Weed Killer and Plastic Bags

While I’m feeling a bit lazy this weekend, I have accomplished a few tasks.  First, I made my own weed killer!  I found this recipe on Pinterest and thought I should try it out because G loves to kill weeds.

You only need 3 ingredients:

G bought a fancy bottle to store the killer in:

I used about 56 ounces of apple cider vinegar, 3/4 cup of salt and 2 squeezes of Dawn liquid soap.  I mixed it all together in a pitcher and then poured it into the spray bottle.  G was pretty excited!

He sprayed it all over the place and when we checked the weeds about an hour and a half later, they were already dying!  Mission accomplished.

After making that magical creation, I decided to tackle all the plastic bags in our house.  We store them under the kitchen sink and they were basically exploding out of the cabinet.  Here’s the huge pile:

We rarely use the bags so I don’t know why we keep so many of them.  Anyway, when I was on the weed killer website, I saw a cool idea for storing plastic bags!  All you do is fold them into triangles.

That is a folded plastic bag!  I folded 15 bags into triangles:

Here’s the comparison between 15 folded bags and 15 unfolded bags:

Pretty amazing, right?

I decided we only need to keep 15 on hand (I don’t know why I picked 15) and we will recycle all the other bags.  I put the 15 in a small container we can store under the sink:

I really love organizing sh*t.
