Win-It Wednesday: Shelf Reliance Cansolidator Pantry (4 Winners!)

by Tara Kuczykowski on June 2, 2010 · 642 comments

Join me every week for Win-It Wednesday. I’ll be posting 24-hour giveaways at 8 a.m., 2 p.m. and 7 p.m. ET to give you plenty of chances to win!


One of the most common questions I get about stockpiling is, "How do you manage your stockpile?" Frankly, this is something I still struggle with. My kitchen pantry is relatively small -- certainly not large enough to house a stockpile that will sustain a family of seven. We have additional shelving, as well as an extra refrigerator and deep freezer in the garage, but I'll admit that it's difficult at best to keep tabs on everything.

So when Tiffany from Shelf Reliance asked if I'd be interested in trying one of their Cansolidator Pantry shelf units I jumped at the chance. Not only does it save space, but it also automatically rotates your stockpile, ensuring that products are used in the order of expiration. Furthermore, it alleviates the sometimes dangerous practice of stacking cans on top of each other. Have I ever told you about the time my husband dropped a can of peas on my bare pinky toe? Well, let's just say it was not a pretty sight...

Now I just need to pick up a few more Cansolidator units to finish organizing. Luckily Tiffany has a great deal for us:

This week only, Tiffany is offering Deal Seeking Mom readers an exclusive 52% discount on the Cansolidator Pantry. Enter coupon code Save1 at checkout, which will bring the price per unit down to $21.49!

Four lucky Deal Seeking Mom readers will each win a Shelf Reliance Cansolidator Pantry that holds up to 40 cans!

The hardest part of keeping our pantry organized is bags!

The hardest part about keeping my panty clean is organization. It starts out organized but once I start searching for that infamous last can of corn or green beans that I know I stashed away somewhere only to learn that either I or my hubby already used it or it never left the store. Another problem is our pantry is also used to store other household items such as vaccuum cleaner, commercial mop bucket, pots and pans, microwable containers, etc. Finding a can good is sometimes like looking for a needle in a haystack.

My pantry is small but deep and I forget what's in the back.

5 Paula June 3, 2010 at 10:41 am

I don't have a lot of room to begin with so once you start stockpilling....it gets really hard to keep everything in order.

bags are the most difficult - there just seems to be no good way to "stack" them (they are always falling out when I open the pantry door :)

11 Heather June 3, 2010 at 10:55 am

Kids are my obstacle to organizing in any room but especially my pantry!

12 Jessica-MomForHim June 3, 2010 at 10:57 am

it's just hard to keep things organized so I know what I have on hand. this would help.

13 Robin Duke June 3, 2010 at 10:57 am

My pantry can look like a disaster only days after 're-organizing'! Cans are definitely a problem, but other storage products (plastic storage containers, bags of rice or pasta, etc.) can be a hassle, too.

20 tiffany June 3, 2010 at 11:00 am

My biggest problem is bags of chips, etc. I can't find a neat way to store all the bags of things, it's so frusterating!

21 Elisabeth June 3, 2010 at 11:09 am

What is the hardest part about keeping your pantry clean?
Keeping it organized! Things get piled up on top of each other and I lose track of what I have in there. It gets to be a crazy mess and I repurchase things I already have without realizing it.

22 Shannon Pence June 3, 2010 at 11:09 am

Our pantry is hidden behind the coats in our coat closet (yes, not a very good design), so it is really hard to get back there to pull things out. I've almost lost a toe multiple times from cascading cans.

Our biggest problem right now is bags as well! Ugh, they are so annoying I almost want to stop buying things in bags! lol

The hardest part of keeping my pantry clean is getting my family to put things back after they've used it. They never seem to put it back where I had it.

Half empty boxes are everywhere. And nothing is ever the same size! I have very messy cupboards.

My pantry is small so i have to be very on top of things to keep it organized. usually what happens is other people go in there searching for snacks and moving things all over and the next time i look in i realize its a mess!

I can't see the cans at the back of my pantry. I love the idea of using the oldest stuff first.

34 Jen June 3, 2010 at 11:37 am

The hardest part of the pantry, for me, is rotation, which this tool will solve. You clean your pantry and stack everything so neat and then you add to it -- usually in the front -- and before you know it the things in the 'back' are expired. I would love to have one of these tools. I don't buy a lot of bagged stuff, only because I don't know how to organize it. Therefore, I stick with stockpiling mostly cans and boxes and only buying enough bags for 1-2 weeks.

35 Auna June 3, 2010 at 11:38 am

I just remodeled my kitchen and have found that I need a better way to organize my canned goods. This would be awesome!

The hardest part of keeping our pantry clean is the small space that we have to work with.

38 Linda June 3, 2010 at 11:40 am

The hardest part is keeping things organized so you use them before they expire. I frequently find things that have gotten shuffled around and are expired when I go to use them.

I think the hardest part is organizing everything with an even weight distribution. Since I've started stockpiling I have a lot more in the pantry and I'm not sure how much the shelves will hold! So far so good...

43 Lena Dimmick June 3, 2010 at 11:55 am

I subscribe to email. I have very little storage space, only a few shelves that I stack cans on. It doesn't work well, especially with toddlers getting into them.

The hardes part of keeping my pantry clean, is having different size boxes and containers...cuz we buy what is free/cheap, we aren't brand loyal. Therefore, the pantry always looks disorganized to me.

I have a large pantry but.....that makes it more difficult to rotate stock and clean.

50 Terri June 3, 2010 at 12:09 pm

I actually have an old fashioned "fruit room" so it is pretty big. I just went through the shelves and organized, and I think my biggest issues are stacking and rotating. Thank you for doing this.
