I can’t be the only one who has hoardes and hoardes 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!
This storage method is easy! All you need is a tissue box (covered in some kind of fabric or scrap paper) mounted 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 (hey, I see those Trader Joe’s sacks!) and even fabric grocery bags.
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. Hooks like these will fit right over the edge of your cabinet door! Purchase something similar at Wayfair!
Repurpose an old Clorox wipes container for a conveient (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 more chic.
Just because this project is fabric doesn’t mean you have to break out your sewing machine! This project requires scrap fabric and some glue. Hang yours in the corner of your pantry to cut back on clutter.
If you have kids (or maybe just love soda) chances are you have an old two liter bottle hanging around. Cut off the top, cover it in washi tape and secure it to a cabinet door. Think of all the space you’ll save!
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 them through. A quick coat of chalk paint will make this project fit for any household!
