It looks like it is being done right, but....

I am not inclined to pack away many food buckets any more. I have a couple weeks worth of real food, then a month or more of dehydrated food. If things are bad after that, I should leave this location.

Good link, thanks.

Been wanting to put some buckets together for awhile never got around to it. This reminds me to get to it.

That's typically the route that I go too. They do look like they have a good approach though.

I buy those canned veggies at costco by the 12 pack. Keep 5-6 different veggies on hand and 1 full unopened (in addition to any open) 12 pack of them at a time.

I also keep 20 pounds of rice, 20 pounds of dried beans, crisco, and canned and dried meats as well.

I make sure to keep 90 gallons of water on hand as well.

If that stuff doesn't last, something is real bad wrong. I call myself a "reasonable" prepper though. I'm not prepping for a mad max style future. More So for serious storms, riots and the like.

All that said, I do keep a 30 day supply of MREs for the wife and I on hand, which are really only for bugging out.

That's one of the best summaries I have read.

My multis are instant oats, rice, and beans of assorted varieties.

I do need some Salt/sugar buckets, and the orange drink mix was a nice idea.

We did a dozen hand out buckets like this. We didn't put the water treatment chems in. But did add a sheet with instructions for how to use and prep the food stuffs, and how to prep water in several ways.

As far as buying pre-packaged from a supplier, some do, some don't, some do some.. lol

In our house we have a pretty good spectrum of LTS options and types. From home canned to MRE's, and everything in between.

Thanks for the post. There is a lot of good information and thoughts on prepping food there.

My wife got like 100 food grade buckets with lids for about $2/ea. They had honey in them, but we cleaned them out and use them to store grains (wheat, rice, oats, popcorn, etc) and other stuff.
