I Don't Have Anywhere to Store it.

Who hasn't heard or maybe even said they don't have room for food storage. Here is a great list for finding spots you never even knew you had.


1. Under beds in boxes or on cardboard flats for easy retrieval.

2. Under baby cribs hidden by a long dust ruffle.

3. Between a bed head board and wall.

4. Between the couch and the wall.

5. Along the wall of a closet underneath hanging clothes.

6. Build a false wall with slanted shelves behind it that are one can height wide. Roll cans in the upper end; take them out on the lower end.

7. Cut out wall board between wall studs. Insert shallow shelves and put a cabinet door over it.

8. Locate unused space under stairs and behind walls of second story rooms. Cut a doorway, finish off walls and floors and put a vent in the wall.

9. Stack boxes or buckets. Put on a round tabletop and cover with a cloth for an end table or decorative accent table.

10. Mount 12” deep shelves, floor to ceiling, along a wall. Cover with drapes hung from the ceiling.

11. Build bookcases for books and/or toys out of boards and food storage buckets or boxes.

12. Add an extra shelf above the existing shelf in a closet.

13. Convert an extra closet or half of a large closet to shelves - built in or free standing.

14. Replace kitchen soffiting with cabinets.

15. Use the unused back spaces in corner cupboards.

16. Buy a free standing cabinet or armoire; add extra shelving if necessary.
