Pinkie Winky Tip to organize plastic bags

I save all plastic bags. I have 3 small bags hung on the inside of my broom closet door,1 for small bags,( drug store size), 1 for medium bags, (bread bag size), and 1 for large bags(grocery bag size). As I get bags I take them by a bottom corner with one hand and slide the other hand down them to get the air out them, wind the bag around my fingers tucking the last part through the hole in the middle. This makes them into small balls and they take up less space.

Great idea! I will have to try that. Those bags can take up a lot of space if you don't find a way to crunch them down.
