In the closet and under the bed. Use a notebook. Apartment living sucks for storage space!
We have a four box system,the soap box,the ballet box,the jury box and the cartridge box!
Oh what the hell .... I'm gonna go with flippant here Frosty. Look, I have no idea if you live in a trailer house, an apartment, or in a mega mansion. But after careful consideration I have decided to try and help ya out by sharing my tried and proved methods .... but don't tell everybody as it took me years to perfect.

And you will never know where I live. I have multiples of most things. I don't want to keep them together but I do want to build kits. So things like a comm kit may have several walks. It may also have a base station in there. I have two of them. Do I keep them in the same container. no. Do I try to separate them from each other in case of a localized fire. yes. Do I keep all my items in a BOB? Nope. Why? Because I intend on staying at my home as long as reasonable. In the event something is happening where I think I will need to bug out I will grab kits to make up what I need. I can do it fast. What I don't want to do is just have a bunch of stuff in a single bag in case I don't want or need it. I want to supermarket shop my preps quickly. I've been considering making nylon zipper bags with different preps in there like coms that I can grab quickly. i have also considered larger nylon zipper bags to load up food. Again. I am trying to avoid just creating big buckets of crap and have it organized so that I can quickly decide on what I want to include or exclude if necessary. Hope that helps.

We have stuff stored in the garage, in a hidden basement room, and in the woods on our property. Of course the woods storage is not a bulk of items it is pure survival stuff. Having everything in the garage stored in Rubbermaid containers also give the illusion that I am a hoarder and not a prepper. The containers are of course marked incorrectly but I know what the markings mean.
One group of shelves hold everything that can fit into our truck and has a mixture of stuff (medical, food, ammo etc.). If we feel like we need to go we will grab only the things on those shelves and will get as much of it as we can as fast as we can.
Its a work in progress but it is coming along and ever changing based on things I learn here and on what else we add to our prepping mix.
