    Hi all, I am looking for somewhere to buy mylar bags, oxygen absorbers and maybe some food grade buckets that are reasonably priced. I live in Montana so I am also looking for a place that has good shipping rates too. Thanks in advance! Louie

    Got the gallon mylars with the O2 absorbers on E-bay, 60 of em was 31 dollars an free shippin (ok, we now the shippin be figured in the price) so just a tad over 50 cents a bag. Not much more en what I pay local fer the regular gallon vac bags.

    We use the gallon size then put em in a food grade bucket with a good lid. That way we don't have ta open a large mylar bag if all we need be in a gallon bag.

    Don't know if anybody got a better deal, if so, share please!:D

    The best price I"VE found for 5 gallon buckets w. lids is Home Depot or Lowe's @ 3.54.

    Deli's have them for $1 here if you want to clean or search for them; I particularly like the 2 gallon buckets they have.

    Hope this helps.

    The LDS site has foil pouches and O2 absorbers for a good price:

    Online Catalog - Home Storage

    Also, you should add a couple dried Bay leaves to every bag or container of your dried goods to prevent bugs.

    I had a great transaction with Vackpack.com. Their prices are very competitive -- especially when you buy in bulk -- and they are discrete with their shipping. They use plain boxes, nothing that screams "Hey! I'm buying SHTF Emergency Supplies!!!!!"

    Hand warmers are on clearance at my local walmart. I didn't have enough on me, but I'm going back to clean them out. No shipping costs. :)

    Yeah, that's my beef with Emergency Essentials. Love their stuff, but really, can at least one side of the box not scream SURVIVALIST! :p

    When you order, in the special instructions box, ask them to send it in unmarked box, they will.

    I would never have guessed! Thank you - I'll do that next time.

    (I wonder if they have buckets that aren't marked, too, lol)
