Simple Cabinet Organization

Sure using baskets and papered boxes complete with fancy chalkboard labels is cute but does the food actually get eaten? I stick to a much simpler way of moving dry goods off my shelves.
Difficulty: Easy

    someone had warned me years ago not to put canned goods in an upper cabinet, they are too heavy. (I think their cabinet came down because of it?) Considering how many canned goods I have, I believe it! I have the same Anchor Hocking glass containers with the red lids. Love them.

    It's all in the installation. My house is new & the cabinets are in tact so I don't have anything to worry about but (as with anything) folks should consider their home's structure prior to making changes.

    I have never heard that about cans in upper cabinets. I'm not sure that a handful of cans could weigh more than the stacks of plates in my other upper cabinets. Also, where did you get the little in-door spice racks? I really like them and I've never sen that before.

    Thanks Steve. I've been installing cabinets in commercial kitchens for years and as long as you've got good support and carpentry fabrication you're good. I happened upon them at GoodWill actually. I'm guessing no one else knew what they were & that's why they were still there for the taking. I'll do some digging and see if I can find them.

    Thanks for the reply. It seems like a great solution for two very cluttered spice/flour/sugar/tea/misc. cabinets in my kitchen. I will have to hunt around.
