My Storage Bunker

I would call this post my pantry, but since I don't have a pantry, we keep all of our extra food supplies in the basement.  It looks like this:


Dry goods, canned goods, home canned stewed tomatoes.

Lot's of ramen stuff for the boys & back-up containers of cake mixes, muffins, & puddings for me.


Whether it's a nice, pretty pantry in your kitchen or metal shelves in the basement, do you lay in food supplies in bulk, or do you just buy as you need stuff?

When my family was bigger we had food stashes. Now with just me and the boys, we have tons of extras because none of us eats much unless it's junk food. =)

I kind of walk down the middle. I have some things I store up on; but most things I buy as I need them.
Enjoy your weekend hun!!

I have a closet that I turned into a tiny tiny pantry for "day to day" things cause its soooo tiny.

But I did take over a piece of the basement (shelving units around a support pole) where I have all my stuff. We could probably do well with my stash if I couldn't get out of the house.

Well with that stuff and my freezers!

My shelving is molded plastic (but supports enough weight, at least so far) not the metal ones you have - I think I'd like to have those!

What a great storage system! I have nice cabinets for storage. But I don't store much. Just a few things to get me through the next couple of weeks. So I am very impressed with your system. Good job!

Good question - if there's a sale on something I really like- I'll buy up the store - 2 liter diet cokes were on sale for .79 a couple of months ago - bought over 40 bottles... I know crazy... The husband gets into it too! He loves scallops (I can't stand them) he bought lbs and lbs of them....

Love to you

I used to buy in bulk when we had all 8 kids at home. Now it's nice to be able to buy as I need it.

We have a pantry that could serve as a good size bedroom. We try to keep enough food for an entire month in case there were to be an emergency. This food has to feed at least 25 people.

Wow you are really stocked up. I would love to do this. I usually end up with just enough for a week or two.

YOur storage place is so neat. I can't find a darn thing in mine. I need to organize mine better.
