Get Organized: Plastic Bag Holders

I had a small epiphany this week.  I was at the end of another box of tissues and was about to throw the box away when I remembered my kitchen cupboard full of plastic bags that are continually falling out every time I open it.   The empty box seemed like perfect way to keep those bags contained, yet still accessible... so the the Tissue Box Plastic Bag Holder was born!

Each box doesn't hold too many bags, but it's nice that I can have separate containers... one for upstairs, one for downstairs.   The boxes are pretty too!  I was having fun photographing them even though a certain some one and his teddy kept sneaking into my pictures :)

  1. ...and if you glue several of them together you can make a "shelf"...

    Great idea!

  2. Another AWESOME idea! How come I've never thought of that?! I keep mine in an empty disinfecting wipe container downstairs, but your idea would be perfect for upstairs. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I'm going to store one in each bathroom and near kitty litter so they are easily accessible for the kids when they do their chores!

    1. I've never actually attached the boxes to the cabinets- just sat them inside- but that is a brilliant idea!

  9. How do you put them in the box, just jam them in, do they pull out easy, is there a way to get them to come out one at a time

  10. i actually fold mine and layer them. i can fit over 50 bags like that. my daughter -in-law bought me a plastic tissue box holder with a slide out bottom and i fill it that way. otherwise you can use the paper ones and fold them and insert from the top...that works also. got the idea from my mom and i just love it.
