Storage Tip ~ New Use for Empty Tissue Box

Have you ever opened your cabinet under the kitchen sink and seen this?
In order to get to the cleaning supplies, I need to wade through this jungle of plastic bags. I've had various plastic bag holders over the years, but they have either gotten left behind in a house or lost. Well, I started researching a way to wrangle the bags and saw this on Real Simple's site.
Take an empty tissue box and...
stuff it with your plastic bags to use at a later time. I think I was able to easily fit 10-12 bags. If you really crammed them in, I'm sure you could add even more.
I have some racks mounted inside my pantry door for baggies, aluminum foil and such. I placed my new plastic bag holder in the rack. The bags are totally accessible and I can even grab a bag one-handed, as it fits snugly in the rack.
The best part is I can actually get to the cleaning products now to use them and (ahem) to organize them too. We'll have to save that for another time. It's been one crazy busy day! Now, got any tips for organizing under the kitchen sink? I could use all the help I can get. ;-)
