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!

The hardest part about keeping my panty clean is when stacked cans fall over.

2 Sonia June 3, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Hi DSM! The hardest part of keeping the pantry clean is the lack of space definitely. I try stacking the cans to no avail and they end up falling out onto my t
ootsies. You always find the best solutions to things!

3 Katherine June 3, 2010 at 12:18 pm

Just organizing everything like stacks of cans.

4 Misty June 3, 2010 at 12:26 pm

The hardest part of keeping the pantry clean is the kids getting in there, grabbing snacks and knocking everything over and shuffling it all around. And not throwing away the empty boxes or putting bags of chips with only crumbs back in it! Horrible!

I need more pantry shelves in order to make all items accessible. This rack would definetly help with that

7 Patricia June 3, 2010 at 12:42 pm

The hardest part is forgetting about stuff and then "discovering" it again....all the while wondering if it's past expiration. The best is when we think we don't have something but we really do, and we don't find out until we are restocking the shelves...

8 Amber June 3, 2010 at 12:47 pm

definitely cans

Stacking cans. They always fall over.

11 Crystal June 3, 2010 at 12:59 pm

the hardest part of keeping the pantry clean is trying to keep my 15 month old out of it she loves to go and take everything off the shelves and throw it on the ground

My toddler! She loves to play in there, and I never know what she is going to "rearrange" for me!

16 Carrie June 3, 2010 at 1:16 pm

For me, the hardest part is I don't have enough space. My five person family lives in a less than 800' cottage, and we only have two wall-mounted cabinets in our kitchen; definitely not enough space. I have set up a wire rack to keep a small stockpile on, and the kids knocking things to get to other things is definitely high on my list of things that make staying organized difficult.

18 Melissa Wolchok June 3, 2010 at 1:21 pm

The hardest thing about keeping my pantry organized is the fact that no one ever puts stuff back where they found it. They grab something (like a box of fruit snack), grab the little bag out of the box and just shove the box back where ever they find a spot. Drives me nuts, I can't ever find what I need, when I need it!

19 Megan June 3, 2010 at 1:29 pm

The hardest part about keeping my pantry organized is that it is so small.

The hardest part is having everyone else in the family use 'my' method to keeping things organized!!

24 Elaine June 3, 2010 at 1:59 pm

The hardest part is finding the space to store everything and have it easily accessible instead of having to move a lot of items to get to that one thing you need.

25 Britney June 3, 2010 at 2:26 pm

stacking cans is the hardest part for me

26 dawn June 3, 2010 at 2:27 pm

stacking cans and lots of boxes (cereals, crackers, etc.) that are not the same size cause pantry problems for me. add to that bags of chips, noodles, etc. and its just a pantry nightmare.

We just moved into an old farm house & the basement is too damp for my stockpile....now I'm trying to figure out how to keep it in the kitchen without going insane...it's still a work in process. Before my gripe was all the odd shaped cans & the fact that some could stack (tomatoes & canned tuna) & some wouldn't (most fruit & Ro-tel tomatoes)

The hardest part for me is having to take things out that are already organized to put new stuff behind them so the things that expire the soonest are in front. Love that this does it for you!

The hardest part about keeping my pantry organized is the fact that it is relatively narrow, but really deep...it holds a lot, but everything is hidden. Getting some cans out of the way sure would help :)

My pantry has so many cans and so little space. Cans are all over the place and my husband doesn't put stuff back in the right spot. My two year old likes to take the broom and knock down his snacks. I need this so bad

36 Katie June 3, 2010 at 3:13 pm

pantry... organizing it so that things don't go out of date.

The hardest part for me is knowing what is in the pantry. I have to take all the stuff in front out just to see what's in the back. It's such a hassel.

40 Rhonda June 3, 2010 at 3:16 pm

I LOVE your site! You are SOOO very helpful to a new mom trying to balance our TIGHT budget. I do subscribe to your emails and "like" you on facebook, but I am not a twitter person otherwise I would do that too! I have bragged about your site so much that I have gotten many other followers for you - which is great except when we are fighting over the deals at Walgreens or CVS! LOL!

I would LOVE to win one of these units! How unbelievably wonderful it would be to actually SEE what I have in the pantry without unstacking and restacking! Oh and I can relate to the pinky toe incident! Yes mam - been there and done that! Sooo frustrating trying to find something in my pantry!

Thanks for your blog, your ideas, and your help in getting my budget under control! Keep on keeping on!

41 Nancy June 3, 2010 at 3:18 pm

Working full time, couponing, and then doing the actual shopping leaves little time to get things organized. The small area I have gets filled with bags during the week, until I can get down there and get things put away. I end up with bags of canned items, or empty bags, with no way to easily put things away, as I usually have to get dinner made etc. If there was an easy way to just load the shelves when I got home this would make my life easier and no doubt save me time, which I seem to have little of.

42 Amy Royer June 3, 2010 at 3:34 pm

OMG, I have been wanting to get these and just can not afford it. I have such a hard time keeping things straight in my little homemade pantry because it is accessible to the kids and they are constantly digging in it for snacks (which to them is a can of veggies)!

43 Amy Childs June 3, 2010 at 3:46 pm

Little space...

The hardest part is keeping my toddler out of it. She loves to discover things!

50 Valerie Rangel June 3, 2010 at 4:26 pm

space is my number one problem!
