You can’t throw those things out anymore. They cost a precious $0.05 a piece these days. For as long as I can remember, my Dad has been folding up grocery bags ever so neatly and putting them away for future garbage use.
After I moved out I wanted to keep up the habit of the folded bags. I quickly lost patience.This is what our pile of empty grocery bags looked like.
While I do usually bring reusable bags to the grocery store, sometimes you forget to do so and are left with paying for them. I was browsing the wonderful site that is Pinterest the other day and stumbled across this blog post and and got folding away. This is a similar technique to what my Dad uses to fold up the grocery bags. But these stay rolled up into a almost a pilsbury dough boy crescent roll piece of pastry. Mmm, could almost eat it, couldn’t ya?
I feel accomplished. Thanks Pinterest, for finding Polka dot Pineapple‘s blog! :) Now, anyone want to go buy morgan silver dollars for me, for all of my hard work? All joking aside it took like 25 minutes to do it. I watched the very first episode of Napolean Dynamite on Global while folding. Ha!
