Everyone has at least one drawer or cabinet that is a mess right? I'm going to show you my messy kitchen cabinet where I store my garbage bags, plastic grocery bags and cutting boards.
Don't judge me yet!
Come look inside.....
A huge mess.
So now comes the awesome idea from pinterest. One of my coworkers told me about this idea to keep all those plastic bags under control. You simply fold them like flags or footballs. Remember that trick from when you were a little kid (or am I showing my age)?
|lay the bag flat and push the air out of it|
|fold in half|
|fold in half again|
|Fold your first triangle and just continue making triangles until you get to the end|
tuck in the tail to the fold
This is what it looks like when you are all done.
I just removed the lid and added all my little footballs. Just in case you are wondering there are 53 in here. Yes I did take the time to fold them all, hubby came in and again thought that I lost my mind. Believe me it was worth the time it took to fold them.
Now I am proud to show you the inside of my kitchen cabinet.
I love you pinterest and whoever came up with this original idea.
Now as long as I keep my container filled with bags I know I will never run out and the rest of the bags will just get tossed out.
Update 3/17/13: This is exactly how this cupboard looks today. I would recommend this idea to anyone.
