Thinking again :) of doing like a 52 buckets not for the sake of putting a week's worth food in each one. Maybe enough flour to make couple loaves fresh bread per week, develop a routine stay in practice of making fresh bread once a week, alternate grains every fourth bucket (fourth week) have Rice and beans, keep a good variety try to keep some healthy options. Endless possibilities and eating better, I am Guy and cooking cleanup etc is work, would rather dig a hole than do laundry and kitchen cleanup but the reward is feel better eating what I call real food. For people new to long term storage like myself it will help keep a check on using food and keeping a nice consistent rotation, and it will become like healthy routine. Add your garden food your producing saving money buying in bulk and eating healthy fresh raw foods more often. Keeping long term storage in consistent rotation. I assume most with experience already have a their own system in place. Any tips?? Ideas?? Consistently refilling the buckets using them weekly, not focused on 7 days worth just some meals snacks and using fresh foods, even if you have dogs maybe put three cans dog food per bucket, I have four dogs so I sometimes add few spoons of wet food to their dry, so you keep their extra food in rotation as well. Thanks for reading my post maybe it will inspire someone to perfect or share their system they use currently.
