    I will say when I first saw this I went nah, too much effort and time. Well, when I got home from wally world today I went ahead and did it. Oh my goodness...a little more time than stuffing them all in one bag, but so worth it. Problem now is I have all those stuffed in my pantry to do~lol

    Yes, it's quite a handy organizational tip. Also when you set out to fold a few, one is forced to really look at just HOW many bags we ACTUALLY have! One afternoon, a friend and I sat over tea and cake and folded, folded, folded. Happily she regained pantry space--200+ bags later! Thanks for your thoughts!

    what so special about folding the bags up one by one? I was expecting you to show us how to fold all the bags in 30 sec... now THAT'd be something special to see.

    Think O-R-I-G-A-M-I. You could easily stack a few bags on top of each other and the job done even faster. Hmmm, if you wanted to take of all of them in 30s, you could put them in the circular file...HAHAHAH! Thanks for your comment. Have a nice one!

    No, thank you for your vote & time! Really, sometimes, it's just the simple things that can make such a big difference. It's something of an after-shopping-ritual in my house. Hope it becomes one in yours! Thanks again!

    Wow, this is great. I often bring these bags with me in my backpack for reuse and they are a mess and take up lots of room. This is neat. Gets my vote and stars. Thanks for sharing.

    Thank you for your vote, your kind words. Sometimes it's the little things in life that make big differences. At least one's bag drawer can be tidy... Now if I can just get to the garage....
