On-the-Go Grocery Bag Storage

With all of the best intentions I often don’t have a re-usable grocery bay when I need one. I use them once, take them into the house with the groceries and then forget to bring them back to the car. I was about to buy more reusable bags when I came up with a great idea.

I stuffed an empty paper towel roll with used plastic bags from other shopping trips and stashed it under the seat in my car. I liked this idea so well that I also stuffed a couple of toilet paper rolls with plastic bags and stashed one in each of my favorite purses and tote bags. Now I’m never without a shopping bag when I need one.

To keep my supply replenished I would try to remember to bring plastic bags out to my car to stuff the semi-empty tube but that never seemed to happen, so now I refill a tube when in the house and every now and then I remember to bring it out to the car. You may find a better way to keep your bag stash replenished but this one works for me.

I started this blog to share with you all the results of years of turning trash into treasures. Hopefully I'll spark some new creative thoughts and if that happens I hope that you'll share your discoveries and together we’ll build a blog that will singlehandedly reduce global warming and save the world! Okay, maybe that’s a grand goal but we should be able to at least downsize our own trash output.
