    How do you adjust the size of the tension rod? Which department at Walmart do you find the small tension rod?

      With all the curtain rods. Should be close to the window blinds.

      You can get them at any Dollar Store too. id recommend measuring the space you are going to use it (them) for so you buy a rod that's not too big. To adjust them (loosen or tighten) you just hold one end and turn the other end. Great for dinner plate dividers too!

    I have been racking my brain to figure a way to organize my cookie sheets, pizza pans and cutting boards. They're all stacked on top of each other. What a mess. Luv this idea, genius. Thanx 😊
