    this is our storm-shelter/pantry....the old man we bought our house from had made this room in the south-east corner of the house, all 4 walls are 12" concrete w/rebar.

    That is a great store. How long does it take you rotate your stock?

    I didn't see any freeze-dried or dehydrated food items. About 2/3 of mine are of this kind, no immediate need for rotation. You must have a large family to rotate all of these. With just the two of us now it would take 'until the end of the world' to eat enough to completely rotate your pantry:D. Still like what you have done though.:2thumb:

    lots of dehydrated stuff in jars bunkerbob....i use instant coffee jars for most of it and dad's a butcher in a dely so i get a lot of nice sized tubs w/lids form potato salad, macaroni salads ect. from him so the peppers and tomatoes i dehydrate go in the larger tubs.....and as far as how many of us, it depends on when........there is 4 of us but there could be anywhere from 8 to 60 of us also.:beercheer::beercheer::beercheer::beercheer::beercheer::beercheer::beercheer::beercheer::beercheer::beercheer:

    I see you have a wonderful storage place and plenty in it. But I was wondering how you keep mice and other un wanted pests out of you supplies I see that you did not have every thing in bags or containers?

    Just finished setting up my mini tracker can rotation racks...Fifo Storage very easy and they work great. Just add newer purchased cans to the top and use the bottom ones, no need to mark dates on cans.
