Tip for Tuesday

I like to keep some of the plastic bags you get from different stores.  You never know when you might need one!  However, they can take up a lot of room and look messy.  I saw this tip a few weeks ago, and tried it out.  It really doesn't take long to roll them and it works!
If you save them too, you might like this tip.

This is a nice idea, but I really had to laugh. No way will I take the time to fold plastic bags. I ball them up and store them in one of their own. It works and hangs on a hook in the laundry room.

Wow, I've never seen that before. I store my plastic bags in a huge fabric bag that used to hold grass seeds, I think. It came to me through my husband's family; they have a lot of weird old things.

I keep them, too...lots of uses!

Terri - I kept mine in a bag too, but they seem to puff up and take up a lot of space. This way I can store a bunch in a small space, and I bet it only takes about 10 minutes to do a bunch of them. :)

That is a clever idea. Thanks so much for sharing, Mari.

I only use my reusable grocery bags, but I can see how this would take up less space and keep things organised! xx

I save mine in a bag on a hook in the laundry room like Terri D but it is a great tip.

I used to fold all of our plastic bags like that! But now it is law here in Scotland that stores have to charge 5 pence per plastic bag. So we now always use our reusable environmentally friendly bags for shopping.

Great idea! I'm trying to get better about using my recyclable bags -but I still always have a lot of these around.

Thanks for the tip! ;)

I save plastic bags also, but not the ones that have holes in them. I mean, what good is a bag with holes, right? Mary, my cousin, made me a bag holder out of fabric for me to use for this purpose. I stuff them in the top and they come out the bottom. It is a very handy piece of fabric! I like the idea of folding the bags like that. I think I will try that.

Fun! I'm keeping my stash in an old tissue box under the sink. It's amazing how many you can jam into one little space!
