Plastic bags

After all that shopping, what to do with the mountain load collection of plastic bags? Recycle! Don't just throw them away in the bin or on the road. Send for recycling, dispose them into specially labelled "for plastics only" recycle bins, or simply reuse it!

As my area does not provide any recycling bins nor recycling services. Reusing the bags is the best option. However, it can be annoying when storing plastic bags. They're smooth, lightweight and do clutter up the drawer. Crumpling the bags up simply makes it worst as the bags tend to store air. And instead of space saving, it'll take up even more! At home, I was taught to fold the bags. Not by folding it into halves and quarters. But into little triangles. I don't know who came up with this technique, but at home, plastics bags are kept in this way.

From that bundle of plastics to this neat compact little triangles, they're easy to store, saves space and fuss free.

15 bags!
