I can fully stuff my freezer shelves AND avoid things falling out when I open the door by crisscrossing bungee cord straps between the shelves.

Tired of having my pant legs dragging under my feet and not expecting my tummy to shrink anytime soon, I was desperately seeking to buy simple suspenders. I decided to try using a pack of bungee cords from the Dollar store. It works. I got so fond of 'em, I finally tied the hooks together permanently! The only downside is that these square-ish plastic hooks are uncomfortable pressing against your body in some places, such as between your back and a chair.


Also the one up on the shoulder feels much better on top of a shirt!

If you don't tie them together (to make a longer strap) then throwing it over your shoulder will often cause the hooks to separate. One strap might fall down on the floor or come apart beneath a garment. An even better Idea would be to find a longer single bungee cord set.

I have many canning jars and rings, and I keep them stored on a chrome shelf in our garage. The rings would fall all over the place until I got the idea to use one of my husband's bungee cords.
