I can’t be the only one who has hordes and hordes of unused plastic bags from the grocery store…even though I’ve been bringing reusable bags for years, we still somehow end up with a never-ending supply of those plastic ones. If you are like me, you probably need a bit of a better storage system…luckily I’ve found 7 great ways to store all of those plastic bags!
For an easy storage method, grab a tissue box (covered in some kind of fabric or scrap paper) and mount it on the inside of your cabinet (use command strips!). The bags will pull easily though the top slot!
Any work-from-home guru probably has a few of these plastic filing boxes hanging around somewhere. Put them to good use by mounting them inside a kitchen cabinet. They’re big enough to accommodate paper bags and even fabric grocery bags. Use command strips to attach the filing slots on the inner cabinet.
Looking for a storage solution that is a little more rustic? Don’t look any further! A metal basket attached to the back of a cabinet makes for an easy storage solution. Bathroom caddy hooks like these will fit right over the edge of your cabinet door!
Chic Cleaning Wipe Dispenser
Repurpose an old Clorox wipes container for a convenient (and space-saving) way to store your plastic bags. Cover the outside in Washi tape or scrapbook paper to make your storage container look a little chicer.
DIY Bag Dispenser
Just because this project is fabric doesn’t mean you have to fear to break out your sewing machine! It’d easy to whip up your own plastic bag dispenser, just check out this tutorial from Easy Sewing For Beginners.
If you have kids (or maybe just love soda) chances are you have an old two-liter soda bottle hanging around. Cut off the top, cover it in washi tape and secure it to a cabinet door for a great plastic bag dispenser. Think of all the space you’ll save!
Tin Can Storage
Or, you could reuse a tin can instead! You’ll need one that comes equipped with a plastic lid, but once you cut a hole in it, it’ll be easy to pull the plastic bags through. A quick coat of chalk paint would make this project fit for any household!
