What to do with MTM shirt bags?

Maybe a newb question. I've just bought a couple of online MTM shirts, and both came with a company logo bag. (Blank Label and Moderntailor.com, if you're interested.) I see from this forum that other MTM shirt operations supply a similar bag - inexpensive cloth made to fit 1-2 folded shirts.

What do you do with a little tote like this? I can't imagine a situation where I'll need to carry a single folded shirt around. Has anyone found a good use for these bags?

Mine typically find themselves a new home in the trash within 24-48 hours. I'm not sure why they waste their time with them.

Cut them up into some squares and use them to polish your shoes.

Are these not like the 'green' grocery bags you use to cut down on plastic bags? (I always wonder who can fit their weekly supply purchase into one of them!)
I wish they wouldn't bother. I'd rather have the $5 or whatever they cost cut from the purchase price.

I bought a beautiful pair of Fins driving mocs and it came in this elaborate girly canvas makeup type bag which I gave to my GF. I even asked if they would knock $10 off any future order and not bother with the bag and the reply I got seemed bemused that any man wouldn't want such a pointless effeminate 'free' gift.

"Green" grocery bags hold as much of my groceries as the plastic or paper ones. But these shirt bags seem quite useless. The Modern Tailor bag wasn't even holding the shirt - just folded next to it.

I thought of that, but the cloth seems to rough for polishing shoes.
I guess we could just ask why they include the bags on one of the affiliate threads here.
