Dollar Store Magazine Rack

There are multiple fabulous ways to use a dollar store magazine rack in organizing. I’ll give you my top 2. First, you can use it to store things like your aluminum foil and plastic wrap either upright or setting it on its thin longest side.

Second, you can use a wider magazine rack that will allow you to fit canned food inside. If you use it for canned food you will need to fashion some sort of stopper so they don’t all slide out.
