I have bags of all shapes, sizes and uses stowed around my house. When I actually needed one for a gift or to tote some items to a potluck, I was always rummaging around under sinks or in boxes. It took my husband’s grandaddy to show me the light to organized bags! He never liked things unorganized and the grocery bag issue perplexed him for quite some time. He tried stowing them within each other, putting them in a box, and even bought one of those plastic things that dispenses the grocery bags. Nothing worked quite right so he invented his own bag hanger with an item everyone can find free in his or her closet — a coat hanger!
First, grasp the hook part of your hanger in one hand and the middle of the bottom of the hanger in the other. Pull down gently so the side points come in towards the middle (Fig 1). Second, bend the elongated hanger in half (Fig 2) so that you form a hook to slide the handles of your bag over.
You can then twist the hanging loop around depending on where you want to use your new bag hanger. I use one of mine in my kitchen pantry to hold my grocery bags (Fig 3) and I use others in my wrapping area to hold all of my gift bags. One for baby bags, one for wedding bags, one for birthday bags, etc (Fig 4).
