Storage Run

Headed to the property to make our first true “Storage Run”.

Since we started prepping, even before we thought seriously about purchasing property, we have been putting things aside in case of a “rainy day”. Things we might need if for some reason we couldn’t purchase these items anymore, be it a loss of income for some reason, or true collapse. Or what if we just needed extras in case a disaster came and we needed to share with our neighbors.

Items we have been saving are things that perhaps we don’t currently have a use for, but still have some life left in them.

  • Used coats
  • Hiking/work boots
  • Snow work boots
  • Hats and gloves

We also started storing useful and hard to get toiletry and paper items.

  • New toothbrushes
  • Toothpaste
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Toilet paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Napkins
  • Nitrile gloves and other first aid items

Useful items for working outdoors during various scenarios.

  • Dust masks
  • Work gloves
  • Protective eye-wear
  • Raingear

Useful household items

  • Extra blankets
  • Pillows

Everything was packed in sturdy plastic containers just in case rodents invaded the shed and labeled or had an inventory list attached to the outside.

This all fit in the loft of our shed/cabin on the property.

I was relieved to have these boxes (6 in all) out of my living room finally. 🙂

As we get our actual house built up there (going through the permitting process now) I imagine we will do a few more of these prior to the full move.

More later!
