When it comes to being prepared in the case of a disaster, storage space plays a key role. We have always been aware of our limited storage space, but when we began disaster prepping this limitation became a huge issue.
A quick look around the house lead us to the conclusion that there was only one area we could convert for a little of our storage needs. We have a walk in closet in the bedroom that has been converted into an office. This is the same closet we crammed a deep freeze in, but that is covered in another post.
So a quick trip to Lowe’s to pick up some wooden 8 ft utility shelves for $10 each and some $2 brackets. Got it all home, marked the studs, and a few quick screws later we had our second row of shelves.
While this is not the complete solution, it is a step in the right direction. That’s what this process is all about, small steps in the right direction. And it gave us enough shelf space for our two week emergency supply.
