Plastic Bags Under Control

A while ago I showed how I moved furniture around and cleaned out some areas of my home. I cleaned out one of our kitchen closets. The biggest part was cleaning up all the plastic bags. 
I found a good way to store those bags through Pinterest. 

I used an empty tissue box, but I've seen this done with an empty box of wipes too.  

Start by stuffing one bag into the box, and leave one handle hanging out. 
 Then loop another bag through that handle.
Push it all into the box.
 Leave the handle of the second bag out.
And repeat. 
Then when you pull out one bag, the next one comes out ready when you need it. Like tissues. 
 I can't remember exactly how many fit in here, but I know it was at least 20.
 This closet is not perfect, but it looks a lot better. At least you can see the floor now.
I'm currently working on my closet. I'll let you know how it goes. 


  1. A good idea - and I love the new headers. Millie is TOO adorable!

  2. Awesome. I am so doing this. Thanks for the idea!!
