A clever way to maximise storage space for carrier bags.

If you, like us, insist on lugging carrier bags all over Europe, you will no doubt need a storage solution for them. Enter the silver finished carrier bag holder. I have tried just shoving bag in a cupboard or in a drawer, but they have a tendency to unravel themselves, no matter how much you scrunch them. The neatest solution is the silver finish carrier bag holder as seen in the ‘photo.

I have in the past made use of a plastic finish carrier bag holder – one type was not very robust and the other was too deep to fit inside a cupboard. This silver effect one ticks all the boxes and is held in place by just four screws. NOTE – the four screws supplied were longer than the thickness of the cupboard door, so do check this carefully before making holes in your woodwork! You may need to delve into your tool box for a few shorter length screws.

To screw or use sticky pads on your carrier bag holder?

Some bag holders come with double-sided sticky back pads. However, I have found that these fall off over time, possibly due to the motion of the motorhome or even just warmer weather conditions. Consequently the screw option is preferred.

Carrier bag holder fits nearly inside a cupboard

When fitting the carrier bag holder, it may be a wise idea to use sticky tape to fasten the holder to the cupboard door, and then have a “practice run” at closing the door, before screwing into the woodwork. This will ensure the holder is correctly positioned and will not bash against shelves or even prevent the door from closing etc.

Carrier bag holders seem to vary in price a lot – in a motorhome accessory shop, they cost twice the price elsewhere! Shop around. The ones above were from Amazon, with free delivery.
