We had been keeping potatoes and onions in separate cabinets where they would get mixed in with other things and so to keep them out and mere accessible, Charlie put them in bags and hung them by the door into the kitchen. It was easy to get to them that way but it wasn't very attractive. I saw something on line that was similar to this so went to a hardware store, then to Marshall's and got the stuff shown here. I also got a metal can with a lid for dry cat food in the garage that I think mice are being attracted to.

It's dark out so I didn't get as good a picture as I will tomorrow but I wanted to share this now.

That is more 'out of the way' than the hanging baskets I've seen used for storing onions/garlic/etc.

Everything will be convenient, yet out of the way. Nice.

Looks super, Norm.

We had the same problem though mostly with onions (Brian's not a potato guy so if I have them on hand, I usually know it and am planning something with them). I have a large white wrought iron baker's rack holding primarily cookbooks in an alcove in my kitchen so I bought a really cool looking large "smiling face" terracotta pot on human-looking feet that holds a couple of net bags worth of yellow onions. I keep it on the floor in front of the baker's rack. It's been serving us well for more than a year now and the onions get to breathe so they don't rot very quickly, which is what I was looking for. Since the onions are visible, we tend to not run out very often now (I find it hard to cook anything without onions and garlic), which was also part of the plan.

Your getup looks really good and provides easier access than my "planter"...
