How To Manage Buckets of Food for Daily Use
With food prices constantly rising, many people are turning to buying in bulk and storing the extra in buckets. Managing buckets for the food you use on a daily basis can be a challenge, especially if you have limited space. One of the most common challenges is how to use that bucket of food without having to drag it out every time you need a cup of something, like flour.
There are concerns that the food will go bad before you use it all, and rightly so. It’s important to make sure the things you buy in bulk are things you use on a regular basis. If you rarely bake, 5 gallons of flour and sugar may not be the best choice for you but a 5 gallon bucket of beans, is. There is no ultimate list that fits everyone. Each home is unique and what you buy needs to be tailored to you and your family’s needs and preferences. Never buy food you don’t normally eat for a SHTF situation!
