Google reports 3000+ hits, but many of those are not cudboard
but CUD Board, sometimes referring to the Canadian University
of Dubai (of all things!).
I encountered it in the wild in a "freeecycle" listing from a woman
anxious to part with some cans of baked beans and tomatoes:
"cleaning out my cudboard, like 30 cans total. just have too much.
no name brands. must take all!"

Prepared and sent with Chaos Software's Intellect mail client.
Intellect's contacts and appointments managers also are cool.
