Our church is having an Old-fashioned day next Sunday. So I found myself searching the local Thrift stores Saturday in hopes of finding something that by some stretch of the imagination would resemble pioneer clothing; sadly, I was not successful. I'm afraid most of their "old" clothing was 60's and 70's retro.
However, I was not totally disappointed, as I found a new organizing gadget. I picked this up for $7.99 (blush) at Goodwill. And the blush is because I really feel that is a little on the spendy side for a thrift store. But as soon as I laid eyes on this, all I could think of was the leaning tower of Pisa that is my canned goods cupboard.
You see, the one area of my food supply that I always have stocked up, even in lean times, is my canned goods. Sometimes I do this through sales, but the gleaners program we belong to also helps in this area. But I really hate digging through those stacks of cans. And invariably there is that one little can that should have been used first (many times over) but ended up last and is no longer safe for consumption...
Anyway, here it is put together.
To be honest, I doubt it will save me any space. But it will definitely make it easier to keep my miscellaneous cans (it holds up to 40) organized. And I looked up the website listed on the box and found this has a retail price of $55.49!
That made me feel a little better about the $7.99 :)
