I absolutely love these containers for food storage.  I have several, in both sizes.  I actually want to purchase more of the smaller size.  I keep everything in them, my oatmeal which I purchase in bulk, my dog's dry kibble, my flour and sugar, pastas, rices, beans, coffee, all kinds of things.  They are wonderful.  I used a label maker and labeled each one so I know at a glance what is inside.  When I moved from Oregon to Nevada, it was so easy to pack up the kitchen.

Barb,

Something else you can do with the totes is to apply weather stripping to the lid to give you a tighter seal.

Sounds good. Funny, just today I was thinking about how to weatherproof more things which I would load up for a bugout -
or to take to the location...

Here is something to try also you can buy new empty paint cans to use for storage also.

I would recommend that you still seal food items before packing, but the price looks good.

I just typed in Lowes and searched for empty paint buckets, I guess you could try a search for any hardware store that is in you area.

Gallon Metal Paint Bucket $4.98

http://www.lowes.com/ProductDisplay?partNumber=60689-4-007.0060689.000&langId=-1&storeId=10151&productId=3172549&catalogId=10051&cmRelshp=req&rel=nofollow&cId=PDIO1

1-Quart Empty Paint Can with Lid $2.97

http://www.lowes.com/pd_27318-4-007.0027318.005_0__?Ntt=empty+1+gallon+paint+can&UserSearch=empty+1+gallon+paint+can&productId=3160031&rpp=32

Here is an article on the Ready Store web site.

How Much Food Storage Do I Need?

Written by Brandon Garrett
You know that food storage is important. But where do you begin? You might be asking yourself, “How do I start? And how much do I need?”

Like most worthwhile endeavors there is a learning curve when it comes to food storage, but don’t let that keep you from starting! Too often the perceived confusion and uncertainty of starting keeps individuals and families from being prepared. This post will take some of the pressure off of starting your food storage and help you understand how much you need.
