Abstract: A container for storing bags for re-use includes a substantially flat rear wall that extends in a lengthwise direction and can be mounted on a supporting surface by, for example, adhesive tape or screws. A pair of opposing side wall portions are joined with the rear wall, extend in the lengthwise direction, and have inward extending, opposing inner edges opposite the rear wall. A bottom portion is joined to the rear wall and to each of the side walls. The rear wall, the side walls, and the bottom portion define between them a convex interior of the container. Bags can be inserted into the interior of container through a top opening. A slit that is at least as wide as a predetermined minimum user wrist width extends lengthwise between the inner edges of the side walls over substantially the entire length of the container and into the interior of the container.
