Easily Storing Grocery Bags!!

I am all about saving grocery bags to reuse, and I know that I'm not the only person, because I see all these crazy contraptions to hold and organize them! I'm sorry, but I'm not about to stuff my bags into an old, empty Lysol wipe dispenser. 
Too much hassle, and with my luck it probably wouldn't work anyways.
I recently figured out a way to store my bags in a really efficient, organized way and I'm just too excited to keep it to myself.
This is a before shot of the drawer that I kept my baggies in: 
Underneath are paper bags too. Its pretty disgraceful if I do say so myself. 
Here is after:
Gahh, it's so pleasing to my eyes. Oh, the plastic bags are out of sight in the small Nordstroms bag.
Here is how I did it:

   P.S. sorry the pictures are so small, I intended them to be bigger. 

There you have it! It takes a minute or two which my mother would say is absurd, but I think it is a minute or two well spent. 
Organize away my pretties, and have a wonderful week!


  1. That is a super cute way to store plastic bags!

  2. Hi I am following you now and I really love your blog. First I must say you are very pretty and secondly that this post reminded me of my sister who also folds bags neatly. I usually tell her it is a little anal :) but I do understand that it takes up less space. I also enjoyed reading about the date jar in your earlier post and think I will give it a try.
    I would love for you to follow along.

  3. Thanks for linking up on my Bloglovin blog hop. I didn't see a link to a Bloglovin profile on your blog. Do you have one?

  4. Hi Terra! Just blog hopping and came over to your blog. Love this idea, but more importantly LOVE the list below. I'm definitely writing those down. Although we have a 2 year old, we still love our date nights and need some new fresh ideas! :) Anyway, I'm your newest follower and I hope you'll stop by and follow back!

  5. Oh MY! This is awesome! I love organizing tips and love using shopping bags in my smaller household trashcans. Definitely going to try this out! Sarah @

  6. So smart!! I use these bags for lunches but they are exploding out of my pantry. I am definitely going to need to try this!

    PS. found you on the "similar blogs to your blog" portion of bloglovin ;)
