Giveaway: The Cansolidator from Shelf Reliance

Jan

Jan 7, 2011

{This giveaway is now closed.}

 

we went to my parents’ house for christmas.

my parents’ house is spotless. always. even when we were little. even with three toddlers running around like crazy people over the holidays.

spotless, i tell you.

no dust.
no clutter.
no rings in the toilet.
no piles of laundry.

one of these days i must ask my mother how she does it all, but until then i will continue to let the guilt and envy of her clean home inspire me.

i already wrote about my personal new year’s resolutions …but i want to add one more:

be more organized.

 

it’s a tough one for me, i’m not gonna lie. i am the person that bounces from one unfinished project to the next in my house while a pile/mountain of laundry stacks on my bed like sedimentary rock–dark layers on top of white layers on top of light colored layers on top of a very small red layer. (we don’t wear much red. we are BYU fans.)

even though i don’t want to be, i am more cluttery than my mother. (blast!) and i hate clutter! i hate to have things on the counter. i hate piles. but i have them. (i would add here, “don’t we all?” but seriously, my mom doesn’t.)

for example, here is what my pantry looked like recently:

chaos.

please note how high the “canned food” section is on the right. it’s stacked high and up too high!
let’s get a closer look. this is what the “can section” of my pantry recently looked like:
you will notice how tall said cans are stacked on top of each other–a la the leaning tower of pisa. if you have more common sense than i did a little bit ago, you are probably making a remark that cans stacked on top of each other like this are very dangerous especially with small children in the house.i went to get a can recently and one of the towers fell down on my toe–falling five feet. very painful. it is here that my common sense started to kick in.

so, i returned that email from Shelf Reliance and told them of my very sore toe and my very sad pantry.

they sent me two Cansolidator Pantry Organizers (one for me, one for you) and i was inspired.

first, i made mr. r put it together for me. (reading directions is not one of my forte’s, but it is one of his.)

it took mere minutes.

then i moved my can section to the bottom self of the pantry (while my sore toe was still throbbing and turning all shades of purple).

you know what’s surprising? over the next few weeks of using the Cansolidator, i was inspired to make the rest of my pantry more workable, more organized.


and this is what my “canned food” section looks like now!

makes this small part of my food storagelook pretty, doesn’t it? i think i need another one, though. (they are 30% off on their website right now!)

i am giving you the chance to make your food storage look pretty too thanks to the good people at Shelf Reliance! (valued at $44.99!)if you would like to enter this giveaway, here is what to do:
