Cake Boxes- Storage Issues

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Does anyone have a good idea for how to conveniently store large amounts of unfolded cake boxes? We have a small bakery and at the moment all our cake boxes (8in to full sheet) are stacked on top of each other on one big shelf they are heavy and a pain in the rear to get to any of them. Like I said we are limited on space so any compact ideas would be greatly appreciated! 

 

Thanks!

I'm at home right now so I can't take a picture for you, but we bought several 48" x 24" Metro shelving units at a restaurant auction for dirt cheap.  I then put 12 shelves on one 6' tall unit.  The bigger boxes each have a shelf (full sheet, half sheet, 14" 12") but the smaller boxes and corresponding cupcake inserts fit 2 or 3 to a shelf.  I labeled the shelves so it's easy to spot the box we need.  Money WELL spent and it only takes up 2' x 4' of floor space.

No problem!  I'll try when I get a few minutes later today.  I currently have two shelves removed right now because I'm re-arranging my setup since I added a couple more sizes of boxes.

 

I thought of you when I saw this deal:  http://slickdeals.net/f/6414408-edsal-48-w-x-24-d-x-72-h-5-shelf-steel-shelving-black-59-free-10-gc-free-ship-at-walmart?related=6424338&src=rtw

 

You could buy two of these shelving units and install all 10 shelves on one unit (shelves can be added at 1/2" increments), or buy three of them for $150 and have 15 shelves on one unit.  This is going to be FAR cheaper than buying Metro shelves, which brand-new are $50 per shelf.
