How do you guys store your jams, juices and whatnot? (pictures appreciated)

- because we've got certain cellar rooms for this, but I believe our wooden shelves are hella unsafe for the way we are storing bottles.. I was thinking of replacing them with metal (tool) shelves that one can screw to the wall, that also have shelve boarders to hinder the bottles from accidentally slipping over the edge.

All in all, it will be an investment, so I wondered how others are doing it.

on that note; I've run out of bottles.. I usually use 500ml glass bottles with a big turning lid (metal)
-- any ideas what can be used instead?
I'm currently at a loss of thought..

Custom built by hubby for my jars - we now have a 2nd set of shelves that use a thicker board. Will take a photo of it later.

This was my 2017 harvest (250 Kilos of tomatoes) which we are still eating! In NZ we use Agee jars, which are the same as mason jars just a different brand name. There are a few mason jars in this lot as well - somewhere....

for earthquake prone areas I've seen people put a cord or board on the front of the shelf to stop anything sliding off. Curtain wire works well as it is strong.
