Shelf Reliance Cansolidator Pantry Review and Giveaway



I think I’ve touched on this a couple of times but I like to keep my home tidy and organized but being so busy and having a 2 ½ year old it’s tough to keep everything as clean and organized as I would like and my most problematic area is by far my pantry with all my can goods, other side dishes and snacks! So while looking for a new organizational system to help with my chaotic pantry I stumbled upon Shelf Reliance and when I was offered a chance to review their Cansolidator Pantry I was so excited and had high hopes that this would answer my cluttered pantry’s prayers!

My Thoughts:

 
I was sent a Cansolidator Pantry from Shelf Reliance to review and the shipping time was very quickly and once it arrived I couldn’t wait to get started working on our pantry to get it more organized and usable.

The first thing I had to do was put the Cansolidator together but it really was a quick and easy process and I was going through my canned goods in no time organizing them in the Cansolidator and in no time my pantry was so much more organized and so much easier to find all the sides and can goods I need for my family’s dinners. I love that you can adjust the sizes of the slots so that no matter what the can size you will have a place to store it where it’s easy to find and grab.

I am thinking about purchasing a couple more of these Cansolidators to put in my pantry so I can have more space and hold more canned foods so I don’t have to run to the store all the time when I don’t have a specific canned food, since I can now organize them and store them where I can see what I have and what I need to pick up on the next trip to the grocery store! I’ve also noticed since putting the Cansolidator in our pantry it’s stayed much more organized and tidy since we don’t have to dig everything out to find one can of food.

I really wish I would have taken a before and after photo to share with you so that you could see how much more room and storage space that the Cansolidator gave us in our pantry and I really recommend if you have limited cabinet and pantry space like we do to pick up one of these awesome organizers so that you too can save space and be more organized.
