if you look around some you can find buckets for free.
I make my own super pails. I was buying #10 cans when I saw the super pails. then I was only a little bit of time away from makeing my own super pails!! the average price for a 50 pound sack of rice, wheat, corn, and some others about $20 and that will fill 2, 1/2 pail. WOW
here is a pic of some pails ready to be filled, and a pic of some of my storage.. you can find just about everything prepaired to go in buckets. dry fruit, dry vegies, dry milk, potato flake, beans , grains. ON AND ON everything!!!
I use a clean bucket, metalized bags, oxygen absorbers, purge air with nitrogen, seal with a multy ridge seal bar, date and lable bucket. works great and fun to do togeather as a family!
anyone else filling their own super pails?
