Organizing Your Stockpile
Organized Stockpile Of Food
So here we are, talking about the most dreaded stockpiling operation: item organization. Usually, this stage of the stocking process is the most time consuming… and it`s also the most boring one.
I say “usually”, because there are a few methods you can use to make this chore a lot easier and pleasant. And I`m going to share 5 of these methods with you, right here.
But first of all, you need to understand why organizing your pantry is so important. I mean… sure it would be quick and simple to just put cans and boxes on shelves and on the floor. But as your stockpile grows, it will get harder and harder for you to check the dates written on the package. This means you`ll end up with half a pantry packed with rotten food… and with $1,000s thrown out the window!
Stockpile Organization Is Important!
Organizing your stockpile is not an optional step in the process, it is a necessity. However, you`ll be glad to hear there are lots of fun ways you can do it (together with your kids or grandkids, if you like):
1. Organize your stockpile according to the space you`ve got on hand
Space is the first thing you need to take into consideration when you start organizing. If you have a large basement where you keep your stockpile, then you`ll have enough room to use any system you like. You can keep water in large bottles on the floor, next to baskets filled with veggies. And you can cramp shelves with cans, boxes and jars.
If all you`ve got is a kitchen cupboard, you`ll need to improvise. Clear the top of the cupboards to make room for some more items (but make sure they`re well covered and protected from sunlight). Keep the perishables as close to the floor as you can, and put items with the longest shelf life higher. However, keep them away from heat or humidity. Heat and humidity will spoil your whole stockpile in a split second.
2. Plan HOW MUCH you`ll buy
My advice here is: never buy more than 12 items at a time. This is my top limit. This way, it`ll be easier for you to organize your purchases, without taking forever to date them and place them in your pantry.
