I bring some plastic bags to my flat almost everyday. I do not throw them out, instead I reuse them on a daily basis until they wear out. But I have a problem organising them and I am yet to find a way to store them efficiently.
What I mean by effective?
- I want constant insertion time. For example, container like this one has this property - all you need is to squeeze bag in it. Simple folding a bag is also perfectly ok with me.
- I want random access to my bags. That's because there are quite a lot of different types of bags (tiny to large, easy to break to strong ones, etc.) and I want to get a bag I want easily and fast. The container from previous point does not have this property. If I want to get a bag from the middle or the bottom of it, I need to take out all bags above the one I want. That's just irritating and it's the drawback of the vast majority of bag containers.
- I want to have all bags visible - that's similar to previous one, I want to see all the bags, so I can quickly spot and then take the one I want.
I thought of using a few containers, each one for different type of a bag, but after some time I discarded this idea - there are too many types and I would need to have ~10 containers in order to compensate for their drawbacks mentioned above.
I hadn't yet tried it, but I found an interesting video which shows a flag-like folding method. It seems to fit all my needs, but may be also quite time consuming. I would be more than happy to see some other ideas!
