Where do I store this stuff (Store It)
by: briand
Tip: Depending on the size of your home you may have to get creative. We have used clothes closet space, under beds, and even the crawl space under our house. I saw a clever idea on a utube video where they used a long dresser behind the couch and made it into a storage unit. Just have fun and be creative, it is worth the effort.

Temperature affecting storage life (Store It)
by: briand
Tip: Using 70 degrees as an average temperature and the product says it will store for 5 years; if you can store that same product at 10 degrees colder you can double the life, and if stored that same product at 10 degrees hotter you cut the life time in half. So think about the area you want to store an item in.

Scanning out (Scan It)
by: briand
Tip: We toss all our cans and containers we use for the week into a bag and only scan out once a week. Great time saver.
