I found a place that is selling 5 gallon food grade buckets with lids for 2.00 each. My question is how many do you think I should get? Grains, legumes, dry milk, rice, beans. Three people. Or better yet does anyone know how many pounds there are in a 5 gallon bucket? For example I need 400 lbs of wheat 62 lbs of oats 125 lbs of rice. Then also has anyone had any problems with storing in buckets with o2 absorbers? I dont want to make any mistakes and ruin my storage food. How many absorbers are you putting in each bucket? Good site to purchase them? If its a food grade bucket do I need the mylar bags? Do you put the oxygen absorbers on a paper towel or anything? I have heard that you can really mess this technique up so I dont want to be one of those people. Any direction you can give will always be greatly appreciated. Planning on the huge food purchase in February (tax money) so want to get my ducks in a row so to speak.
