How to Fold a Grocery Bag

First off.....I AM VERY BEHIND! I just finished downloading all the pictures from my camera to my computer and realized i have at least 15 recipes to post still! So, of course, another story behind folding bags. Once i was at Ranya's house and i asked for a plastic bag for some reason and so she gave me one. I looked at her and i was so shocked, Why was her bag not crinkled like grocery bags normally are? She looked at me like duh and said "I fold my bags". Okay of course leave it to Ranya to fold her grocery bags! Anyways so the other day (actually a few months ago) i went grocery shopping and i had a lot of bags (i re use my bags so i save them) so i decided to learn how to fold bags . Now you are probably thinking, "what does this have to do with a food blog" WELL for your information in order to cook you need to go buy groceries and in order to bring your groceries home you need bags. I didn't really need to justify myself but i did anyways, oh and side note (yet again) this is a real space saver. Anyways here is how i learned how to fold bags:

Start off by laying your bag flat
then fold the bag in half (make sure to iron it with your hand so it is as flat as possible)
Then fold it once more so that it is long
Then you are going to fold the corner up to make a small triangle (kind of like folding a spanikopita)
Then fold it again
Then once more to make a point at the bottom.
Keep folding the triangles up
Then comes the handle

Fold so you are left with a point
Then life it up and tuck the rest into the crease
And there you have it a perfectly folded plastic bag
See how compact they are and NOT WRINKLED!
