$1 Can Food Organization

I spied these nifty little wire baskets at the dollar store, grabbed a large and small can and they fit perfectly
Feeding a family of 5 gets pricey so when something goes on sale I stock up which means a pretty full pantry. I spied these nifty little wire baskets at the dollar store, grabbed a large and small can and they fit! I have seen all sorts of amazing DIY canned food storage ideas but really, who am I kidding, these baskets will do the trick!
Labeling the baskets seemed like the best idea so I know exactly what I have on hand. The labels came from Online Labels and they have a label designer program which makes creating and printing super easy!

    These always look like such a good idea, but - how do you see the cans on the back or in the bottom? How much work is it to remove one of those cans?

      I only use one product per basket or box. The new ones are underneath and the older ones on top. Quality control is done! I used to work in a store so this is second nature with me. hahahaha

    Can you do this with pressure canned goods? Canning my own vegetables and meat is our way preserving what we grow.

    Nice, I loved the idea. I always try these DIY from left over jars from my work place SITARA FOODS which makes wood fired naturally home made ulavacharu , and various Veg and Non Veg pickles, SITARA is the India's biggest online store for pickles
