Preparedness Part 2I never labled the first blog as "Part 1" because I didn't realize I would continue the topic. Sunday night I ordered a few cans of food from Emergency Essentials along with 5 mylar bags for 5 gallon buckets. I intend to do long term dry good storage. After my appointment Monday I went to the container store here and bough 5 buckets with lids for $21.
Then I headed to Sam's Club to buy dry goods in bulk. When stored properly these foods can keep for up to 30 years in sealed mylar bags within the buckets. I grabbed some sugar, flour, baking soda, water & rice (from Wal-Mart).
I also grabbed some other essentials like Nesquik, fruit cocktail, broth and canned veggies.
I've started it. I feel better about things now. I was quite surprised at how little it cost to get this small stash going.
