A New Option for Water Storage
When I first heard about Lifestack Storage Containers I was immediately interested to see how they would work. Living in a small home presents challenges for water and food storage and I am always looking for solutions.
LifeStack Storage Containers are watertight, stackable, 1-gallon containers that store food and water. The containers are BPA free, and can be filled with either water or storable bulk items such as sugar, salt etc. The plastic is lightweight but durable. The containers are opaque and therefore protected from light.
These containers can be very handy and useful for storing water. They can be placed vertically in various tight spots, such as next to the refrigerator, between furniture, and behind cabinets. They fit well together and when stacked on each other will maximize your storage space.
I think they would also work well under a bed or couch and have found in other tests that most water containers leak when stored on their side, and therefore I always recommend storing water in an upright position. If you were storing solid items such as oats, salt or sugar, then there would be no issues of leakage if you were to store them horizontally.
Other than that, I think the Lifestack Storage Containers are ideal for storing in tight spaces. They are sturdy and stack well. The containers connect together and are very thin, allowing you to store several containers in a tight space. I think Lifestack Storage Containers are a great storage option for anyone who lives in a small space such as apartments, condos, tiny homes or RVs.
