PART 1:
Where do I start?
I was always scared to go get food from the food storage because it was in the basement and it was in a dark place.  My imagination would get the best of me, especially when I saw the bottles of meat! 
Now days, my Food Storage Room is my HEAVEN! 
I love to organize the shelves and basically play store! 
I would use the whole basement if my husband would let me . . .
bless his heart for being so grounded!
Food Storage Spaces can be found ANYWHERE in your home, not just in the basement and no one will even know it's there.
Under the bed.
In the pantry.
In a hall closet.
In a bedroom closet.
In the garage.
The list is endless!
Walk through your home and take a look around.
Did you find any empty shelves?
What about shelves with CLUTTER?
Now is the time to clear the clutter and make more room for the important things
LIKE FOOD STORAGE!
We have lots of great tips to share throughout this series.
So your CHALLENGE TODAY is to walk around your house and take notes. 
LIST the spaces you think will work for you and
clear any of the CLUTTER that could get in the way of your progress!
Make a plan, set a goal, and DO IT!
