I want to see what I have, that's why I have label stickies on my buckets, that's why I don't keep items in boxes. Boxes also attract spiders and I just got rid of all the spiders (well from what I can see) after a 2 year battle. I don't want cardboard boxes stacked up with magic marker on the side, I want to actually see everything at a glance.
Can rotation systems take up more room than wire rack shelving and they are a lot pricier so those are out of the equation. Building my own shelving or rotating systems won't solve the problem. I just need more room or I should stop getting supplies.
It's a good problem to have. We will put up another shelf on Sunday and do some organizing. This year a lot of the small bottles of water will be used on trips, and replaced with larger jugs. The cases of bottles take up more room, so this will really help free up an entire rack, we just need to be patient.

I think my close neighbor is a prepper, they were out front as I grabbed a box from my car and they asked me if it was a box of goodies. I told them it was some bulk food since I cook and bake so much, it's cheaper to order it online. They said it's a good idea, especially if we get hit with an EMP. I responded that I didn't think that would happen, it's just the prices of food at the grocery store are a lot higher than I can get online.
Closet preppers perhaps?
A can of pineapple chunks at the grocery store had the sale price of $1.59, last year I paid $1 for the ones I have. I love pineapple chunks (in natural juice), it's super food for my joints. The cost of eating healthy is high.
