Grocery Bag Holder

We all have to go grocery shopping every once in a while, but what does one do with all those extra bags?  
Some people just throw them away, some people have cute ways to organize them and some people bring their own bags to the store.  


Well, I admit that I've thrown too many of these bags away and then we I need a bag, I don't have them.  Now, I won't have to worry about that any more!  I will always have these bags in stock and I have a super cute way to store them!


Does anyone recognize what this box is from?  It may look familiar...
It is a CapriSun box!  They have redone they way the package their juice boxes and they are perfect for storing bags!  With some cute paper and mod podge, you can turn this box into a trendy organizing tool!


What do you use to store your grocery bags?

That is SO cute! I needed a way to store my grocery bags! I just went to the store to buy CapriSuns!

Great idea. Mine are all stuffed into one grocery bag on the floor of my laundry room. Sad!

Tasha said...

Right now I store mine in a draw string fabric bag someone made for me, but I LOVE this so much more!!!
I am buying Capri Sun tomorrow to make this box.
Thanks so much for sharing this cute idea!

I have two places. My aunt made an angel doll where you shove the bags up her skirt - I'm sure you have seen them. It seems a little obscene.
Also. I keep a large bag hanging on the cabinet handle to stuff bags to be used for messy stuff in the kitchen.

Your box is so cute. I could use it in the bathroom to hold bags to line the trash can!

Thanks for visiting today. I am your newest follower!

This is MUCH cuter than the bag of bags that I have hanging on the handle of my office door. I don't think they sell Capri Suns in Canada but I'll definitely be on the lookout for a box that could do something similar!

What a genius idea! Getting rid of those grocery bags from under the sink is always a challenge. Good idea! Totally pinning this project for future reference!

Oh nice.. I love this idea! Can definitely use this at my place, I have been keeping those grocery bags in the pampers box, works for me but it's better hidden.. Lol! This is a way too cool idea.. Thanks for linking up at friday fun party

How creative. Great idea and very cute. I store mine in a material cow bag holder, I'm a cow collector.

Thanks for sharing your cute bag holder.

Carolyn said...

VERY cute idea. I use a natural stone tissue dispenser on my counter top. So, instead of it holding tissues, it holds bags!

I don't like the idea of throwing grocery bags because they come in handy most of the time! I keep mine in just another big paperbag under the sink but this is a cool idea!
Thanks for sharing at Passion Parade Friday :)

Great idea!! I've got a fabric "tube" thingy that hangs on my pantry door to catch all my plastic bags. I'm always using them for something. But I really like yours so much better!

Susie @Bowdabra said...

Steph @ Crafting in the Rain said...

Cute--I love when you can see some kind of packaging and "know" you can turn it into something else!

Nicole@Show Off Friday said...

That's a great idea! Thanks for sharing.

Patti said...

Great idea...I use a fabric tube that keeps falling off the wall and drives me crazy!! Will have to try this!

What a great idea!! We have a bag storage thing my mom sewed, but never use it. We usually have too many floating around and recycle the rest of them. Thank you for sharing at Sharing Saturday!!

Rachel said...

I love this idea! I had a fabric type bag that ripped a few months ago. I've had my extra bags in a large can but this is so much cuter. I might actually buy my kids some capri sun, just so I can have the box.
Thanks so much for sharing at Terrific Tuesdays.

What a great repurpose! Especially since everyone seems to get overrun with those plastic grocery bags. Thanks for sharing on Tout It Tuesday!

DebbieDoesCreations said...

Right now mine get thrown in the pantry and I use them to throw away stinky diapers. But I need a better way to organize them. I think I found it :) Thanks for sharing at Toot Your Horn Tuesday :)
