DIY: Coffee Can Bag Holder

We have some sort of weird obsession with re-using things. It stems from both of our pack rat tendencies and my Seattle roots. We just don't like to throw things away if we feel like they can be used again!

We save paper bags. You know, like from the grocery store and stuff? We use them for little trash can liners, lunch bags, used kitty litter, etc. It's recycling, and it saves us money. Score!

We also love Trader Joe's coffee, and save the cans that it comes in. They're cool and they can hold stuff. Double score.

I got sick of seeing a variety of coffee blends on our shelf holding the plastic bags, so last weekend while it was pouring outside, I got a little crafty! And I would just be rude not to share with y'all. :)






Hope you likey!

I like this! My bags are just stuffed in our pantry. I might just try this! Need to get my hands on some coffee cans though, first!

So cute! I am always saving all kinds of containers--coffee cans, jars, wine bottles--Ben thinks it's crazy. But, like you, one day, they will become SOMETHING! ;)
