Looking for a way to contain all of your plastic grocery sacks? Many are moving to the reusable grocery sacks which we use once and a while also but we still use the plastic sacks for bathroom garbage sacks and many other things around the house. This little organizer is not a new idea but I thought I would share it anyway. Here is what you need.
cloth napkin or dish towel
8 in. of 1/4 in. elastic
10 in. strip of ribbon
I started with a cloth napkin I found on clearance on day but you could also use a dish towel which would create a little longer organizer. I folded it is half and cut it about 7 in away from the folded edge. Measure and mark elastic at about 8 inches.
Attach safety pin to elastic and thread through the existing hem of the napkin or towel.
Pull in through until you see your mark of 8 inches and then sew up the side creating a tube.
Turn it ride side out and attach your ribbon to the top.
Stuff it with sacks in the top, and hang it up in your pantry. I found this and some other kitchen organizing tip from Martha here.
