  1. Food and water
    The importance of long term food storage is increasing as one may run into natural disaster or emergency. If you are preparing for the possibility of a food shortage or disaster, you need to have the necessary materials for long-term food and product storage. Long term food storage requires...

    I tend to be a bit OCD when it comes to researching products to use when doing long term food storage with mylar. I am fairly new to it so I am learning by trial and error. For example, searching the net for the best prices--and there are a LOT of sellers out there...trying to figure out what...

    I am new to prepping but I have been reading up on it for quite a while. I finally started accumulating supplies (prepping on a budget). I have a prepping partner who I do a fair amount of trading with and we pool our resources to get things done, like today. We each provided food and split...

    Well I am fairly new to the forum so hello to all! I have been quietly reading a lot of posts, and decided to start my food storage. I purchased roughly 100 Ball Mason jars, mostly quart sized some pint sized, and I have Foodsaver jar lid sealers, a brakeline handpump, and 300cc oxygen...

    I got 20 mylar bags that i need to fill. I am new to this mylar bag business. Would a 25 lb bag of rice fill all 20 bags? I'm not sure the gallons to lbs ratio. BTW I do have O2 obsobers.
  8. Food and water
    Hey all, I want to store some flour. Is there a certain kind better than others? It should all keep if it's vacuumed and an O2 absorber added right? Thanks!
  9. Food and water
    Ok guys, i'm new to this and have been doing some reading and searching archives. Can you vacuum seal mylar bags and put an absorber in them? Or are mylar bags with an absorber good enough? And also, how do you seal the mylar bags? Never used them obviously but my wife and I are just...
  10. Food and water
    Ok so I now have some mylar bags, oxygen absorbers, and some food grade 5 gallon buckets. I am now researching what foods I should start with. I came across a website in an effort to find a list. What I did find was a list of items not to store... this just happens to be almost the exact list...

    Has anyone else had trouble with some of the oxygen absorbers in a packet not working, while others do? I've opened 3 packages of them from one order (300cc and 1,000cc). Some of the absorbers will take all of the oxygen out of the mylar bags and others leave various amounts of oxygen in the...

    Got a question.I'm not exactly a stranger to packing grains,legumes and dried foods in mylar bags....but I've run into a snag. Last night I packed up some limas and dried tomatoes in gallon size mylar bags,threw in a 500 cc drier let 'em set over night. This morning I checked on them and they...
  14. Reviews & Questions For Vendors
    Just received a pkg of 100 300cc absorbers. The bag they are in still has air in it. I can't push it out so it seems like the bag is sealed. Not sure if I want to rely on these or not. Any good? Thanks BIH

    I'm going with dehydrated food. I live on a farm and will do most of this myself. Where is the best place to get o2 packs, mylar, buckets and so-on? I will be using these for food and supply storage and hope to get the max longevity I can.

    Good Friday is here, finally. This means that we get a three day weekend - well, most of us anyway. My wife and I are both off for Good Friday, by my step-daughter has to work. Last weekend my 2 youngest kids and I were talking them coming back to my house for Easter, but it looks like...

    Les talk about homemade superpails. Last week I ordered 5 - 5 gallon mylar bags, last weekend my wife and I picked up 40 pounds of pinto beans. Over the weekend we are probably going to pick up some rice, maybe 40 pounds or so. This is the game plan so far: Superpail #1 - Pinto Beans. Pinto...

    Went to Sam's. Got my 50 lbs. bags of sugar, beans, and rice, and boxes of salt. In the freezer now for 72 hrs. to prevent any weevils. Now what? I need to store and think I'm going to use Mylar, 02, and buckets. Is there a certain company you suggest? Best bang for the buck?
