37 Creative Storage Solutions to Organize Your Food & Supplies!

One of the biggest concerns people have when beginning to prepare is…


Where the heck do I put everything?


With pantries shriveling away it makes it difficult to store hardly anything in them, and if you’re trying to store a year supply of food and supplies… you can just forget it!


But don’t worry, there is hope!


I searched high and low for ingenious ideas to help inspire you!


Take a look at these 37 Creative Storage Solutions – you’re likely to find at least a few that work for you!


  • USE WASTED SPACE…


Go on a tour of your home and find any wasted space! Look up high, down low, behind walls, in corners, and everywhere in between! You might be surprised how much you can actually store in these areas you originally over-looked!

;) I think you have everything covered. If I find something else, I will be happy to share.


I looked at the metal bracket hanging jar website. They had a fundraiser and I noticed they didn’t meet their quota back on February 8. It does look like an interesting concept. If the company doesn’t come to fruition, I would think a person could do the same thing by using wooden brackets similar to wine glass rack.


If I lived in an earthquake area, I would buy wide rubberbands and put them around each jar in a position where they have a potential to bump into each other.


If I had that set-up, I would also want a tray on the top of the rack that is below the jars. Cleaning up breakage would not be easy otherwise.

My grandkids love the new rubber band loom toy that is so popular with kids right now.

They have dozens (and dozens!) of the bands. They are fantastic for putting on the canning jars to keep them apart. And It gives the kids reason to keep on making them!

One thing I noticed is that several of these areas are in hot zones or near heat outlets such as the refrigerator. Attics are usually the hottest spot in the house, and appliances throw off a considerable amount of heat. This can damage food products or cause them to lose quality, taste etc much faster. I would use attic space and other “Hot” areas for paper products and similar types of items and save the space they take up in cooler areas for the food products. Cooler areas of the room are nearer to floor. The higher up you go in any room the higher the temps are. Also storing foods where they receive a lot of light (such as the shelf near the window filled with clear glass jars of food items) causes faster deterioration as well. Most things recommend storing in a cool, dark place.

Hi! Just found your site today and already have several answers I’ve been looking for! I am a total newbie and have canned, gardened or anything.

Thanks for stopping by. It’s highly recommended to store any food or canned goods at room temperature or colder if possible. You can put foods in a hot garage or shed, but they they won’t last nearly as long. I’ve put food in the garage before, and after getting a few cans of vegetables that were nearly boiling I decided to rearrange things:)


If possible, try to find room in the house (the cooler and darker the better)for food, and then put non-persishable items and supplies outside.

Don’t put canned goods in the garage because they will freeze in the winter—glass jars will break and cans will expand and split. Basement is a good spot if dry- mine isn’t. Under the bed if no basement or behind books on a bookshelf. On the floor in the back of a closet… Just really look at every nook and cranny. God Bless

We are not very good builders at my house. I used two of the 16″ by 4 feet wide and 5 feet tall. Then invested in can consolidator show above. They are adjustable so you can connect them together and make can size slots. Got them on sale, but they are totally worth the price. They have been very durable and will so be two years old.
