I re-use them for shopping until they're pretty thrashed, then I use them for wastebasket liners.

Compress then then melt them down.
I think supermarkets should totally abandone these bags.
The rip open on the way to the car, go brittle in the sun and are just a waste.
I sometimes melt them down to make impact resistant parts.

There are plenty of projects on Instructables. If those don't work, try Google or Pinterest. I use them for trash or drop them off at the dog park. BTW, the areas near me are charging $.05/bag to try to discourage the use.
