    I am just beginning to prep. Thinking about food storage, and living in N. Tx., I am concerned about storage of food in case power goes out for long (or even relatively short) period of time. Won't the heat ruin many if not all foods designed / packaged for long shelf life. How are those of...

    I'm not sure I did it right. I wanted to use 1 gallon bags since I think it's a much more manageable size for my family. Anyway, I had seen a guy on youtube seal up 1 gallon bags with his foodsaver, which I thought was brilliant so I tried it. I couldn't get it to vacuum, which I found out...

    I have been broke more often than not in my life. With food storage preps, it is much less traumatic when a wage earner gets laid off, injured, arrested, dies, or becomes very ill. When the car dies or is in an accident, tires need replacing, the roof springs a leak, there is a fire or...

    going to try and kick things into overdrive this year. Would like to try and store dry goods in 2 liter pop bottles. I really like the idea of not having all my beans in one basket. If I split a 5 gal bucket of beans into 2 liter bottles, I think it may be easier to use and deal with if we do...

    Well, after patience and saving, I am taking part of my vacation this week to clean out a room in the basement to be my permanent prep pantry. I am going to insulate it, ensure it is secured (doors have locks), prevent light and then run a wall A/C unit to it (the exterior will be facing the...

    I guess I'm just confused about the methods of storage. Do you use a vacuum sealer first, then put the food in mylar bags, throw in the O2 absorbers and then all that in a sealed food bucket? If I dehydrate green beans, do I put them in a vacuum bag and then inside a mylar, throw a couple of...

    My neighbor, who is into community gardening, gave me 2 large :eek: shopping bags full of assorted salad greens, and a bunch of scallions. I know how to process the scallions, but can anyone tell me how (if it is possible) to dehydrate the salad greens? :confused: I can't eat all of them before...

    From "Pragmatist" in a neighboring prep forum: "In designing a food storage room, the idea came to me that I really have no idea what the volume for 1 years worth of food is. So I decided to figure it out. But first I had to make some assumptions. - 1st Assumption: Caloric intake would require...
