Maybe you’re okay with storing your paper towels on a stand-up roll dispenser set out on your kitchen counter. There’s certainly nothing wrong with that! Especially if paper towels are an everyday-use item and you have the space, it’s nice to have them out in the open where you can see them and easily grab a sheet. But for every person who has the space for a stand-up dispenser, there’s someone else who doesn’t — as in, me.

For folks who’d prefer to store paper towels a bit more out of the way, this $13 under-shelf dispenser is inexpensive and super easy to install.

If the “self-adhesive” part didn’t give it away, the Dr Catch Self-Adhesive Paper Towel Holder has a strong adhesive strip that Amazon reviewers say adheres really well to various surfaces and is perfect for renters. Just choose where you want to put it, peel, and stick. Or you can also mount the paper towel holder in a more permanent way with the accompanying hardware. That could be under or on the side of a cabinet, or even inside your pantry.

Because this paper towel holder takes advantage of areas that are otherwise unused, it takes up no additional space in your kitchen. In fact, it might actually add space to your current setup by (finally) getting your paper towels off the counter.
