While remodeling our kitchen, I realized that I didn't have shelving to hold all the manufactured prepackaged storage bag boxes. So, I decided to stand all the food storage boxes on their side to save space and to allow me to grab what I needed without having to slide out the other boxes. I installed a pull out drawer to hold all of them in the cabinet and added the food storage boxes, like aluminum foil, wax paper, parchment paper, and storage bags.
Here is how I made the Food Storage Bag Holder. It's quite easy and can be done in one hour with very little material.
Here are the supplies needed to make this DIY Food Storage Bag Holder.
1 - 4 inch PVC Pipe 10 inches long
Decorative Con-Tact Paper
Here are the tools:
1 Sharp Marker
Step 1: Buy 4 inch PVC pipe 10 inches long.
Step 2: Cut the PVC pipe in half (5-inch sections) with a hacksaw. This is half of the height of the gallon bags length and holds it up nicely.
Step 3: Clean up the edges with an emery paper. I added the Con-Tact Paper to the inside and outside of the PVC pipe. And using a black Sharpie marker, I colored the top and bottom of the PVC pipe.
That's it. And, here is the final product in its home. I didn't affix it to the drawer but you could.
The cost was very inexpensive. We had all the supplies and tools on hand. To give you an example of how affordable this project is, the cost of a 10 ft 4-inch PVC pipe, it is $9.00.
If you don't use storage bags, you can use this for other things in the kitchen or other areas in the home, like cooking utensils. I hope this inspires you to think outside the box when it comes to organizing products in the home.
If you use storage bags, how do you store them? Do you leave them in the container? Have you created any organizing projects in your kitchen that you would like to share? Feel free to leave a comment below. I would love to hear from you.
