So here’s my question: what’s wrong with sliding into another Depression and recycling our flour sacks as underware, as our grandmothers did? The flour sacks are already emblazoned with helpful and ironic curve-enhancing phrases like “white flour,” “whole wheat,” and “cracked rye.” Juicy, watch out.

To answer your question, nothing; probably serves us right!
I have a reason why not: I don’t know what flour sacks you’ve seen, but the ones in the bakery my husband works at are made of thick brown paper lined with plastic! Useful for penitential purposes, perhaps, but not truly durable.
I know this is ancient but I just had to say this! I’ve been looking around your blog and greatly enjoying it.
Haha! Well, yes. It doesn’t quite work with modern flour sacks.
