Four Ways To Store Plastic Grocery Bags

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.

  1. I fold my into triangles (think of folding a flag is how someone described it to me once) and then I store in a big gift bag under the sink. Saves a TON of space! I also fold the bags into a long strip and then tie them into a knot. equally just as small. This is what I do to differentiate between the ones that have holes and the ones that don’t. The ones with no holes get used in the kitchen, the rest get used anywhere else.

  42. I cut a hole in a gallon jug (laundry or orange juice jugs work well) about 3-4 inches in diameter. It works great. Cut carefully with an exacto knife or sturdy scissors I also use a big vase, the kind that holds a dozen roses. It doesn’t hold as many bags, but it looks nice. Vases can be found at thrift stores for practically nothing. A ceramic pitcher would work as well.
