    That is certainly a lot neater than my current storage system: keep stuffing them into another plastic bag until they explode out the top. :)

    I'm guessing yours take up much less space too, and this is definitely easier to tuck in a pocket to walk the pooch. Nicely done.

    Great idea. Thanks for sharing this excellent video!

    Thanks a lot! Good luck with folding your bags :)

    If it's the sort of bag which has actual handles (rather than holes in the side at top), you can roll it up, then at the top, roll one handle over, then tie them together to stop them unwinding.

    Thanks for your comment. I will definitely try this technique to fold a bag with handles.

    That is also a great way to fold a plastic bag!
