Survivalist in Training
So my local bakery has been kind enough to save all their food grade buckets for me and thus far hasn't questioned why I continue to pick up an average of 10 per week although I am starting to get some looks lol. I've gotten quite a few 1 gal and a couple 5 gal buckets and I'd like to start filling them but I want to avoid any waste as far as O2 absorbers go when I open the package. Can anyone tell me how many pounds of beans/ rice/ pasta will fit into one 1 gal or 5 gal bucket? Also with egg noodles and other pasta that comes in plastic bags do you suggest keeping them in their original packaging before putting them into the mylar bags or taking them out? Is there a list anywhere that shows what foods are appropriate/recommended for long term (15yrs+) storage?
