My van is always getting cluttered with little gum wrappers, flossers, and other bits of trash. There really isn’t a place to put a small trash can and a small trash bag would just get mixed in with the rest of the trash. I came up with this clip-on trash bag made from resealable snack bags. It’s super easy to make!
Supplies: Plastic or Mylar lined reseable snack bag (21 & 8 oz shown above), a metal O ring that can open, and a metal clip with a hole in it.
I folded the zip-seal toward the inside of the bag and glued it down with a hot glue gun. This holds the bag open a little bit and it provide reinforcement so the O ring doesn’t pull through. I punched a small hole in the middle back of the bag right below the zip-seal. Slip the clip onto the O ring and then push the O ring through the hole. Snap it closed and you have your little trash container.
Clip it on your car vent for handy access! I thought I would want to use the nut bag below in my van because it’s bigger, but the animal cracker bag isn’t that much smaller and it’s super cute!! Get a resealable bag of your favorite snack for your car!
