Plastic bags and more plastic bags – every time I go grocery shopping, I get MORE! I have plastic bags running out my ears!!! I don’t want to throw them away because that seems irresponsible and I do use them. I just don’t have a good method for storing them so they end up crammed behind the kitchen trash can or in the bathroom closet.
I’ve seen some interesting plastic bag storage methods here and there but haven’t ever taken the time to give any of them a try. In all honesty, I really didn’t think most of them would work.
But last week I decided I’d had enough. I tried getting a bag out of the bag mess and ended up with four or five. I was so frustrated I decided it was time to do something. I just happened to have an empty Kleenex box so that was my storage container of choice. I wadded each bag tightly and pushed it into the box until I couldn’t fit any more. Then I gave it a try. It was awesome!
I still have a couple areas with stashed bags but that’s only because I’m out of empty Kleenex boxes. As soon as I get more, I’m filling those boxes with plastic bags.
