We all have too many plastic bags for our own good. If you are like me, you probably save them for another use, be it for garbage or crafts or doggy bags.

I am going to show you how to recycle a plastic bottle to make a handy bag dispensor for under your sijnk or next to the kitty litter.

This is a great way to re-use something(a bottle) that makes re-using something else (plastic bags) easier.

Step 1: Stuff to Find

All you need to make a bag dispenser like this is a large plastic bottle, a utility knife, and about two minutes.

I used a 1 liter bottle, 2 liter bottles have a greater capacity (duh!), but mine was for a small space and it fit right.
Great idea. This will work much better than stuffing them in a random drawer.
very nice for recycling! great idea!!!
good idea but it would only compound my problem, instead of having just to many bags, I'd have 2 many plastic bottles filled with plastic bags laying around ! I usually find the largest plastic bag like from walmart or one of those kind of stores and stuff the smaller bags in there, if/when it gets filled I place it in the halloween shed for ready made body stuffing. That all being said I can see where this could come in handy, like maybe in my truck or car trunk. Thank you for sharing
What a great idea! I didn't have a great uncle to show me things like this when I was a wee lad ;-p Thanks for sharing!
Nice work! Too bad I don't drink anything from plastic bottles.<br><br>By the way, do you have a &quot;sjink&quot; because you live on a &quot;fjord&quot;? :-)
These things are old as the hills. We have had several around my place forever. Anyway, thanks so much for getting it out there!
lol. Yup, my great uncle showed me these little tricks back when I was a wee lad. You are welcome.
