My Visit to The Layton Home Storage Center

Last week I shopped at the LDS Home Storage Center in Layton, Utah, to pick up a few items for my food storage. Shopping here has been on my to do list all month. When I started filling out the order form, the cashier told me I could walk into the display room to see what else was available. So, I stepped inside to see this room and took a few pictures for you.

Everything was nicely displayed to show how you can buy individual items or a box of items. The pouches of fruit drink and dry milk were new to me, so I decided to get a few. Then I saw the cans of dry beans. I stared at them for a minute. I'm not a dry bean chef, but I decided to buy a few cans of white beans for soup and black beans for burritos. I really need to work on overcoming my dry bean hurdle.

On the other side of the room I saw more items including Spaghetti Bites (note: they are smaller pieces, not long), so I got a few cans of those, and also a can of dry onions since it's the best price around.

An enlargement of the All Is Safely Gathered In: Home Storage pamphlet was on the wall by the registers. Love that! It's my self-reliance motto. My church uses the term "home storage," but it's really all about food storage.

After I paid for my items, a nice man put my items in my car. Since I have a new found passion for buying home decorating items from the Deseret Industries, I drove around the building to visit the D.I. My daughter says I'm a D.I. shopaholic. Yep, I admit it. The Home Storage Center is behind the D.I. Nice and convenient.

The Layton Home Storage Center is having an open house next month where you can learn about home storage (food storage), take a storage center tour, talk to a home storage expert, learn about long and short term products, get some home storage tips, and sample packaged foods. So if you are in the neighborhood, check it out:

I feel very blessed to live near a Home Storage Center. What a wonderful opportunity it is to build up our food storage supplies. I hope you are working on improving yours as well.


  1. Hello, I have been enjoying your blog and am interested in food storage. Thank you for posting all of the wonderful information. I am wondering though, do you have to be of the LDS faith to shop at the home storage center? I see they have one in Indy, and I will be visiting there soon.

    1. I believe members of other faiths may shop at Home Storage Centers. Call in advance to be sure. Good luck with your food storage goals!

    2. Mrs Holcomb, the home storage center is open to all. Here in NV they ask the area we live because they keep track of items sold in the area or ward. Hope that helps.

  2. I stopped by that location on Friday ( we just moved here). The gentleman that was helping us was so nice! I just need to oeganize my pantry and make out my list.

    1. You mean Home Storage Locations? Go to this link for a list of centers. Call in advance for hours and instructions.

  4. I was catching up on reading your blog and had to laugh. I just wrote a blog post on visiting the cannery in salt lake. I just didn't want you to think I was copying your idea :-) We must of had the same idea and felt prompted to get the info out there. Anyway,I love your blog and I am so inspired when I read it!!!

  5. Thanks for all of the information on your blog. I appreciate the help.

  6. I have a question about #10 cans. Are they full? I purchased some dehydrated strawberries and when I poured them out it was about 1 cup, the bag looked much bigger.

    1. Dehydrated strawberries from food storage companies look quite small in #10 cans. The LDS Home Storage centers do not sell them.


Thanks for your comments and suggestions!
