I am beginning to accumulate more preparedness supplies (toiletries galore!) ... which means that I am quickly running out of room to keep my storage organized. Although I considered the idea of purchasing bins to hold my items (and trust me, nothing makes me more giddy than a parade of stuff all neat-and-tidy in coordinating bins!), I quickly realized that the money I'm allocating for prepping supplies would quickly be devoured by bins to organize those (now unaffordable) supplies. Thanks to a tip from a helpful friend, I learned that our local grocery store offers the perfect solution! When I stopped by the bakery department last night, I was given (for free!) 6 large buckets with lids. The thrill of this bounty was topped only by the pervasive scent of leftover icing.
Since these buckets are food-grade, I will eventually get more so I can store packages of pasta or rice when I get them on sale.
I'm a delighted beyond words to have begun implementing this new storage solution.
