  • ways to organize my stuff

    I am looking for ways to organize all of my hunting , fishing, and survival gear. I would like to kept all in one room and in easy access. Any ideas are welcome and picks or daigrams would be a plus. Thanks in advance.

    I've been trying to do this for about 40 years and never made the perfect system yet!
    I think the best that one can do is either keep the gear on dedicated shelves or in dedicated bins perhaps with subdivsions for the seasons:
    4 fishing bins
    perhaps 2 hunting bins
    1 survival bin?
    Not a very tidy approach but the advise is free and you get what you pay for!:)

      Same here. I wish it was simple process. I re-organize once or twice a year, but am never completely satisfied. I keep everything in one dedicated room. I have two packs with the basics for an emergency exodus. The rest of our stuff is divided in bins related to purpose. Food - Extra Ammo - Extra clothing - Extra equipment - Electronics - Books - Tools.

      My thought is that I might be faced with three possible scenarios:

      1.) Able to stay in my home (all my stuff can stay where it is)
      2.) Have to depart from my home, but am afforded time to load everything in my truck (all bins go in the vehicle)
      3.) Have to depart from my home without the luxury or time or transportation. (just take the two packs)

      The third scenario scares to poop out of me, but at least we will have the basics.

        Thanks for the info any ideas on how to separate the gear other than hunting and fishing and survival. I was thinking to put things in there own place like I have to different tackle boxes, one for game fish and the other is for catfish. hunting is sep. for the different game. than there is the hiking gear/ survival gear. guns, ammo, cleaning supplies, food , so on so forth. anybody thoughts , ideas.

          I keep a years supply of food in my camper on jack stands. I keep a six month supply of everything in my abandoned copper mine. I have enough stuff stored on my farm to supply my grandkids for many years. Luxury stored over 40 years. I hope you all get there.
          Those who would trade freedom for security will end up with neither.

            Try this...

            Either Home Depot or Lowes has something similar to this. (At least in our area.) It all depends on the size of the room you plan to use for the storage. We use an unused bedroom and have something like 5 shelf units full of supplies.

                  The closest I have come is the $10 totes from wallyworld. They are color coded. Red for first aid, blue for water filters and bags, green for camp supplies and hygiene, orange for food. We've written what's in them on the lids. It's by no means perfect but it's as close as we've gotten to organization.

                    I use big clear totes that you can see what is in them and I also label them and store them on shelving units. I don't keep them all in one location as I do not like to risk all my eggs in one basket. My fishing gear is broken up into fresh water and salt water and my hunting gear is divided into camo, hunter orange and snow camo. Then I divide my hunting hardware into archery and fire arm season. I keep all of my hunting and fishing gear out in the man cave above my work shop and all of our camping gear in our basement. We keep our power outage supplies at the top of the basement stairs. Our food stores are stored in multiple locations around the house. I will echo what every one else has said and that I have also found no perfect system, so it always seems that I keep tweaking it every year.
