One of the projects that has been on my list forever is a plastic bag holder. As much as we take our re-useable bags shopping with us we always seem to have a slew of plastic grocery bags at home. In a big exploding pile.
So, the other day I finally took the bull by the horns and made one. It took maybe 15 minutes? It's funny how you put things off and it turns into a huge deal in your mind. And then you are done in a snap. So, if you've got a spare 15 minutes and an exploding bag problem, I recommend making a plastic bag holder.
Of course you can make it an size you want, mine is roughly 10x30. I cut out two rectangles at this size.
