Exciting New Shelving Solution!

It seems like organization and rotation seems to be at the top of many people’s lists of things they want to work on with their food storage this year. On our BabyStep One page we have a diagram and instructions for how to make your own can rotating rack.
problem
While the do-it-yourself solution has worked great for some people, there are others (*ahem* Julie *ahem*) who don’t have the patience (or willing husbands) to make the shelves on their own.

One of our readers referred us to a new product called the CanOrganizer which is basically an easy and cheap way to make these shelves on your own. We immediately contacted the company and got some of their products to try. We were so impressed with them that we decided to become affiliates and offer them on our website for those of you who like to do things the EASY way.

We know you will love these shelves as much as we do. The CanOrganizers are going to be playing a large role in our Food Storage Makeover project so stay tuned for more excitement and pictures of the shelves in action!

    Do they have a store you can buy them at if you live in Utah??

    • They ship from Utah so maybe you could pick them up directly from them. I haven’t seen them in any stores yet though.

    Though the shipping is high, I consider it well worth it when you compare how inexpensive the Can Organizers are to other options.  My husband and I have just organized our storage room with these on free-standing shelves (the heavy duty ones made of metal you get at Lowes/Home Depot)  My shelves are 12″ deep, 18″ inches, and 24″.  The four sizes of Organizers really came in handy.  One of the comments on their site mentioned using duct tape like a belt, going around the Organizer in a couple of places.  I am considering this on my larger Organizers since cans are so heavy.  All in all, a fabulous and inexpensive product I have recommended freely!

    I just ordered 5 units. If you order 5 at a time, you get a code to use for 10% off. When you input the code, it must be in capital letters or it won’t go thru. The shipping is extremely high….almost $15 and I am located in the same state (Utah) with about a 6 hour driving time. That’s high shipping costs! Don’t forget on this website there is a tutorial on making your own rotating can system out of cardboard. I haven’t tried it yet but I’m going to ask my husband to make them for me for Valentine’s Day.

    Hi girls, This is Dr Lambird again, I finally got one of these put together, but had to go to their website and figure it out from the diagram, It is NOT intuitive, there are NO printed instructions accompanying the product. nor are instructions printed on the units themselves ( why not?). If your subscribers try to put the larger units together from the demo on YouTube, they will not likely be able to …the shape of the cardboard is completely different, This will likely be a good value, but it looks like they cut corners on customer support which has already caused me great consternation, and extreme reluctance to try other products they offer or plan to offer. Your diagram and husbands directions were vastly better than theirs!
    I don’t want to hurt their business, just want to give other consumers a “heads up!”

    Wow – the shipping is high! Ten dollars – it was like an extra dollar to order more however, I don't need that many and I have no one to split an order with. The shipping is definitely making me think twice in regards of whether I will get them or not.

  • sam12587

    These are perfect for my narrow cupboards. My homemade racks got destroyed in a fire so these will work great for now (I don't have time to make new ones as we are still doing repairs). What I really like is that it looks like when I do get the metal ones I want made, I can easily move these card board ones to a closet or under a table/bed for additional storage.
    It looks like a couple of these pantry sized ones will tuck back in to one of the blind corner cupboards great!

    Shipping is high but, if it helps me get my new cupboards organized faster then I'm for it & it looks like a couple of these pantry sized ones will tuck back in to one of the blind corner cupboards great!

    Do you happen to know where this company is located?

    • They are in Utah.

    • Pietowngirl

      They are located in Sandy, Utah. I am located in Kanab and shipping was still extremely high. They offer a discount if you order 5 units at a time so I got almost $5 off the total order which made my shipping for 5 units STILL a whopping $8 and I am only a driving distance of about 6 hours.

    These can shelf things are so great! A little hard to put together at first but by the second one you get it. Bing Bang Bop! and I have a beautiful pantry that rotates all my cans. Don’t let the shipping stop you. The more I ordered at one time, the cheaper it got. Get together with a friend and order. I just love them. Thanks for the tip Jodi and Julie. Karen

    I checked into ordering some of these. Even with a 10% discount the shipping charges were an additional 1/3 of the order cost. I’ll have to live with what currently works for me.

    I noticed there seemed to be a lot of cardboard being discarded. I would suggest using those discards to make buddy burners. Here’s the URL to a YouTube video showing you how to make one:

    I have enjoyed learning about food storage through your site and am excited to see the results of the pantry make over.

    One thing I have question about it is, how to handle extreme temperatures in the car kits/72 hour kits? Here it can get to be 100 degree is in the summer and below freezing in the winter. Won’t that damage the kits pretty quickly? Do you have any tips for that?

    Thanks again!

    Growing up my parents built their own shelving unit for cans, not as functional to move around (cause it couldn’t be moved!) but it worked just the same. I like these can organizers but I am in Canada and I haven’t found another company that makes them here.

    My husband was delivering some product to a business and they were throwing away a shelf that once held the chocolate bars on them. The shelves are slanted and works great for cans too! He took it home and it works great!

    Just thought I would share.

  • I did it! I made one with 2 pop can boxes stacked on top of each other, and 3 pieces of cardboard for durability. 😛

    Yay!!! I have Julie’s problem too! I am so getting these ASAP! Thanks for the great post!

    Oh my goodness, I am so glad that you found these! There is a video on how to make them, but even I can’t find time to do that, and my hubby did help me make the under bed storage, he just doesn’t have time to do much and I am no longer strong enough to do it on my own. I will order some of these this weekend when we get paid! If you want I can let you know how the work.

  • Their phone number has a Utah area code. I think they would work well in my storage area as well as in my pantry. I really like this product.

    WOW! These are amazing! I need some. My husband and I just found your website last week and are excited to start stocking up on our food storage. Any chance this company will let you do a giveaway for a few of their products? That would be fun. Thanks for all your research and work to help others like me start from scratch.

  • I don't think pop can boxes would last very long and they wouldn't roll down into the bottom particularly well. Does anyone know what state this company is based in?

  • You could probably make your own using 2 pop can boxes stacked on top of each other and cut a hole for the cans to drop down into the bottom box.
