Convenient Canned-Food Storage

Canned food labeled with black marker

We used to store canned goods on shelves behind cabinet doors. My wife often thought that the item she needed was behind some other cans. The simple fix was location, location, location. We decided to put all cans in a large bottom drawer equipped with ball bearings, which makes it easy to open. That setup meant that she was now looking at the tops of the cans, not the labels. To solve that dilemma, we used a large felt-tip marker to label the lid of each can.
Now she pulls out the item she wants the first time. This storage method also helps when doing a quick inventory for putting together a grocery list.
