I've finally got the buckets, mylar bags, and O2 absorbers ready to go so I'm trying to figure out what I want to store in them. I thought to do mixed buckets, so I can basically open 1 a year to rotate through the food..I think that will be easier than opening a 5 gallon bucket of just rice! Anyone do this, and what did you choose to put in your buckets? I'm packaging 10 buckets, so the supplies inside we need to be able to last 10 years. So far I want to put white rice, TVP, and sugar in it. I thought of dried beans too, but don't know how they'd do after 10 years. Please give me your opinions! I have other food storage (canned goods, boxed mixes) so this is not my only supply, it just be my long term stuff. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
