Most of my bulk items are stored in large mylar bags inside 5 gallon buckets. Once I open the 5 gallon buckets, I store the grains/beans, etc in half gallon Mason jars or mylar pouches.

I also have a NutriMill, which I could not live without!!!

What have you done to get started on your food storage?

I store my bulk goods in 5 gallon bucket, too! I'm looking into those cute little oxygen absorbers but haven't gotten there yet.

Jenn,
love your blog -- just discovered it. where do you get the Jerky and what kind do you buy? I'm working on 72 hour kits that must be gluten, casein, and soy free. thanks!

We have been getting our jerky at Sams's Club -- the Oberto brand. I'm pretty sure it has soy in it, though. Best of Luck!
