Default Life Support

In Book-2 it states a per-jump fee for life support (as it turns out, 77 edition states 2K per stateroom --- occupied or not, while later editions state 2K per person on board), regardless of edition my question is how much of this 'stuff' can be stacked?

I ask as a ship may find itself in a position where it must jump into an open parsec in order to reach a destination world, more so with lower jump capable craft (such as a Jump-1 subsidized merchant) so if it's truly a per-jump rule you're not going to find and replenish that stuff everywhere (to this I would also add lower class starport that lack facilities) and if it truly is per jump then you eventually find yourself stranded.

So how much, if possible, can be "stacked" and how much space does it take up? I.e. can I stow a few months of LS in my scout/courier attic or do I need to chew up some hold space to stow it?
