    Until around the 5th year of our prepping, I had never seen a weevil. Then they hit us like a plague. We had to throw away all the pasta stored in that location. All the pasta that is, that was in traditional boxes. The sealed plastic packs were unharmed. Our policy now is to only buy boxed...

    Ok I'm new to a lot of this stuff, but asking questions, reading post and learning a lot! But I'm up against a wall and can't come up with any good ideas, so I thought I would ask for help. Me and my wife are ready to start storing food away. Some we plan to buy, other we plan to dehydrate...

    Title says it all really. I live opposite a 24h hypermarket. I don't have much money (maybe, say, £20 to spend.. that's about $33). I don't have any storage facilities, pots or containers. So if you guys were in my situation.. what would you buy with that money? (only long shelf-life foods...

    SPAM gets a lot of praise as a great survival prep food, and deservedly so. We bought some canned salmon yesterday that had a "best by" date of Sep 2016 on it. I didn't realize it would keep that long! I like salmon almost as good as SPAM myself. But for those that don't like SPAM, salmon may...

    Anyone ever make their own? Was searching for dried egg/dairy products today (I need to figure out my eggs & butter solution...) and I'm came across this. http://www.ehow.com/video_7847017_make-own-powdered-eggs.html What do you all think? I'd make some minor modification, larger quantity...
  7. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Hey, all. I've started storing food in mylar with 100cc O2 absorbers and I'm happy to say, most of what I've put up has been successful with the exception of yellow corn meal. I put up two bags of it and it hasnt sealed up. I opened the bags and put another O2 absorber in, sealed it...

    Hey guys, I am proposing a food storage challenge here. For those who are getting started prepping, this is for you. Challenge: Store one 5 gallon sealed bucket of food a week for 12 weaks. It is not as hard as it sounds. You do need to get a few things. Oxygen Absorbers, Mylar bags, and...

    OK, I've been keeping a months worth of regular food in my house for years. I've done the mylar and 5 gallon bucket thing with some stuff. But I have never bought one of those package deals. You know, "3 months food for two, in big cans." One worry I have is menu planning. Do any of the...

    Just wanted to show off a few pics to the newbies. I am starting to get a little bored with all the newbie what if etc...threads. For some us here, this is not our first rodeo. I figure I have at least a years worth of food & supplies.

    I rented a #can sealer, it got here Friday, I also purchased 230 #10 cans w/ Oxygen absorbers. I packed pasta, four, sugar, beans, rice, ect.... Renting the can sealer worked out nice! Got it Friday, Fedex picked it back up on Monday...

    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...

    Now, mind you - I'm new at this and pretty much wigging out: I've been bugging my millionaire brother for a couple of months now to store food for his family. He watches 2 hours of business news every night and sees no reason why he needs to buy extra food. He says if the dollar is devalued by...

    Ok so as we all know Mountain House is backordered who knows how long, and u cant even place an order on most websites for there products. There is somewhere where i live that has #10 cans in stock, but that is dwindling down to nothing. So due to that fact i've been doin a lot of research on...

    How long will oats last for when stored in mylar bags with an oxygen absorber? I have some gallon mylar bags, I would like to fill them about half way with oats, seal, the fill the other half with oats. These are the cans of rolled Quaker oats that you can get from the local china-mart...

    I've started prep. and have about 4-6 months worth of can goods. Veggies, soups, etc. I also have a lot of seeds to plant my garden. What I don't have is the basics. Salt, flour, sugar, etc. Going to Sam's for the free weekend. What do you suggest I buy? Want to spend around $150. Will I...

    So I have figured out that my "pile it up" idea was just stupid. I am putting in shelfs in my basement, attached to the walls. But as I went along I got to thinking, earthquakes. Stuff shakes and move. So now I am thinking of cabinets. Building them myself of course. Have you priced them thing...
  18. Food and water
    I'm sure it's been discussed before, but the search function is hard to use on my smartphone. I think I'm going to be furloughed from my job soon, so I'm going to start making up 5 gallon buckets. I think I'm going to use 1 gallon mylar bags and put different stuff in one bucket. My question...
  19. Food and water
    Anyone have any cost data/rules of thumb for comparable servings for fruits, vegetables, meats etc for: Fresh (in season) Fresh (out of season--imported from a foreign country) Frozen Canned Dehydrated Freeze-dried (These contains vastly different amounts of water so this information is not...
