See this unheated laundry room right here?

On Tuesdays and Thursdays, I post a photo (or three) and just a few words.

I’ve decided to look at it a little differently…it’s not so much an unheated laundry room as it is a Cold Storage Room for Root Vegetables and Squash.

And also for onions. But not next to the potatoes, because that’s bad news.

It is actually pretty nice to have a good place to put those foods because my kitchen has no pantry, and it’s not really a cool, dark place anyway (and coolness + darkness is what these sorts of foods like best.)

Never fret on what you don't have, but embellish on what you do have. Since you stated that you don't have a pantry in the kitchen , make your basement into a pantry and add décor to cheer the space. God has blessed me to use what I have and to shop at places that are in my budget ie., yard sales, thrift stores, and estate sales. I love your site and keep up the good work. Love you, Vanessa

That's why I LOVE our attached garage. We have a regular fridge out there in the warmer months and use the unheated garage as a "fridge" in the winter. I don't know what i did before we had two refrigerators. An awesome convenience :)

I was just thinking about this the other day. In the cold months I keep my onions and potatoes in the unheated garage. But I have a problem when the cold months pass. The onions are then put into the fridge, but I don't know where to keep the potatoes. In the past I placed them in the laundry room (AC for part of the summer), but they would go bad faster than they should. I can't put them in the basement because I can't do stairs. Suggestions?

See if you can put a blanket over them when the temperature drops, they should be better of ;) My grandparents did this in their celler...

I've always stored my onions & potatoes in the same storage bin. I've never had a problem with them going bad. Maybe I'm just lucky???

We store root veggies, onions and apples (all seperately of course) in a minimally heated (kept from freezing) room that we don't use and that has a door. Saves me from running into the basement daily. Also keeps the harvest/farm market purchases fresh for an extended period of time
