DIY Canned Food Organizers

With a family of 7 to feed, my canned food stash was going a bit crazy. I designed and built wood organizers that rotate the oldest dates out first. I also built 2 different sizes. This one will hold up to 12 cans... Woohoo! The others will hold up to 7 and are stackable. This is the best thing to happen to my pantry in a long time! Plus... They cost under $5 a piece to build! You can see the full set of easy plans with lots of photos and tips at http://www.shanty-2-chic.com/2012/10/pantry-...

    I love this idea. I watch the codes on all food and make sure the oldest gets used first. This would make things so much easier and so much more organized.
  • Excellent!

    I also have family of 7 and would have loved this! Such organization. So neat. My kids are all grown now and my now ex, didn't believe in stocking up. But I love it.
