My food storage plan

Tks... I'd never cook/microwave in plastic that's for sure... Nor big fan of long term liquid storage in them. But don't think there will be much of a problem with dry goods.
Also , my storage of these items are in a year or two before rotation and they get used.
Nice thing is if you do drop them, no problem, no mess Smile

Food grade buckets only for dry,if the plastic sweats it could transfer chems to dry goods.They make a bunch of different size ones.Try a local bakery or grocer,DO NOT get 5ga pickle buckets.Don't ask.'08.
If you look like food,you will be eaten.


I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

Lol.....pickle buckets.  I feel your pain brother.  I get around 25 or 30 every year from our high school cafeteria manager each summer.  Even packed in mylar bags your beans and rice will still smell like pickles.  No es bueno.
I've started using them to store chicken feed, cracked corn.  Haven't noticed my eggs smelling like pickles yet.
