As stated in a previous post, I only collect cans of non-alcoholic drinks and that's because I can't collect every kind of can out there. Alcoholic or non-alcoholic is a black-and-white issue. If I said "no teas," then what about Ohana which is distributed by Faygo? I collect Faygo cans but do I say only some Faygo cans? And Monster Energy has a line of coffees and tea, so do I only collect some Monster cans? So to make things easy, I collect all cans that are non-alcholic. I even have a V8 12 oz can.
Which leads to this post. Last night I decided to get out my boxes of cans that are taller than the standard 12 oz size, which usually means energy drinks, coffees and teas. When I set them out I was a bit surprised. There were only 75 cans. In a collection that has reached 750 cans, only 10% are taller than 12 oz cans. It seems like I pick up teas and energy drinks quite often, but apparently not as often as I thought.

Going the other way and looking at cans smaller than 12 oz, I only have a couple dozen 8 oz cans. The next two sets of shelves I build will be smaller than the previous shelves I built. One set will be for the cans pictured above (larger than 12 oz) and the second set will be for the small 8 oz cans.
