food-storage - this is from the church site
"We want you to be ready with your personal storehouses filled with at least a year’s supply. You don’t argue why it cannot be done; you just plan to organize and get it done" (Spencer W. Kimball, August 1976).
"Those families will be fortunate who, in the last days, have an adequate supply of food because of their foresight and ability to produce their own" (Ezra Taft Benson, in Conference Report, Oct. 1980, 47; or Ensign, Nov. 1980, 33)
This is the time of year that we start to think about organizing and cleaning out stuffed closets, I know I have been working on this myself...
So these have been just some ideas to get your juices flowing because we feel more like doing things if we don't have to dig for things or hunt for things... and using what we have on hand to organize is a frugal thing.
I have heard of a sweet sister who have lined their cupboards and drawers with pretty pictures from the ensign so that every time they open the cupboard or drawer they have beautiful inspiring pictures to remind them of who they are.
We might not be able to afford the latest kitchen remodel but we can be using what we have to help us organize even if it is a mug to put pens in.
Look around and find what areas you would like to work in. I knew someone who did one drawer a week to get organized and by the end she had them all done and it was a task that was not a huge task. She broke it down so remember to break it down.
Remember that once you use something in your storage it is gone. Your job is to use replace and add so that you can be growing your storage and rotating it too!
Do not get overwhelmed, talk is easy... just do the best you can :)
