If space is the greatest enemy then organization is our greatest ally.
For preppers and survivalists, we have our pantries stuffed to the gills in most cases but if we aren’t utilizing our space effectively we could be missing out on our ability to store more food and resources.
Not to mention there is just a soothing feeling when it comes to an organized space. Let’s look at 5 prepper related simple steps for organizing your pantry.
One of the easiest ways to organize your pantry is to move items to an alternate location. I dont mean another spot in the house, I mean another place altogether. You can bury dry foods. If your food storage is packed up safely, you can store that stuff in the ground around your home or at a bugout location.
A simple way to promote organization is to gather up the like items in your pantry and keep them together. Rather than just tossings dry goods on the racks, store the pasta with pasta, cans together, cereals, beans and so forth.
These things stack and work well together.
You can add to the above location by building a layout for your pantry. This will assure that like items not only stay together but are also kept that way. You can even hang a simple diagram in the pantry to remind family members
You can put pasta, cereal and other dry goods in different containers that take up less of a footprint and appear more organized.
A popular prepper favorite is to have some hidden storage. This means you take items from your pantry and begin to spread them around your home. Places like closets, under beds or even false walls, are all great places to store extra food and make organizing much easier.
