Its been forever since I have been on sparkpeople. Glad to be back and happy to see the comments on the pantry. I have labeled my shelves using the hanging file folder tabs and I love the suggestion of turning the shelves upside down to give each shelf an edge. Thx!

I noticed that you have the shelves with the edges pointing down. Long ago a mother-in-law of mine turned her shelves the other way so the lip of the shelf is pointing upwards. I asked why and she said if the shelves got knocked or there was an earth tremor then everything stays on the shelves. She said in the "olden days" everyone used their shelves that way ~ like a little fence ~ for all the canning they would do.
That being said if the shelf edge is turned upwards like a box, I have seen people use construction paper and make signs and they then hang the signs (labels) by putting a hole in each top coner and looping it to the edge with the slip through garbage ties. Also white plastic ties that you use for bundling computer cables are perfect too.
Coloured construction paper and white label maker can look cute or recipe cars etc.

The shelves have wire style ridges, have you considered trying a standard, large, file folder tab. In the photo, it looks as if the tab ends should slip behind the wire spokes.

Thanks! Yes, it is one of those shoe organizer things. It was on the back of the door to this room, but I had the extra space so I decided to move it. I like it because the everything is in eye sight no digging behind something to find what what you want. Also because the pockets are clear some of the smaller items can fit in one pocket together. Then I just have to reach in and pickout the one I want (i.e. deodorizer refills). Kim

WOW!!! I love that. Is that a shoe rack that is holding the cleaners?
