FIFO Can storage racks

Postby prepared12212012 » Mon Jul 26, 2010 9:05 am

I have finally got my hubby on board with all my prepping activities and I want to captalize on the moment. I want to show him how organized my stored goods just can really be. I am looking at getting a couple free standing can storage racks. I want the First In First Out type (FIFO). I've looked at the ones made by Shelfrefliance. Does anyone have some from them? I am not thrilled about the plastic tracks. Does anyone have other suggestions? I definetely want free standing models (I have the space) and I need to fit a variety of can sizes, small, and 10# sized.
Thanks,
Prepared

Hey Prepared!! I just recently purchased some fifo thick cardboard boxes from thecanorganizer.com. They're very large and sturdy. Much cheaper than Shelf Reliance. They are individual boxes that need to be put on your own shelf. I'm quite pleased with them. I think they were $15.?? per 4-pack, plus shipping. I think that, if used carefully, the strong cardboard should last a very long time!

I saw those too Gen-IL, but I really have my heart set on free standing. I have a couple really nice rooms to store by food supplies in, so space is not an issue. I keep a variety of 10# cans on hand typically too so I need something big and sturdy. thanks.

My husband built me a free standing wooden shelving unit(very sturdy) and I just use a step stool to access what I need and replace items. 5' high, 5' wide and 3' deep.
THINK......It's not illegal yet.

One of the threads somewhere on this forum has a can rack built by one of our members. He included photos and very good description on how to build one out of a sheet of plywood, 1 x 10's and pegboard. He has it as a FoodPantry. pfd file.
