Any working food storage is rotation

Notes:

  • Buying goods from retail – when they are on sale – is an excellent way to build your basement food storage.
  • You might consider building a mini-store in your basement with shelving and other storage racks.
  • Make sure you develop a rotation schedule so that food used can be replaced with newer items.
  • The goal is to have a running supply of food that can last you 2-3 months.

Don’t forget a chest freezer

Notes:

  • Like any retail store, you will find canned goods and frozen goods.
  • A chest freezer is nice to have for freezing meats, breads, sauces, and other items.
  • Buy your meat items in bulk for best price – simply freeze them away with use dates.
  • You might consider picking up a generator to keep your freezer going in the event of a power outage.
