To fold the bag, Brenda demonstrated that you must first flatten it completely and then fold it in three before folding the two sides to the center.
After this you need to fold the bottom corners together to make a triangle and repeat this on both sides.
Finally, insert the handles into the bag, and the bag should resemble a small, neat triangle ready to be taken out of the store.
Fold a reusable plastic bag in five easy steps
1. Flatten the plastic bag completely.
2. Then fold it in three.
3. Once the bag is folded in three, fold the two sides in towards the center.
4. Repeat on both sides.
5. Insert the handles into the bag and the bag should look like a small, neat triangle.
Many confessed to having hundreds of the 15 cent reusable bags (photo) and not knowing what to do with them
Those who saw the method online were hugely impressed and said they couldn’t wait to try it for themselves:
“Thanks for this trick, I put about 10,000 of those bags in my drawer,” one user wrote.
“My whole life has been wasted so far,” added another commentator.

But this is not the only approach you can take with your plastic bags; others said they were fans of the ‘roll and dispense’ method (pictured in action)
This is not the first time that a shopper has found a new way to fold and store bags to save space.
Last year, a frustrated mom asked people online for help storing her own overflowing selection of shopping bags, and many came up with countless suggestions.
While some suggested a similar triangular method to that described above, others showed that they prefer the ‘roll and dose’ method, which involves taking a stack of plastic bags, flattening them and folding them lengthwise.
Then take a single bag, fold the handle and roll. Overlap another bag before you get to the end of the first.
Keep rolling and overlapping until you have a big roll. Place it in a container like a disused wet wipe dispenser and pull a bag out of the center.
Others were also fans of simply flattening the bags and storing them together in a stacked straight line under the sink to keep them looking neat (photo)
Finally, a mom suggested that you keep all your plastic bags in a $ 9 cross-body bag from Kmart and then store them in your handbag (Kmart cross-body bag shown)

Finally, a mom suggested keeping all of your plastic bags in a $ 9 crossbody bag from Kmart.
Then keep the crossbody bag in your handbag so you never run without plastic bags.
