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!

      Linda I'd worry about the seals on home canned goods popping as the bottles are jarred when the front one is removed...

    I love it! You realize that the US GOV says that if you have more than a weeks worth of food.. you should be considered a terrorist right?
