Giveaway: Food Storage Can Rotation Organizer

A common occurrence in American households that stirs up for me remorse every time I witness it is throwing away food that has gone unused. What good is it to stock up on food sales if the food expires or rots before being able to use it? For this reason, one of my favorite food organizing ideas is the first-in-first-out can rotation rack! This is an easy way to use up food in the order in which you bring it home.


These can rotation shelf units are by the FIFO Storage company. These were my first additions to my basement that made the statement, "I'm serious about food storage!" I have several of these, and one lucky person will get to pick out one from my storage room. To clarify, out-of-state readers can also enter. The winner will have a choice between two styles, so you can receive the prize that works best for you!


Measures: approx. 12" h/ 16" d/ 16" w (width depends on what cans you put in)
Holds: 45-54 cans (45 regular canned veggies size; 54 soup size)
Great for: soups, vegetables, tomato paste
More info found here: http://www.fifostorage.com/shop/can-tracker-p-1472.html


SECOND CHOICE:
The Mini Can Tracker

Measures: approx. 10.25" h/ 15.5" d/ 16.75"w (width is adjustable based on which cans you store)
Holds: 24-30 cans
Great for: large soup cans, canned pumpkin, fatter fruit cans, soda cans, etc.)
More info found here: http://www.fifostorage.com/shop/mini-tracker-p-1641.html


I love both types for different reasons. I've given you the measurements, so you can figure out which one fits your storage or shelf space and accommodates the types of cans you will be storing.

How do you enter the giveaway?
You can enter by doing one or both of the following:
1) Tell me in the comments a SPECIFIC financial goal you have for this year. (an item you want to save up for, wanting to learn how to invest extra money, paying off certain debts, etc.)

2) Place my blog button (seen at right) on your blog or in an online forum, then comment again and tell me the address of where you placed it, so I can see it! (To add a blog button, copy the code text found in the box under the blog button and paste it as a widget in your blog.)

That's it! You decide if you want one or two entries.
You have until noon (Mountain Time) on Friday, February 25th to enter. I will announce the winner on Saturday, February 26th (sometime after I rub the crusties off my eyes and fill my belly).

OK, get rolling!

  1. We have two immediate financial goals right now:
    1) Pay off a credit card (debt from a couple of small emergencies we weren't totally prepared for)
    2) Enlarge our emergency account to not have that happen again.

  5. 1) My financial goal is to become more self reliant, specifically by raising chickens for the first time this year. I know that sounds dumb but our family eats TONS of eggs. There are high up-front costs but in the long run it will be good. I feel that although I'm a stay-at-home mom and do not add to our income, there are a lot of ways I can decrease our expenses. So far I love what a garden and home baking have done for our family. I'm really excited about this goal.

    2) I added your button to my blog. You know where to find it. =o) Thanks!

  21. Hi, we actually just paid off all our debt before starting graduate school. Right now that's all we have in debt. We also have a rainy day fund that will hold us over for a month, just in case. What we'd like to do is to start putting money aside, just to make it easier to pay off the student loans once school is done. Thanks

  24. I am currently in school to become a teacher. As soon as I have my degree (this time next year) and have substituted for a while (to decide where I'd prefer to teach and which grade), we want to buy some acreage and build a house - with our own two hands.
    This year, my goals are to learn about buying land, loans, and calculate how much we can plan on spending for materials. I'd also like to set some realistic monthly spending goals so we will have enough to cover as much as possible with cash.

  81. MIKE LARRY LOANS That Save My Family From Financial Bondage {mikelarryloanfirmworldwide@yahoo.com}

    Hello Everyone, I am Collins Guzman from Texas USA, I will like to share this great testimony on how i got a loan from Mike Larry Loans, when we were driven out of our home when i couldn't pay my bills anymore, After been scammed by various companies online and denied a loan from my bank and some other credit union i visited. my children were taken by the foster care, i was all alone in the street. Until a day i shamefully walked into an old school mate who introduced me to Daisy Maureen. At first i told her that i am not ready to take any risk of requesting a loan online anymore, but she assured me that i will received my loan from them. On a second thought, due to my homelessness i had to take a trial and applied for the loan, luckily for me i received a loan of $80,000.00 from Mike Larry Loans. Am happy i took the risk and applied for the loan. my kids have been given back to me and now i own a home and a business of my own. All thanks and gratitude goes to MIKE LARRY LOAN COMPANY for giving a meaning to life when i had lost all hope. If you currently seeking for a loan assistance, you can contact them via: {mikelarryloanfirmworldwide@yahoo.com}
