Plastic Bag Storage Tip

Ever open the plastic bag cabinet or drawer and have them all "spring" out at you? I was condensing some today when I thought "I wonder how small they can get?" So, I rolled one from the bottom up so the air would leave, and when it was done, it was the shape of a long cigar. I then folded it in 1/2 and 1/2 again, and stuffed it in a spice jar. I actually got 3 in there! Now, I am not saying you have to put them in spice or medicine bottles, but you can fit a lot in ziplock snack bags, old coffee cans, pringles tubes, or just about any container that keeps them "corralled"! I hope this helps.

I use an empty paper towel tube to store plastic bags. Roll up each bag and insert in tube. The tube fits neatly in any drawer or cabinet.

Excellent way to store in the car glove box for extra litter bags, too :-)
