I was cleaning the house this morning and I found myself folding plastic bags. My neighbour Lee showed me how she folds her plastic bags a while ago and I teased her mercilessly. “Don’t you have better things to do with your time than fold rubbish bags,” I scoffed.
Well, turns our I didn’t have anything better to do with my time either, because ever since Lee showed me how to fold a plastic bag I’ve been… folding them.
Now, I draw the line at folding ‘everyday’ plastic bags – those I just stuff into the plastic IKEA thingy like a normal person. But I do fold the ones that I throw into the beach bag to put wet togs into; the ones that I keep in the car for all sorts of emergencies; the one in the bottom of my handbag for what exactly I don’t know but the fact is I can have one in the bottom of my handbag because it’s folded so neatly.
So, I was cleaning the house this morning and because I’m not a huge fan of cleaning, I decided that I would make a little video instead. This video is like a little love letter to the humble plastic bag and my buddy Lee as well. I apologise, Lee – folding plastic bags is strangely very satisfying.
Do you have any strange Type A tendencies?
