After spending a full day at work followed by parents’ evening and then making dinner, it was late evening before I could think about what small decluttering task I could fit into today.
Instead of walking into the kitchen to clean up the daily remains, I walked into the spare room to get some inspiration.
Whilst tidying up in there yesterday, I found many carrier bags so I put them to one side next to the pile that I found in the utility room last week. I’ve started placing the grocery shopping bags in this very cute sailor carrier bag holder that my mother in law bought me several years ago…
She’d be pleased to know that I still use it, although it’s lost its hanging loop so I’ve tied a rubber band to the top. It’ll come in handy now that the shops in the UK charge for carrier bags and I can maybe keep it hanging behind the shoe cupboard door so that it’s easy to grab a bag when I’m popping out to the shops.
So, what do I do with the rest of these?
I spent ten minutes this evening sorting into sizes and types. Sad, I know, but necessary for my decluttering project because otherwise they would stay in my way in the spare room forever.
So, how do you store your carrier bags and how many do you have? I stopped counting (out of embarrassment) when I got to 50 bags! I know it’s nice to have a variety of different sizes and colours; but realistically, am I ever going to use that many at one time?
