Paper Bag Organizers

I’m a bag lady.

No really. I have a tendency to collect paper bags. I tell myself I’ll use them to haul stuff, and I do, but they accumulate faster than I would like. With this is mind, I finally found a good way to put them work!

Just fold down the edges. Two folds for a tall container, three folds for a shorty. Considering they are paper, these suckers are surprisingly sturdy. I’m using grocery bags designed to haul 20+ pounds of market goods, so it makes sense they would stand up (and if they don’t, that’s okay too, it’s not like they cost an arm and a leg).

I think I’m going to make a bunch of them to help sort out stuff inside drawers. My New Years resolution for 2014 is to get organized (what else is new?) and these might come in handy.

Happy New Year!!!

    Nice – I am in the process of making “drawers” in a bookcase by cutting down cardboard boxes, adding felt to the bottom, and then modpodging the fronts. I may even add “hardware” with loops of leather. How was CA?

    Maybe you could incorporate this idea with those cardboard bottoms that come with drinks. Like starbucks refreshers in a 12 pack, and other drinks. I feel strange throwing them away (recycling, I mean.)

    They may “Contain 40% Post Consumer Recycled Content” (as the picture indicates), but the finished product should indicate that they are “100% Altered for Repurpose by Peaches” and put to good use. There is no end to the usefulness of brown paper bags!
