1. The first step is to get rid of stuff you do not use or need. It is more difficult than it sounds. You will have to find ways to either sell, give away, or just trade items and stuff you aren’t in need of.
2. Your next step is to invest in storage for the things you will be needing for your prepping needs. Get the same type of storage and keep each category of the same kind, in one storage place. Place them somewhere in an area where it will be safe, and you have easy reach to them.
3. Each storage box should have its own categories. In one box you will have your light sources, in another your fire starter sources, in another your food supply, in another your water. Etc.
4. You should label your boxes so you don’t lose your planning. Make sure the labelling sticks for good. Label your boxes. About six months ago I stopped using labels and began using painters tape instead. This has become a real game-changer in that the labels do not fall off. Not only that, they are easily removed and replaced as the contents of the boxes change.
