Here is how I solved the endless "what can will I grab" from the food pantry. I cut strips of wood then placed in rows to hold my canned goods on the bottom shelf of my cabinet. I used a square of wood to hold them in place at the front of each row.This will work for any space I'm sure. I took this photo after Thanksgiving, obviously we'd hit the corn!

I was putting my cans in the pantry from a recent trip to the supermarket and decided to share this. For all who use canned beans of any sort, I'm sure you've had to deal with the beans on the bottom and juice/soup at the top. When you turn the can up to empty it, all the goodies are in the bottom.

I store mine upside down so that all the beans settle in the top of the can and the soup is in the bottom. When I open it, everything just jumps out into the sauce pan or wave dish. I don't have to scrape or put water in it to get everything out.

Right now, the cabinet fronts of the kitchen are coming off, I mean literally falling off! So I moved my food to the dresser where I keep my dishes for now. Not wanting to take them all out to find just one, I marked them on the top. This helped me and I hope it will help you.

Living in the South, it seems like dust will accumulate out of nowhere in no time at all, including inside my cabinets. No matter how diligent I am about dusting, before I can turn around, it's back!

I enjoy organizing and my most helpful tip I use in the kitchen. When I buy canned goods, I store them in the pantry in alphabetical order.

I have a drawer used for cans only in my kitchen cabinet. I took a permanent marker and labeled the top of each can. Now when I roll the drawer open, I can see what's stored in a glance.

I like to can fruits and vegetables, but my basement is heated and a cool dry place is needed to store home canned products. So I bought a used refrigerator and put in my basement just for canned goods. It keeps them cool and dry.

The first tip I can give you is don't buy a Dollar Tree spice step shelf and think it would work for cans. Not until 8 of 9 cans fell off it and onto my feet, did I realize if this was to be useful, I had to modify it.

I recently found a cool little product in a catalog that helped your "unstackable" can fit inside a "topsy turvy" can stacker. They weren't much but when you are watching every penny even $6.00 plus S+H is something to avoid especially when you can make them yourself.
