Although I am trying to be good and remember to take my own bags to the grocery store, I still end up with a drawer full of plastic bags. I have 3 cats so the bags are useful for dealing with litter, but they are always a mess and take up a lot of drawer space.  An old large coffee can makes a great dispenser.

Choose a can that has a plastic lid. Clean the old label off the coffee can. Draw a 3 inch circle in the center of the lid. Poke the end of your scissors through the center of the lid and cut out the circle along the traced line. Spray paint the can with the color of your choice and use either a stencil or stick on letters to write BAGS… or whatever word takes your fancy. When the canister is dry, fill with plastic bags, put the lid on and pull a little of one bag through. No more messy bags.
