A colleague found this an easy, do-it-yourself project for storing used plastic bags. I've already got a used-bag holder, but this one seems like a fun alternative. You just need a 2-quart plastic bottle, a box cutter and/or scissors, a Sharpie, some durable tape, and plenty of excess plastic bags. As the Web page notes, "Chances are you already have everything you need to make one for free. Or you can buy one at The Container Store for $4.99 plus $6.50 [shipping & handling]. Your choice." Plastic bags are probably the most reused item in my household. I use them for lunches, the kids carry stuff to school in them, and ... well, we have two dogs. You get the picture.
Reduce, REUSE, Recycle
