Even if you use reusable grocery bags, chances are that plastic grocery bags still make their way into your house. Since I reuse the bags I get, I usually stuff them in another plastic bag and shove them under the sink. The trouble is, the bags tend to fall out into the cupboard. So I took around for some better solutions. Here’s what I have so far:
Real Simple suggests you store the plastic bags in an empty tissue box. I have tried this before and found it was annoying to put the bags in the box. But if you only reuse a few plastic bags, this might be a perfect solution for you.
In a similar vein, Nàe Chic recycled a disinfectant cloth containers by making it into a container for her “doggie poo bags.” But it could work for plastic grocery bags too.
Woman’s Day informed me of this “easy-to-hang container has a self-adjusting divider and holds up to 50 grocery bags.” While I wouldn’t buy a special thing just to hold the grocery bags, but this would solve my plastic bag storing needs. Instead, I might keep my eye open for a flip-top garbage can at the thrift store.
Finally, Make It and Love It has a tutorial for making your own grocery bag holder. You put new bags at the top and pull them from the bottom. It’s attractive too.
