Grocery bag holders are perfect to corral plastic grocery sacks. I have made several and have yet to devise a way to keep the bag holder from falling off its designated kitchen hook when stuffing it full of plastic bags after a shopping trip. Perhaps its hanger may best be a length of elastic and not fabric. Easy sewing project.

This is exactly what I need! Every time I open my cabinet, several plastic bags fall out. This is a much better idea.

The cabinet under my sink is so cluttered with plastic bags this would be such a nice organizer to have! It would be much easier than rummaging around for a bag and having a million others fall out in the process.
