Kinda depends on what type of containers you are storing. I have been on a canning kick recently, and have learned that you don't want to stack jars, or make the shelves too deep. You don't want to obscure whats in the jars.

Come on Jed I know you have built some auto rotating can organizer
Lets see pic's

Is anyone storing Non-Hybrid seeds? Have you planted any in the summer and yielded seeds from the crop? What brand did you order? Just trying to get a good idea of where to order good ones from someone with experience

Nah, I just use plywood, glue, and screws. Come to think about it, my kitchen shelves are overflowing, and I really need to do this storage thing.

As far as the crop thing, I have not used 'grown' seeds yet. I had good luck with the seed bin at Lowes up the road. The strawberry plants, not so much. They would grow and green out really good, but I couldn't get the fruit any bigger than the size of a quarter.

Steve is a character, and comes up with some cool stuff. Here is an organizer for canned goods.

I convinced the baker at my local Carrs to give me some buckets. They are the 3.5 gallon ones that used to contain berry filling and stuff.

Best price is always free.

Costco has 50# sacks of rice for around 20 bucks. I've also heard that you can use those hot hands hand warmers as an oxygen thief.

Oxy absorbers are cheap on amazon, mylar bags are also pretty cheap on there. I get rice oats beans and sugar from the mormon cannery Jed
