And like most times, I forgot my reusable shopping bags...and after my groceries were put away, I was left with a crumpled pile of plastic bags.
I reuse these all the time. They line my bathroom trashcans, I keep a few in my car for trash or messy baby outfits. And I always have one full of stuff to return or hand me downs to pass on.
These bags are really handy...but they are ugly! I never knew how to store them.
Then today, I found yet another use for an empty baby wipes container. A pop-up bag dispenser!
I shoved a plastic bag in through the top of the container, leaving the handles sticking out.
Then take another bag, hold it buy the handles and straighten it out. Loop the bottom of the bag through the handles of the first one and shove it all in the box.
Repeat until it is full (you can fit a lot!)
And that's it! When you pull one out, another will pop out of the top. I keep this box by my changing table. I don't use a stinky diaper pail. Just toss the mess in the bag, tie it up and throw it in the outside trash can.
This would also work well under a bathroom sink since it condenses the bags so neatly.
Genius, right? :)
