Life is unpredictable. While we enjoy the comforts of day-to-day life and having a set routine, we have to be ready for the worst. Storm season is coming soon, and if 2020 has taught us anything, it’s to always be prepared. In the event of a natural disaster or another emergency, it’s advised to keep supplies such as a first-aid kit, batteries, and flashlights around. Additionally, your pantry should be stocked for emergencies. Are you prepared? Our closet organizer installation services providers break down how to set up your emergency pantry for your Atlanta or Alpharetta home.
Ready.gov recommends staying prepared by having non-perishable foods in case of natural disasters, power outages, and other occurrences that can disturb our everyday lives. The last thing you want to be in those situations is underprepared. These events can cause populations to “panic” and make a trip to the store at the last minute to stock up. This causes long lines and supply shortages at grocery stores. By keeping emergency food items in your pantry, your family can stay ready for when the unforeseen happens.
Water is among the most important supplies to have in your emergency pantry. Fresh, drinkable water is essential in various emergency situations. Some of the more common and recommended food items to store include:
Many sources recommend having at least three days’ worth of food on hand. Make sure to routinely check for expiring or spoiled products in your emergency pantry and eat or replace them as needed to minimize wasting food. For the canned goods, keep a functioning manual can opener handy in case of a power outage. If you have pets, have food for them also in stock.
If you are planning to set up an emergency pantry, an organizer system will help you make the best use of your available space. With different storage options available (e.g., shelves, cubbies, and drawers), a newly designed pantry will provide an organized and concise area to dedicate your emergency supplies. A closet organizer system with professional installation services will provide a sturdy, dependable, and easily managed space for groceries and supplies—perfect for any Alpharetta or Atlanta homeowner.
