Last week my friend Lisa showed me something that has changed my life, and I just can't keep it to myself.
What do YOU do with YOUR plastic bags?
I either stuff them into another plastic bag, or shove them into a fabric tube thing that has elastic on the top and bottom. It works great, until you fill it up. Then the bags start falling out the bottom.
Guess what? There's a better way. Are you ready?
Flatten your bag.
Fold it in half length-wise.
Fold it in half again.
Start folding the bag like a flag, from the bottom up.
Fold the handles into the now tidy plastic triangle.
Is that beautiful, or what? Not only does it save a ton of space, but now you have the perfect excuse for putting off house cleaning or feeding your children ... you've gotta' fold those bags.
