Genconnect: Food Packaging: Where to keep plastic bags

Storing plastic bags in an organized and space-efficient manner can help reduce clutter and make them easily accessible when needed. Here are several ideas on where and how to store plastic bags:

  1. Plastic Bag Dispenser:

    • Use a specially designed plastic bag dispenser that can be hung on the wall or inside a cabinet.
    • You can either purchase a dispenser or make one yourself using a large tissue box or an empty container.
  2. Plastic Bag Organizer:

    • There are various organizers available in the market specifically designed for storing plastic bags. They usually come with hooks or can be mounted on the wall or inside cabinets.
  3. Kitchen Drawer:

    • Designate a kitchen drawer for storing plastic bags. You can fold the bags neatly and store them inside the drawer.
  4. Under-Sink Storage:

    • Use the space under the kitchen sink or bathroom sink to store plastic bags. You can use a small bin or a plastic bag organizer to keep them organized.
  5. Hanging Bag Holder:

    • Attach a bag holder inside a cabinet door or on the wall in your kitchen or pantry to keep the bags organized and easily accessible.
  6. Plastic Bag Dispenser Box:

    • Reuse an old tissue box or a cereal box by cutting a hole in the top to dispense plastic bags. Keep this in a convenient spot, like near your trash bin or in a pantry.
  7. Reusable Bag Storage:

    • If you use reusable shopping bags, you can store them inside a larger bag or basket and place it in a convenient location.
  8. Pegboard Storage:

    • Install a pegboard on a wall and hang the plastic bags using hooks. This is a great way to keep them organized and visible.
  9. Ziplock Bag:

    • You can also store a bunch of folded plastic bags inside a large ziplock bag. This keeps them contained and you can hang this bag in a closet or on a hook.
  10. Elastic Band or Rubber Band Method:

    • Roll each plastic bag into a compact cylinder and secure it with an elastic band or rubber band. You can then store these rolled-up bags in a basket, bin, or drawer.

Tips for Storing Plastic Bags:

  • Folding Method: Flatten the plastic bag, fold it neatly, and then roll it up. This will save space and make it easier to store.

  • Quantity Control: Try to limit the number of plastic bags you keep. If you have too many, consider recycling the excess.

  • Recycle: Instead of storing an excessive number of plastic bags, consider recycling them. Many grocery stores have recycling bins specifically for plastic bags.

By organising and storing your plastic bags properly, you can reduce clutter and make it easier to reuse and recycle them when needed.
