How to fold and store plastic bags

This isn’t the first time I have posted on how to fold and store plastic bags. Way back in 2015, I shared a method on how to fold plastic bags in neat little triangles – you can check that out here.  After this post, you’ll have a couple of ideas for storing plastic bags.

You know those plastic bags the ones that were banned and frowned upon, so every time you’d go shopping on a whim and didn’t have a plastic bag, you either had to buy the plastic or buy the cloth ones… then this pandemic hits and suddenly plastic is once again KING – I find myself with too many and they are getting messy and I wanted to try a new method of folding and storing plastic bags. This is just the first bunch I did, they were hanging off my kitchen chair.

First take all the bags and fold them in half and smooth them out.

Now take another bag and lay it over the first bag at the bottom of the bag (as shown below).

Now fold the top of the first bag down and make sure it points to the left and start to roll the bag down toward the next bag, roll it right over the next bag and continue on adding another bag at the bottom and keep rolling until you have rolled all of your bags.

You will end up with a cylinder of bags, that will act like pulling tissue out of a box, one will follow the other.  IMG_6532

At this point, if you have an empty cylinder shaped container or even an empty tissue box, you can insert your bags in the container or tissue box with the first bag coming up through the top. This is a neat and tidy way to store those bags and when you need one, you can easily pull one out at a time.  You can get creative and decorate the container you chose to match your decor scheme.

I hope this was useful and helpful and gave you a quick, easy way to store those, once again, popular plastic shopping bags.
