simplehuman Upright Bag Holder at Crate and Barrel

Despite our best intentions, we still end up with the odd plastic bag or two. And they do have a purpose—they're great for transporting wet swimsuits and the like. But they're hard to keep in order at home. We've seen solutions to this problem before...

...such as plastic bags stuffed full of other plastic bags tied in little knotted balls. IKEA's got a solution, too, the $2 Rationell Variera plastic bag holder, but it's hard to get just one bag out at a time. Neither solution is what we'd call elegant. We're thinking this $15 simplehuman contraption would be perfect for smaller bags, such as produce bags or reused Ziplocs you've washed and then dried (using your plastic bag drier, of course.)

It's made of polypropylene and stainless steel, so it should be durable and recyclable.
