A Tour of My Stock Pile and Food Storage + How I Shop for Groceries

I headed down to my basement to give you a tour of my stock pile and food store. I also shared what I’ve done to be able to build up my stock pile. It’s nice to be able to “grocery shop” in my basement rather than running to the store every time I need an item for dinner. I also share a few price points of some of the products on the shelf. I realized that I didn’t show you my personal care products such as toothpaste and shampoo. I keep them organized upstairs in my closet. You can click here to see the video if you can’t see it above. Leave a comment below if you have any questions or to share some of your tips on how you build up your stock pile.
