I realize aluminium (like other metals) is expensive, I was just surprised at the price. We recycle all of our aluminium--having a forge and a cupela (sp) and a machine shop, well, metal is valuable to us.

You made me go look in my pantry with your last statement. I think I could hang rolls under my shelves. You may be able to too. I bet a 1/2'' galvanized flange,elbow,coupling and some pipe would work good.

I bought a box of aluminum foil sheets that are leafed -- like facial tissues -- for a better price per square foot than the rolled type at a restaurant supply place. But it's so often not the length I need that I end up using the rolls. I think buying the national brand heavy duty is worth the money for the quality difference from the store brand. And I pinch pennies 'til Mr. Lincoln hollers.

I got the big roll plastic wrap in a box once upon a time when I had more counter space. I really loved the little slider/cutter on the box.

I am quite thrifty, and buy store brands often, but have never seen a "heavy duty" store brand nearly as good and heavy as Reynolds, so I suck it up and buy that.

I am about ready to organize my baking/snack pantry in hopes of finding a place in there. I also have an equipment pantry (converted coat closet) and I'm thinking maybe room could be made in there. I have a tiny kitchen, but have been able to squeeze out a respectable amount of storage space. I just have to manage it a bit better.
