I really need more water and water purification stuff

Quoting Dianne1259:

AFTER WATER, WATER, WATER . . .

TP, Soaps and Bleach!  (at this point I am totally depleated since my DH - WHO DOESN'T BELIEVE IN ALL THIS HOKEY STUFF -  has been sick and we haven't had any income, but that will change as I start to restock soon)

If we are talking food, I have several hundred lbs of wheat, some sugar (can always use more) about 100# of beans (but want about 50# of lentils and other beans) I have 100lbs of dry milk and 50lbs of potato pearls, I need more rice (I want about 100lbs) and more canned tomatoes, fruits, broths etc. . .

OIL!!  I need to learn to rotate it more quickly, but it's important to have

shampoo, shower soap, deodorant, (for 4 people who all like somthing different!) razors, mini pads for me

An important thing to remember when stocking water is to also stock flavoring of some sort.

Quoting hipmomto3:

Sun Butter, coconut oil, canned chicken and tuna.

I need to work more on the non-food stuff, but WHERE to store that??? Like toilet paper or maxi pads... if I put it in the garage I'm afraid it will encourage chewing mice to invade. We don't have a basement. That kind of stuff just takes up a lot of space (a lot more space than food). 

Oh, and an axe. We just bought a really nice one. If we need to cut down trees for fuel, or, well, you just never know when you might need an axe! :)

Under the beds? I told my husband that we need a bed frame with risers so we can start stashing our non-food storage under the bed.
