The thing about Prepping is it implies you have the room to store food and supplies. But such is not the case for everyone. In response to my post The Beauty of Bakery Buckets, a reader named Mrs T wrote the following:
I would love to do this but where do you store these huge buckets? I already have a full pantry from buying in bulk, no attic and only a over flowing outside storage building. Rodents and heat are horrid here in Texas. Any advice?
She has an excellent point. While I always suggest making room in one's living quarters that you might not have thought of -- under beds, extra closet shelves, that kind of thing -- or making addition room by giving unneeded possessions to charity or holding a yard sale, etc. -- clearly there's only so much you can do if your living space is small.
So, dear readers, what are your thoughts for Mrs T? Hers is not an uncommon lament, so any thoughts or advice will be appreciated by many.
