A pantry that you can depend on is convenient to use and can store up back-up packages for every item you purchased for home use. A simple rule to follow is a systematic storing of additional packs for every product from toothbrushes to tortellini. You can start to have one by having at least three-day food supply for the family and adding a reserve for another person. For bigger or mid-sized pantries, stored food supplies can last for two weeks to a month for a family to survive, especially in emergency cases. The pantry can store packages of fresh foods, powdered milk, fruits and vegetables and other products for everyday use. Having a good monitoring of supplies to be bought draws you from taking a long list of things to buy as what is usually done in traditional home organization. A good storage process in a pantry uses everything purchased and not simply buying a product and after a few months you would wonder why a certain product was bought.

As a stay at home mom, this was one area the kids and I could serve and help others. It taught the kids a good lesson in giving. 3.
