Be careful when drilling holes in the wood, as we don't know exactly what is behind there.

Doug always went to shorter screws than anything came with, to be sure penetration was not quite the depth of the wood.

The little dispenser paddles are silicone, which makes for a very clean and leak resistant seal at the base, also the small caps for the bottom finish the seal job.

Looking at these, I have decided I will take the canisters off while driving, and just lay them on the seat beneath, lest any serious sway or torquing that can occur getting in and out of gas stations, etc., throw one loose.

Seems the sensible thing to do.

I've been looking for something exactly like this to organize mix packets in the kitchen and seed packets in the garage. I can't find them on the Container Store site or anywhere else for that matter. Anybody know where to find them?

I've been looking for some more of these for quite some time, but haven't been able to find them, either.

It's the Packet Pockets we haven't been able to find, but thank you!

Last night at Lowe's I saw these and they're the perfect substitute for the Packet Pockets mentioned earlier. The Command Shower Caddy is part of the Command line of products, which means that putting them up won't require screws and they won't damage the walls of your RV. And if you get tired of them, you can remove them without a problem. Here's a link to their page on the Command website:
http://www.command.com/3M/en_US/comm...4545597&rt=rud

There are also other Command Caddies that are different sizes. They're shown on this page:
http://www.command.com/3M/en_US/comm...+8719411&rt=r3

If you can't find them locally, you might be able to order them from the Lowe's web site.

Thanks for sharing those!

One thing about the cabinet door caddy....things may jump out of there in transit.

Personally, I would not put heavy things in a caddy on a door like that, as I don't believe they would stay enroute.

If your cabinets are wood or aluminum sided, maybe mount them along the base, attached to the sides.

I have cleaning supplies in a couple of soft sided, locker organizer caddies, under my sink.

I also have some things in large, suction cup shower caddies in my bathroom....heavier things actually in one of these resting on the raised floor to the side of the toilet. The suction cups keep it in place, it is supported by the floor area.

My thoughts, for what they are worth.

In my sticks and bricks home, I've used the Command heavy-duty picture hanging strips to stick things to the walls and cabinet doors. After spending a couple of hours looking for my wallet, I attached a small plastic box to the inside door of my dresser. Now my wallet has a home and hopefully, it won't wander off someplace on its own. I also now have a hook on the inside dresser door for my keys, which also have a habit of disappearing only when I need them.

I agree that storing heavy bottles and things in a caddy enroute could cause a problem, but for lightweight things or in a kitchen that doesn't move, they're ideal.

P.S. Amazon also carries the Command line of products.

I picked up a couple of pretty, expanding file folders....the sleeve kind, with sides closed....and attached them with double stick tape to the inside of one of the kitchen base cabinets.

In one are cleaning rags, microfiber cloths in the other.

You could put all manner of lightweight things in these.

Vertical space...used.

Zevro Wall Mount Canisters

After checking mine to be sure they were securely attached, I ran some errands in town this morning and they didn't budge.

The arms which hold the canisters have a little snap button on each side to hold them in place, and they seem to do so very well.

For a day of driving, which could bring anything , or roads I knew could create a lot of sway and torquing of the vehicle, I would definitely take them down. I just wouldn't want to chance several cups of oatmeal all over the rear.

But....for your basic city roads, they seem to be secure enough.

I have a mental image of my dog scarfing oatmeal as fast she possibly could.

I forgot to remove my canisters before heading out yesterday, so after I realized I hadn't and they were riding well...I just left them up.

In and out of Publix, a stop for diesel fuel, over several speed bumps and settled into a new campsite about 4 hours later....no problems whatsoever.

This recipe was in a Mother Earth Newsletter earlier this week...which I made up, have now used, and it works great!

This would work for men or women, is incredibly inexpensive, and easily replenished on the road without the purchase price or space use of a tube of commercial shave cream....which especially for women seem to be large.

You can buy Aloe Vera Gel in the drugstores, or at WalMart, Target, etc., in their sunscreen sections.

I mixed this right in in a 3-4 ounce travel tube I had with me.


Shave Cream

2 parts Aloe Vera Gel
1 part olive oil
a few drops of essential oil of your choice...I used lavender

Shake well.
