Brown Paper Bags

The Frugal Hostess tries her best to remember to bring some of her 46 thousand reusable shopping bags when she hits the grocery store (a rare occasion, thanks to FruHubs).  But sometimes, she forgets.  When this happens, she gets paper bags rather than plastic ones.

Before you bore everyone with a comment regarding the environmental impact of paper bags being as bad as that of plastic bags, hush.  Plastic bags never die.  Paper bags can go in the compost pile.  Therefore, paper bags are better.

So, there are often a few paper bags floating around the kitchen.  There aren't enough to dedicate a whole drawer to, nor are there so few as to be a non-issue.  How to store them?

FruHo set to googling, but she was surprised that none of her go-to organization bloggers had taken this burning issue on.  TFH was forced to come up with her own ideas.
