Storing Those Plastic Bags

Hello everyone! I'm linking up with Tara for the brightest part of any Monday...
I tried to keep my Monday Made It simple because we're in our final nine days of school and things are getting busy! 

So this is a quick and easy storage fix I learned all about from my kind friend Diane over at Fifth in the Middle. You can see her post about Grocery Bag Containers by clicking the green link, hers came out beautifully!
Fifth in the Middle
Diane showed us how she converted a canister of wipes into a handy storage container for those oh-so-helpful plastic bags you might have floating around the classroom...
I just made a label, laminated it, and hot glued it to the container. Then I removed those extra flaps on the inside (so the bags could slide out a bit easier) and voila!
I love this because the container takes up very little space and I don't have to look at my ugly grocery bags anymore! Now they are all tucked away, ready for use at any moment. Thanks Diane!!

I have the label all set to download here, in case you would like to use it as well. Please click on the image below for a direct download...
Did you make anything this Monday? I can't wait to see what everyone linked up!

  9. Such a great idea!! Currently my plastic bags are shoved in a space with my paper cutter... not ideal and it temps me to just throw them away so I don't have to deal with them, which I don't want to do!! This is such a perfect solution and I can't wait to make this asap!!! And since we are still in school I know I'll have a few more of those containers getting emptied out before our last day! :)

  13. This is a great idea! Right now I have all of my plastic bags shoved in an old tissue box which works, but is nowhere near as cute!

  17. I love when you make labels or posters or anything for that matter. They always look so perfect. I need to learn from this- sometimes simple is better. Ok, ok, simple is always better.

    I hope that you have a good 7 days (?) left! Summer is around the corner!
