Giveaway & Review: Cansolidator Pantry from Shelf Reliance! (CLOSED)


I think you all know I love to stockpile. And hey, if you can get 30 cans of soup at the right price and you know you'll be able to use them - why not? For me though, (and I'm sure many of you go through this as well) - it's not always easy to follow the first in/first out rule. You know, when you buy those 30 cans of soup... Sure soup has a long shelf life, but you want to make sure you use the soup you buy first, first, and then use whatever additional soup you buy (0r whatever other product you're stockpiling) after you've gone through that first batch - right? And with some canned products, such as soup - it can be hard to rotate without a system, right? Well not anymore! :)

A few weeks ago, the wonderful people at Shelf Reliance sent me their Cansolidator Pantry to try out! The Cansolidator Pantry is a front loading food storage rotation system that holds up to 40 cans! This 11" x 20" storage unit is very sturdy and easily put together in about 10 minutes! The top and bottom horizontal pieces help to snap everything into place and keep sections even. The best part about it is it's entirely customizable - so you can have a whole line of small tomato paste cans or tuna fish while still accommodating over sized cans! With the Cansolidator Pantry I never have to worry about about taking from the front - I just load any new cans and they automatically are put in the right order. :) {Now if only I could find a system like this for all those boxes of cereal... ;) }

But let me go back - the Cansolidator is not only for stockpilers! I dare you to go look in your pantry right now. I guarantee you have at least 15 cans in there, and probably 10+ more. And with fall coming, I know you'll all be stocking up on soup! The Cansolidator will streamline your pantry (or cabinet) and make the most of your space - while helping you to have access to the cans that would normally get lost in the back! Now isn't it time you take control of your space?

Shelf Reliance is also the most trusted name in emergency preparedness! Their goal is to "help families prepare for whatever tomorrow may bring, so they feel confident if disaster strikes. We believe in educating people so you can become self-reliant."

The Cansolidator Cupboard is my favorite item. My pantry is rather narrow, and this would actually fit on the shelves. This looks like a really well designed system, thanks for sharing the link.
