tuesday tip

if y'all are like me, you suffer from the same thing as i do..... too many plastic wal-mart, target, or grocery store bags hangin' around! (i have a huge trash bag full of them to recycle right now.) but a few here and there can really come in handy. especially in the car!! and to easily store them without having a wal-mart bag full of bags in your car? use an empty kleenex box!

shove a bunch of plastic bags in there, then toss the kleenex box in your trunk or back seat. grab a bag when you have a lot of trash in your car, or when you have a lot of little stuff to bring in from your car, or when your grocery bag rips and you have canned goods all over the trunk!

now i just hope you don't end up needing kleenexes while you're driving around!

That is a great idea! We have a huge Christmas-time red Target bag that holds all of our plastic bags but I love this idea and I am totally going to use it!

By the way, thanks for the comment. I'm glad I'm not the only one who adds completed items to their to do list! I will definitely be posting lots of pictures of the wedding so stay tuned!

That is a splendid idea! I like to keep them in my car for trash bags but I usually just stuff the bags between my seats. haha

Ditto about loving the Target bags! I use them in my diaper pail instead of buying the refills. :)

I love all your pics. You have such a great and creative eye for things.

I also love reading your blog. I need to get better about checking it every day though, so I don't get so far behind. (you are just to darn good at posting!!!)

What a great idea is that. Our car needs all the help it can get some days. =D

Thanks for the comment, Bean dip is too important to throw away just because of some bite marks from the dog.

That's a good idea! I have a second wipes container on Annalyn's changing table with plastic bags (for those nasty dirty diapers), but I just shoved a few bags in my glove compartment. A Kleenex box will be much better!
