  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have a question about sugar. I bought a 50 lb bag, then seperated it into smaller food saver bags, and sealed the food saver bags without vacuum sealing it. I plan on putting these bags int a plastic storage tub. If I buy 10 lb bags of sugar, I leave them in the paper bag and put them into...

    We are pretty rural. We're about 90 miles from a Sam's Club and have no Costco. Does anyone know a good place to purchase bulk sugar or salt? We've bought a lot of things from LDS and Pleasant Hills but they didn't carry salt or sugar or if they did, I couldn't find it. I don't mind driving...

    Do I need to add oxygen absorbers to my salt and sugar mylar bags? There are very different opinions on shelf life of sugar and salt. Some sources show they have an indefinite shelf life, while others say 6 months. I am planning to store them in sealed mylar bags in buckets and I live in a...
