While we have an amazing kitchen and lots of cupboards we don't have a pantry or any sort of closet to keep all the bags and since I really like to recycle as much as possible I like to reuse bags whenever possible but after a while you end up with a mess of bags and a husband who doesn't fully understand why I can't just throw the bags away.
Here we have our little cabinet overstuffed with bags, both plastic and paper. But it was the plastic bags that seemed to keep growing and growing and growing.
A Costco sized dishwasher pellet container. Which you can see isn't much taller than my 15" MacBookPro. Actually I think its the same height I just have the screen tilted.
Now if anyone has some awesome space saving trick for the paper bags other than just folding them flat until we reuse then as our recycling bags, I'd love to hear it.
