DIY Canned Food Organizers

Kitchen 4 days ago
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!

    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.

    This is AWESOME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! While I don't buy "canned" anything, this would be amazingly helpful to use for my home canned things from the garden!!!! I'm gonna do this!!!! Thanks SOOO much for sharing this amazingly awesome idea!!!!!

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

      Jeannie DeNio I agree! I only store anything I've canned standing up. I've even seen an add for an electric pressure cooker on TV that shows someone laying a large mason jar in

    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?

    I'm looking for ideas for storing jarred canned goods from the garden. Does anyone have a suggestion?
  • Sean Satterfield Johnson
    What are the containers holding the cans. Homemade or can I buy them somewhere?

    I like this, but it also seems like it takes up more space with the cans laying on the sides like that instead of standing upright. Are there anymore ideas?

    I think it looks cool also, but I don't buy that much of any one thing. You must be a COSTCO shopper :)

      Susan Weistling Croley Gardner Some canned goods are so multipurpose that I buy them only by the case: eg, tomato soup can extend pasta sauce, beef or vegetable soups, chili & stew. Saves me from alot of impulse grocery shopping, too!

    This is far better than most organizing posts, IMHO, because you didn't just reduce the number of items in your pantry to make it prettier, you actually made way for MORE stuff attractively!
