This land of utter neutrality is not terribly unlike the small town in which I grew up. Meager one-story, flat-roofed houses painted a dull gray stand out against the lighter gray of a watery fog. Each of the near-identical houses are spaced apart the same distance, resulting in a rather dull looking town that, after being viewed for any extended period of time, becomes sore on the eyes.
Spare bedrooms -if you have an extra room in your homes, then it is a great place to store your food. Being large enough to contain ράφια and surround shelves is a plus. This means you can store a lot more supplies to last for a longer time.
Organization starts with honest evaluation of your secret garage treasures, sometimes hidden away out of sight for decades. To separate some of the inventory, place your items into one of two categories: things you will pull out for seasonal use and the rest intended for indefinite storage.
Metal shelving is also excellent in saving space. You can easily utilise space that on other occasions are just wasted when you do not use shelves. Just make sure that the shelves that you install are durable and have been designed perfectly for the kind of purpose that you have in mind.
The small financial investment required in purchasing your shelves can go a long way in keeping your valuable possessions secured inside the unit. If you compare it to the total cost of renting a storage unit for the long term, it would only be a minimal consideration. And since you’ll be utilizing more of the vertical space, you can rent a small sized storage unit instead of a bigger one.
Next item on your agenda should be to get into the garage and sort through all the clutter you have and categorize them. You may have categories like, bikes, car supplies, tools, ski equipment, etc. When you come up with categories like this, you will get a sense of whether you need items like hooks for hanging your bikes or boxes for storing your car supplies. You will be able to logically make note of the different shelving material that you will require.
A lot of people avoid getting STARTED because this sounds like a huge and overwhelming task. But just remember, even accomplishing up to step 3 will put you in a far better position than most of the country should an emergency arise. Get that much done immediately and then take your time to truly figure out the more difficult long term food storage concepts.
