I don’t have space for stored food in my apartment.
Designate some closet or under-the-bed spaces for storing food. If you are committed to storing food, it’s surprising how many places can be found to store it.
What about storing water?
Bottled water is very easy to store and rotate. Fourteen gallons of water, less than five cases of 24 17-ounce bottles, is a two-week supply for one person. Another option is to buy bottled water from companies, like Culligan, which will deliver it.
Everyone, including singles and couples, benefits from storing food. Solutions to concerns singles or couples may have about buying, storing and using food storage do not have to be complicated. Purchasing food consistently each week pays off when over the months your supply of food grows and with that, a sense of peace in knowing you’ve taken responsibility for caring for yourself.
That’s a good feeling everyone should have.
