I get all that regular item, not LTS type. I end up drowning in it from couponing usually.

Muffin mix gets used fast. Pancake mix....not so much. Honestly I need to just start not buying pancake mix unless it's free & even then probably donate it. We just don't care for pancakes / waffles much because they always make both kiddo and myself feel like crud afterwards.

I bought the potato slices back in 2018 on a lark - think they had a coupon on Auguson & potato slices was the cheapest thing I thought we'd have use for. I was more of a "very well stocked" person until covid hit & pushed me over the edge to "prepper adjacent".
From the can.
*Best when stored in a cool dry place at temperatures between 55 Degree and 70 Degree F (ideal humidity 15%). *
* Potato slices (freshness preserved with sodium bisulfite). *

Ingredients are simple looks like. No oil added so they can advertise 25y shelf life.

Yes, I would open a can and give them a spin.
Do you have a crawl space under the house where it would be cooler for storage? Any place to put a root cellar?

No crawl space, no place to put a root cellar. Soil here is too rocky / sandy and water table too high when it does rain.

Hopefully it won't be a problem much longer if I can pull off the move. But we'll see.

39.17 - 25% off

At $4 a pound it is not a fantastic deal, but the bucket is convenient.
I bought 10 or so of those buckets in around 2015, and have been a good deal. We've opened 2.
First one we refilled our Quaker 42oz container with and put the lid back on. Kept that up until there was 1 refill left (five I think). That last refill was molded, so it had collected moisture while in the open bucket.
So lesson learned, the 2nd bucket I emptied the bucket by filling multiple Quaker containers and sealing with cling wrap.
We're close to opening up another bucket. Reason we are using these, is that these oats have a ten year shelf life, and there is no way we can use these up when they hit ten years old. So we started early with them.

I ordered some more and noticed it said the product normally “ships within 1 to 2 months“. I have found that is happening more as they struggle to keep up with demand. The good news is that you have greater assurance that you aren’t buying old warehouse stock.

I try and make note of the manf date when they come in. Most have been a month old, which stands to reason. The oldest I remember seeing has been 2 months.

Is there a benefit I'm not seeing to the Auguson Chicken Alfredo / Chicken Rice over Knorr packets or Pasta / Rice a roni?

At 14 servings for $29 that's nearly double the price of Knorr, even when you account for use of dry milk & butter/oil in Knorr kits. I get its LTS set up but Knorr packets last anywhere from 3-5 years in typical conditions and are easier to rotate.
