Non-food supplies

These are supplies I keep in the basement. It's a combination of useful and emergency items.

Most of the top shelves are for an extended stay in the basement. A bad tornado could see us trapped there or nuclear fallout could require a very long stay. At the top is an air mattress and pump with extra batteries. Below that are mainly emergency items including matches and anti-bacterial soap.

Two shelves are dedicated to my obsession with never running out of toilet paper. :)

And at the very bottom is a camp stove with propane bottles. Also stored around the basement are baby wipes for hygiene, a kerosene space heater and fuel, seeds and materials for seed starting, a hand-cranked clothes washer, first aid supplies and a bucket of comforts (deodorant, toothpaste and brushes, etc.).

This could be useful in the snowy conditions we are encountering!

We have been known to run out of toilet paper...My nephew once sat on the toilet for 20 minutes waiting for me to arrive back from town....however i am sure the kids eat it and that's why I get through so much...lol
