My Grocery Bag Dispenser

I am becoming way too co-dependent on Pinterest.  I honestly don’t know how I functioned before without it.

Some might say I’m on Pinterest too much.  But here’s the thing.  It’s adding value to my life.

Yes, most social networks suck me in and have me wasting time chatting, tweeting and responding to stuff, but Pinterest is different.  It pulls me and is helping me become a better person.

It motivates me.

It helps me organize.

It helps me plan menus for my family.

It helps generate decorating ideas for my house.

And as creative and ingenious as I think I am, there are people on Pinterest far more ingenious and creative than me.

For example, I would have NEVER thought to store grocery bags in a wipe container before Pinterest.

That’s green ingenuity at its finest, folks!  And if you were already sitting on this gem of a green idea, then you should have shared pinned it.

You could have gone viral on Pinterest.

As for my adaptation to the grocery bag dispenser, I didn’t have an empty Wet Ones or Clorox wipes container to use, but I have tons of empty baby wipes containers laying about my house.  So, I recreated this creativeness with one of those.  Viola!

I’m sure someone will share some cute, creative way to cover the Luvs label or the wipe container with fabric or scrapbook paper and some Mod Podge. I’m sure it’s out there on Pinterest.  I just haven’t looked for it yet.  Until then, I’m fine with this happy little Luvs baby handing me grocery bags for to dispose of dirty diapers.

And she tucks away nicely in Little Lion Man’s changing table dresser drawer.

Thank you, Pinterest, for my handy-dandy dirty diaper bag dispenser tip.

Now, I just need to learn understand how to make the bags pop out of the container.

    I always wonder how you get the next bag to pop up. Haven’t tried this pin out in real life. Pinterest is so wonderful though. I can sit at the computer for hours and feel crafty, creative and organized, while doing nothing at all 🙂

    I have not yet given into the Pinterest rage. I’m so close to giving in though. It’s things like what you showed that make me want to give in. I feel the addiction coming to consume me! Love the baby wipe dispenser idea! I think I’m gonna have to try that!

    Ha! Genius. That was my question, too. How do you make them stick together in there so the next one pops out? I do love me some Pinterest. Off to find your boards. 🙂

    Oh my goodness, this is great! Not only did I learn a great new way to store those annoying, but handy, plastic bags but I also found a few great things to repin as well. Also? I’m so glad I’m not alone in my Pinterest addiction! Seriously, my health and fitness board is out of control! lol
