I wanted my gift bags stored out of the way but easy to get to when needed.

A tension rod suspended between the 2 bookcases of my craft table seemed like the perfect solution.

I added the hooks to the rod so the bags could be easily removed.

I can just open the hook and take off the bag I need. I love a simple solution!

I really want to do this – have lots of bags and get tired of riffling through them each time I want to get a gift together. What is the source for your hooks?

I got the hooks at Wal-Mart in the bathroom area. They were $2 for the package.

I noticed that the rod was bowed a bit with the weight of the bags. Since you have them on shower curtain hooks, you could a center support to the rod to give it more strength. Just a thought. Using the rod is a great idea.
