6 Creative Storage Solutions For Your Stockpile

Not all of us can have entire rooms or closets dedicated to our stockpile, so what do you do when you need to store everything that you’ve stockpiled? Because let’s face it – if you’re a couponer, you likely have a lot of stockpile goodies!

It’s time to think outside the box. Stockpile organizing made simple. Here are some of my favourite creative storage solutions for your stockpile!

Creative Stockpile Storage Solutions

1. Out of the package
Oftentimes, items are sold in big, bulky packages that take up more room than if they were removed from the package entirely.

For example, a small bin in your pantry can hold granola bars and oatmeal packets. A bin in your bathroom cupboard or linen closet can hold razors and feminine products.

2. Think vertically
Don’t just assume everything in your stockpile has to be stored horizontally on shelves. You can usually get a lot more storage space if you also store things vertically. Hang a shelf on your wall, use some stackable bins, and these peg boards work amazingly well, too!

I also love these canned storage options for pantry items.

3. Under the bed
Those big storage bins that were designed for under the bed work great for stockpile items! If possible, avoid storing food here, and instead store things like shave gel, bar soap, body wash, razors and hair care items. Anything that you will need in the bathroom or bedroom.

4. Store it everywhere
If you don’t have a designated space to store your stockpile all together, gather up some baskets and store it all over your home, in the places you need it.

For example, store your food stockpile in the kitchen and dining room, sunscreen in your hall closet, shampoo & conditioner in your bathroom and toothpaste & toothbrushes near your bathroom sink.

Another way to keep yourself organized with bins is to add labels to them. This makes it super easy to put things away and to find what you’re looking for.

5. Under the stairs
If you own your home, and really want some stockpile storage space, consider cutting an opening under your stairwell and adding a door. This will create somewhat of a stockpile “room”. It may be a bit small, but if you organize it efficiently, it can serve as a great storage solution for your stockpile!

6. The backs of doors
You know those shoe organizers that you can find pretty much anywhere? They work great for stockpile storage! Use them on the backs of doors around your home for organizing smaller items.

In the kitchen, put them on the back of your pantry door for spice and seasoning packets, the back of your bathroom door for toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste and the back of bedroom doors for small lotions and razors.

    I keep my stockpile in my awkward cupboards ie the one over the fridge that requires a stepladder to get into and the very deep corner cabinet. I took a good look at what I had stored there – most of which hadn’t been used in years, got rid of it and freed up a lot of space for case lots of canned goods, rice and baking supplies. I keep some in a more accessible location for everyday use
