Stocking Up & Where To Put It?

I like stocking up when items are on sale but wondered-

Where does everyone put their stuff?

I have mine in the basement, in the closets have even put it under the bed.

That is my problem living in an RV most of the time. I have limited space, so I can't stock up here or I'd get claustrophobic. I only have so much space under my bed, and much of that is for things that I need for other seasons such as coats and heaters. Plus, I live in an area in which we have to use bottled water. That takes up a lot of space as well as my textbooks, bookbag, and so on.

I wish that I had an extra room for stuff like this. We have very little "extra" space to stock up on stuff that is bigger than a soup can.

I have a shed outside, pretty good size it looks like a little house with windows and I've thought about trying to put non perishables out there like TP but am afraid the mice might get into it. I've heard those little buggers can squeeze themselves into the tiniest opening so I've been puzzling on how to utilize that space. I do have mouse blocks out there and found 2 dead mice this spring ewww!!! Hmm... I was just thinking some things like bottled water and packets of Koolaid in glass jars with lids are two things that are non perishable. Now I'm thinking.. any other ideas?

If you don't have a problem with cats, an outdoor cat is almost a sure bet you won't have mice problems. If a cat is not possible, let me know what you come up with.

We have a bunch of outdoor cats, only one is a mouser and they all get fed by a elderly neighbor, LOL!

I bought a cabinet with doors that i have in the garage, which is right next to the kitchen. It is so handy and has sliding shelves. Stocking up is much easier that way, organized, veggies, soups, etc. gl!

Anna, you could put your paper products, etc. in Rubbermaid tubs and stack them in the shed. Those tubs close tightly and should be mouse-proof. I use them in the garage and they keep out crickets, spiders and the occasional squirrel who finds his way in there when the kids forget to shut the door

I wouldn't keep food items out there though, unless they are in tightly-closed glass.

I have a fairly big pantry in my basement but I do keep my "overflow" of paper towels and cleaning supplies in the garage.
