I would encourage you to do something every week to help with your personal preparedness. Learn something, buy something, teach something or do something. Doing a little each week will pay off .

Organizing Non Food Items

My Herb Storage Shelf
We have a bathroom in our basement that is huge - not sure why it ws made that way, but it is bigger than any bathroom in the house and all it has is a potty and a sink. There are lots of shelves there so I use it for our non food storage. As I am deep cleaning our house my number one goal is to get it all put together so the preparedness items are available to use. I have had things all over the house. So I put in the repective area's a couple bars of soap and the rest in the storage area, two tubes of toothpaste in each bathroom and the rest in storage. I have a better idea of what we have and what we need.

One thing I do as far as inventorying our food is once a case is opened it is off the food storage list and added to the "need to buy" list. I just adapted that to the non food as well.
To have a successful food storage you need to have a system of inventory that works for you.
