A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever.

I should have taken a "before" picture...I forgot about doing it until I had already moved 90% of the stuff off the shelves. Yes, I moved most of the stuff you see on the shelves. By myself. One handed.

Steve and Alex put together the black metal shelves on the left.
Steve and Danny put together the rolling can shelves. We bought them from Costco.com, using our rebate check. I'm looking forward to getting them filled up. I'll work on that next payday.

I had some extra money in my grocery budget this week (due to the fact that I haven't been shopping much with my broken wrist). We used the surplus to buy a small freezer (and partially fill it).

We still have more work to do in the rest of the garage. All of the cases of #10 cans (from the drypack cannery), which constitute our long-term food storage, need to be shifted.

Sounds like a job for the boys.

Whoa...and totally jealous. How sore was your good arm after that? How is the freezer, or is it too soon to tell?

I didn't know you could buy those shelves at Costco. Not that we have Costco here in Wal-mart country but when I get to WA, hmm. How do you like them?

Costco doesn't carry the Shelf Reliance shelves in the stores...we ordered them from Costco.com (free shipping - yea!). I don't know for sure how well I'll like them, but I'm hoping they will help solve rotation issues.

And they're fun.
