New Use for Your Tissue Boxes


Instead of having plastic produce bags taking up lots of space in a drawer waiting to be recycled or floating around loose in a cabinet, do this…

Pack your stash of plastic bags into an empty tissue box. If you do not want to use the cardboard kind, look for a decorative tissue-box cover that matches your kitchen (or wherever you need to keep a store of plastic bags). Even the bottomless covers will hide the bags away—you just can’t move them around too much. Try to use the largest tissue box or cover you can find— the small ones tend to multiply as you collect more and more plastic bags.
