I'm trying to find out about powdered milk. Can it be stored in mylar too, or would it go rancid? The powdered milk we bought is non fat. Does this make a difference?

With as many threads on food storage as this site has running at any given moment, you'll get more info browsing them than you will in this thread.

I put almost anything dehydrated in mylar with O2 absorbers. Beans, grains, pasta, powdered potatoes, powdered milk and such are the basics of my food storage. But I have a bunch of other stuff stored in mylar too such as dried veggies, fruits, spices, etc.

All of the above. Also planning to experiment with storing non food items in the BOB like matches and socks. Just to keep them dry until needed.

Powdered milk will store for 1 year in manufacturers packaging...however the biggest "killer" of powdered milk is light & temperature. By sealing it in mylar bags you are preserving it 2-3 fold (and keep between 55-70 deg). The fat content does make a difference- dried whole milk will not store as well as the non-fat dry milk because of the fat content, so what you have is good.

The dried milk has alot of air volume so you'll want to use a few extra oxygen absorbers in your mylar bags than with your rice or beans. But plan on rotating it or donating it every two years because it just won't keep very long. I personally would buy the #10 cans of it, which are hermetically sealed & guaranteed to 5 years (Honeyville Farms).
