Home Cleaning Tip: Grocery Bag Origami

I am really irritated to see the piles of plastic bags on our cabinet. They've been there for months!

And last Friday, I was so happy to find Niko’s post about this and how to stash them away neatly. She got the link from Kikamz. I got inspired by it that I tried folding some by following the instructions.

Hubby saw it and tried folding too. His OC side got the better of him so he took out all the plastic bags from the cabinet and folded all of them! He even taught Gabby, who upon seeing what his Dad was doing said, “Wow, Daddy! You’re doing Origami!”


before: heaps of unfolded plastic bags


after: folded plastic bags in the cabinet


Have a happy, blessed and clutter-free Sunday! :)
