Recycled Storage

     So who isn't inspired by Pinterest now days? You can't spend half a minute on their page without ideas flooding your brain! I love it! Recently I saw a storage idea for soup cans using magazine holders. It got me thinking. I'm a big couponer (not extreme!) and i love creative solutions for storing the great deals I score.
     Part of successfully stock piling groceries is organizing them so that you use them before they expire. Hence the project!

     I took some empty pop (soda- if you don't live in Michigan) boxes and covered them with contact paper I had leftover from my kitchen project. Using my beloved chalkboard paint I painted some .25 cent wooden shapes I found at Hobby Lobby and glued them to the front of the boxes.

Here's how they turned out!

     Now, when I get done with my shopping I load the boxes with my cans but always take them out from the bottom, so that my recent purchases come out last.

     Pop boxes are the perfect size for soup cans or small tomato cans. Now if only I could find a good rotation system for those cereal boxes!
