The jars are 3 deep on each shelf and the buckets on the bottom are flour and sugar. This isn't nearly all the canning jar food as the cupboard in the laundry room is still full but it definitely freed up space on the book shelves and the shelves that hold extra store bought goods.

Thrift Store Find
So today my thrift store shopping resulted in a new shelf. I was running out of shelf space in the spare (storage) room and had taken to setting canning jars on the book shelves wherever they would fit. Today at the thrift store I found the perfect shelf. It was in its original box which was "tore up", as we say here, but I was really hoping it hadn't lost any pieces. It had a metal framed shelf with wooden shelves. I also hoped that I could fit it in the storage room without having to move one of the existing shelves. I got lucky. It fit perfectly in the only space that was left. The only thing that bothered me was when we got home Michelle saying, "I bet Phil will have fun putting that together when he gets home." I asked her why she thought that I couldn't put it together. The instructions were in a different language but there was pictures and it isn't exactly rocket science. It took me about 15 minutes to get the shelf all together and then some time to move all the jars but here it is.
