Question Keeping Kitchen Stuff in Place

Wonder what everyone uses to keep the stuff in the refrigerator and cupboards in place when traveling? I have the rubbery grip shelf liner for between breakable plates.

I have seen the little plastic spring loaded bars for this purpose but don't want to spend the money on something that does not work well. Anyone use these? If not what do you use?

My wife and I use four white, spring tension bars in our fridge. Keeps items from falling front. Worth the relatively small expense.

Check in your dollar type stores to see if they sell the small spring tension curtain rods. Otherwise, I can tell you it IS worth the $ to get the ones sold in camping departments, might even check Wally World.

I also use nice rectangular plastic baskets to contain stuff. Heck, I'm not fussy, I even have a few cardboard boxes that I cut to "my" needed size and some duck tape, I'm good to go.

They are behind cabinet doors, so looks aren't as important as function. Plastic and cardboard also don't add a lot of weight.

Well, maybe I am a bit cheap

I also use the spring tension rods to contain things in the medicine cabinet, keep DVD's contained, you name it and I probably have spring tension rods on it or some type of basket for it.

OK, maybe we need to post "Show N Tell" photos of how we use stuff to contain the other stuff, HAHA. I might be out in Sunny tomorrow, will try to remember the camera.

Ditto on the cardboard boxes. I like that I can custom size them to fit the space. We don't use anything in the fridge and have never had a problem.

In January, my roommate mentioned how he would love to have a side table area next to his desk so he could move some stuff off his desk when he was working.

He literally cringed when I came back with a couple boxes from the cardboard bin, but I proceeded to make this for him. It lasted almost all semester, until he karate chopped it just because. He put some heavy books on it which caused the cardboard to weaken, so it wasn't as capable as it was earlier on.

I bored holes in the back of the drawers in my old MH (it rode worse then the camper) and used shock cords (bungy cords) to hold things in place spices, salt/pepper etc. kept them up right and in place.
