We have a plastic unit made for storing bags hanging in our basement stairwell but it is not near the cat's litter box. Using a Kleenex box is a great idea for that!

I use an empty Dr Pepper (or any soft drink) 12 pk carton to store mine.  The little opening at the top where you open the carton so it can be used as a dispenser is the perfect size to stuff grocery bags into and it holds a ton of them.  I just spray painted it to make it look a little prettier and it fits nicely under my kitchen sink.  ~ Wen

I used junegem13's idea for rolling up plastic bags and it works really well. It freed up a lot of space in my cabinet.

Another way to store plastic bags is to take the center tube from paper towels and stuff them into it. they store great. and dont take up much room..

My GIL 'reduces' the size of her bags prior to storing- so they take up less space.  She takes the bag (like white thank you grocery, kmart, walmart etc bags) and pulls them into a long strip, then wraps it around her finger and then pulls the end kinda through the loop where her finger was to kinda tie it off.  Hope the 'directions' make sense.  I thought it clever.

That's a great idea...I took an empty gallon water jug, cut a hole in the front and stuff them in there, sits nicely under my sink and I keep one by the kitty box too.  I like the kleenex box too!  Very cool!

Great idea. I'll be using the Kleenex box idea soon!

Great way to store grocery bags.

I found a great way to store grocery bags.  I use left over kleenex or puff boxes and stuff full of bags.   They can then be stored anywhere.   Throw one in the trunk of your vehicle and you will always have a bag when you need one.   I go to sams club and can grab the bags easily to get groceries into the house.    I need a bag there it is.   Never know when you need to put a dirty pair of shoes in a bag or dirty clothes or what ever you need one for it is there.   Another great container is a plastic potato chip container like pringles or lays stax.   Keeps the bags organized and easy to find when you need one.
