O.k. so I just had to share. The first of this year I set a very lofty goal – to organize some part of my house every day until I had worked my way through the whole house – I started the year off great by organizing my office desk and that’s where it stopped! So much for New Year’s resolutions. Well, I’ve revised the goal to organize one part of my house each month. So this month it was my pantry in the garage.
I have a very small pantry in my kitchen so I store alot of my canned goods in the garage. Now you may look at the photo and think – it looks pretty good to me. Well it looked good with it’s rows of matching white baskets but it was not very functional or effective. I never really knew how many cans I had or of what and it was impossible to make sure I rotated the cans. In fact when I was cleaning it out I found 6 cans of mandarin oranges from 2001 that were BULGING and a found two huge containers of sesame seeds, probably a lifetime supply! Yikes!
So during a trip to Costco this week I discovered the Cansolidator! It is an amazing little device that not only keeps your cans organized but it rotates them automatically for you. It is so cool! No more bulging cans for me. I bought four of them and now not only does my pantry shelf look good – it’s functional too! I kept a few of the baskets to hold oversized cans and other bottles that don’t fit into the Cansolidator. Isn’t it pretty!
