    I couldn't believe it. My favorite was the 25 pounds, assorted types including rice for $150. I have just taken it for granted because my Walmart has been OK but WTF?

    I have several trunks of reserve dry goods (rice, corn, beans, etc) that I packed about 3 yrs ago. Back then, I broke everything down into 5 pound increments, vacuum sealed, then placed the sealed bag into a Mylar bag with O2 absorbers and then heat sealed. My reasoning was, in case the vacuum...
  3. Food and water
    As I was about to store some foods in 5 gallon buckets a few days ago I started really thinking about when the time came to use the foods. I am currently only storing foods for 4 people. With that in mind, I would conceivably only be cooking these foods for 4 people. I do not want to have to...

    How are you folks storing your beans and rice and the like? Would like to store a good bit of each but want to make sure I do it right. Don't want them going bad. The big bags of dried beans you can purchase at Walmart or Sam's club. Do you just place them in a water proof plastic bin or...

    Here is a money saving tip. I love Christmas not for the presents but because of the 3 ltr bottles one can buy at the store filled with soda or steal from the neighbors recycle bin( is it relay stealing?). My wife and I live in the country we get mice. Mice chew into everything including...

    Greetings, I just saw a few videos on youtube about the guy packing his own food. His rice became buggy and he put it into the freezer to "sanitize" it. I know I asked a few questions already, but I want to make sure and I got darn good answers here. :thumb: I think those questions may help...

    I know you guys are into stockpiling, but has anyone here ever considered stockpiling Ramen noodle soup? It is cheap, easy to make, very filling, light and portable. I also assume it keeps for a long time. It can be boiled to make into noodles or crushed with the seasoning added raw to make a...

    Ok, for you people that buy bulk beans and flour, how are you killing the weevil eggs? Several months ago my wife opened a bag of beans that had not been frozen, only to find several weevils crawling around. Since then I have started deep freezing all of my bags of beans before they go into...

    I'm coming up with a list of foods that don't require refrigeration or cooking that can be stored for long periods of time and can be rotated out. This is a list that I've come up with so far: Canned Foods (limited to individual serving sizes or eating the entire contents of a larger can in...

    My wife got a bag of dried beans out last night. When she dumped the beans into a bowl of water, several weevils can to the top. I said it was ok to cook them, but he decided not to, so we got a another bag of beans out. Our ancestors must of thought pretty bad about weevils to give them a...
