Get Organized and Fold Your Plastic Bags

Mar 24 2014 - 7:00am

If you're still opting for plastic bags when hitting the grocery store, you probably have a drawer or closet that looks like this pile times 10. Save space and start folding those bags! We came across this smart idea on Pinterest [1] and couldn't wait to see if it actually worked. Here's what to do:

  1. Smooth a plastic bag horizontally on your work space and start folding it up in three-inch sections. Continue folding until you reach the other side.
  1. Starting at the closed end of the plastic bag, begin folding diagonally, creating a triangle. Keep folding until you reach the other side.
  1. Now tuck the ends into the fold, and you have a nice little triangle of a plastic bag.
  1. Check out how compact the plastic bags are once folded!
  1. Stash a few in your purse to use the next time you hit the grocery store, making this a supersmart way to store your plastic bags!
