Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Nooooo. Deep down I want to confess this little secret. I think I can do so to some extent, but progressively. I wish I'd never been secretive about prepping. ..He'd think I was nuts stashing food under the bed, though I'm trying to bring him on board with 'Brexit prepping'. Rather embarrassing TBH...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Gorilla boxes are sturdy wheeled beasts that would easily fit into those dimensions. Examples at https://www.solentplastics.co.uk/big-boxes-plastic-storage-trunks/gorilla-storage-boxes-tough-military-trunks/ Thanks but EEK at those prices. I couldn't live with spending more on the box than the cont...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Jenny, you can get storage boxes on wheels, lots of different sizes/shapes, just type "wheeled storage box" into your preferred search engine/online supplier, you might get something to fit your nooks and crannies. Thanks Deeps, I've had a look on amazon etc and though there are all shapes of troll...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

To get to this place (under my twisting staircase) I have to pull out the tumble dryer and assorted cleaning stuff Lol. So the OH pointed to the tumble dryer and said nothing for a while.... "What have you done? What's different?" "Huh? I looked at the dryer. It was centralised, not a spec of dust ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Shelves are your friend! I don’t ( obviously) know the layout of your house. Do you have a spare room or outbuildings? ... Organisation is liberating, and it saves a lot of money by minimising waste. Could you do something like that, perhaps? The other half isn't on board with filling the bedrooms ...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

The wheels where just simple timber circles with a screw in the middle to act as an axel . Didn't need to be any...

Re: What Preps are you doing this week? Part 6.

Today I extracted 7 fruit boxes full of tinned food and pasta sauces from the void under the stairs. This is a void that's really very awkward to access and had been a sort of one way 'stash and forget' stockpile. Since half of it is well paste BBE, I've decided to bring out the most expired stuff a...
