So i buy the huge bags as they are supercheap, but they are just so vast.

Usually in my stomach... Crisps don't last long enough to go on a container here blush

We have an understairs cupboard in the kitchen so can just put the large bag on floor but normally I buy the 6 pack which goes into a pull out food cupboard.

Mine usually live in my car boot otherwise ds (16) has a tendency to eat the lot!!

in a cupboard you find the cheese and onion lurking sadly at the back past their sell by date

We have one of those plastic stacking crates that fits on the top shelf of a kitchen cupboard. All multi-packs get opened into it.

I have a small cotton bag (one of those you get from supermakets - I think this one was is a small Holland and Barrett one) and it hangs from the back of the store cupboard door. I only buy 6 packs but can easily fit those and DD's crisps in there

In my poncey Nigella bread bin. It fits 36 packets.

In an ikea plastic bag holder on the wall in the top of the cellar

In the bottom drawer, also known as the treats drawer or the "something interesting" drawer.

i get massive multi-packs which live on top of the kitchen cupboard.

if we have a gaint bag instead i use a lakelakd klippet and keep them in the snack cupboard

DoraJarr Sun 10-Jul-11 17:43:55

Lol at 36!!

DoraJarr Sun 10-Jul-11 17:44:29

Do they not get crushed in the ikea bag dispenser ?

DoraJarr Sun 10-Jul-11 17:45:09

Our cupboards go to the roof

In a box on top of the fridge, but our fridge is hidden in a cubbyhole hole so they're not visible.

My friend has a big plastic box for them and her husband insists on them being arranged by flavour. She had a bit of a dilemma when she bought a different brand so the colour of the packets were different...she wasn't sure whether to put them with the right flavour but wrong colour or right colour and wrong flavour grin

I use a standard fitting for a larder unit that is a wire, pull-out drawer. It was designed for vegetables but works a treat for crisps.

similar to tenth item down here

I have a huge plastic lidded box on top of the kitchen cupboards. I would prefer to have them stored out the way though.

In the crisp cupboard! Having moved from a flat with only 2 bottom cupboards in the entire kitchen to a new flat with 5 bottom cupboards we now have a saucepan cupboard, a cleaning cupboard, a laundry cupboard, a tupperware cupboard and a crisp cupboard!

I find that if you stamp on them they take up a lot less space.

Ours are in a basket in a cupboard
