We've bought things from small to big there…cork trivets to coffee tables. The prices are awesome!! (this is not a paid endorsement either…I just love the store!! My husband, not so much. I think it's because we spent four hours there on our first trip. Scared him away forever. Lol)
One thing I pick up almost every time I go are these plastic bag dispensers. They are only $1.99 each. A little pain in the butt to snap together, but you can use them for so much!!
When you buy them, they are flat and you just have to curved them into shape and snap in the clips on the side.
I use them for plastic bags and lots more too…
I hang one on the wall going down into the basement to hold plastic shopping bags.
One tip…ball up one bag at a time when placing them in the dispenser. That way it's easier when you are pulling one bag out at a time.
My biggest tip is attaching 2 together…with you know what!!
My favorite zip ties.
Place 2 dispenser back to back and attach with 2 zip ties on the top…
and two zip ties on the bottom , through the inside holes where you would hang them on the wall.
When storing taller items in these containers, there is strength when two are attached…"there's safety in numbers". This works great when not hanging them on the wall.
Don't forget to trim the zip ties down.
Now you can store taller items without the bin tipping over.
Great for tall rolls of wrapping paper.
Other ideas for the single version…
Toilet paper holder. This will hold four rolls. Great to attach to the inside of your bathroom vanity door, under the sink or in the closet.
Great in the craft room too, for balls of yarn you have left over from many projects.
More ideas that I haven't tried yet…
- store old rags in garage
- maybe stack up spools of ribbon and dispense the end of the ribbon through one of the holes
- kid's toy balls or smaller balls for sports…baseballs, softballs, tennis balls
- might be great for a scrap fabric bin…might get wrinkled in there, but you could see the fabric.
If you have any ideas for the plastic bins…let us know!!
Thanks for stopping by,
