We still have plenty of reusable plastic shopping bags hanging around. They are messy and ugly, but I do not want to throw them away as they are totally reusable as shopping bags.
Here is a great way to fold them up neatly and tightly so they store away perfectly in small places or in the car. Using this folding method is super easy once you know how.
I think just following the pictures below, step by step, is the easiest way to show you how - so here goes .....
|Step 1 - lay the bag flat|
|Step 2 - fold the bottom 1/3 upwards|
|Step 3 - fold in 3rds again|
|Step 4 - fold the right hand 3rd inwards|
|Step 5 - fold the left hand 3rd inswards too|
|Step 6 - Fold one bottom corner |
|Step 7 - Fold the other bottom corner|
up diagonally too
(hold the folds together at this point)
|Step 8 - Pull both the handles over and |
then loop under the bottom point
|Step 10 - Done! Now store away|
in the car or in your bag/case/pocket
I hope that was easy, fun and useful!
Take care and stay nice
