If you use bungee cords, you know how they want to tangle themselves into a Medusa-headed ball of thick, interlocking bands all S-hooked together. To get a handle on my collection, I purchased a 24-pocket shoe bag, made to hang on a door or wall, for my bungees. One bungee goes in each pocket; then I roll up the bag and store it in my truck. Now I don’t have to deal with tangled hooks and cords. I even set aside a pocket for red streamers for marking loads that stick out of the back of my truck’s bed or trailer.
