It may be obvious to you since I have a blog dedicated to upcycling, but I love recycling. I try to reuse and recycle as many things as I can because it saves money and helps the environment even just a little bit. One easy way to reuse things is by reusing plastic bags. You can use them for so much (especially if you have a cat with a litter box to scoop. Yuck!). But all those plastic bags need somewhere to go while they are waiting to be reused. I usually take reusable bags when I go grocery shopping, but sometimes I forget or get takeout or whatever and end up with a million plastic bags. But now there is a simply way to store all those bags. And it even incorporates upcycling. Double cycling FTW
- Disinfecting wipes container (if you’re going to cover with paper, don’t worry about the remaining sticky goo. It will come in handy)
- Decorative paper
- Packing tape
And now it’s time to fold your bags. I usually like to sit on the living room floor to do this, because it allows for plenty of space and I can hold the roll in place with my knee while I prepare the next bag. Play around with it and figure out what works for you.
