Last week, I tackled our canned food situation by building a DIY Can Organizer, and it was life changing.  But I still had one more pantry problems to solve.

We go through a lot of produce in our household, so having good vegetable storage is a big deal to keeping our household running.  I've tried all sorts of things - baskets, canisters with "breathing" holes, wood bin cabinets - we've tried it all.  I think I've finally found the PERFECT produce storage system - wall mounted bins!!!
