Airtight Bulk Food Storage Containers For Long Term Storage
You can not set up any long term food storage system with a large quantity of food without using airtight bulk food storage containers. These containers can be used to keep food fresh for a relatively long period of time because you are using airtight plastic Gamma Lids to seal up the containers. These containers can also be used to keep a ready short term supply of food so that there is always something in the house even at times when you cannot get to a food store for some reason or another. This is called emergency food storage.
Many people living in modern times take the food supply for granted and do not see the importance of storing food. But many years ago the ancestors of those people were dependent upon a ready supply of fresh food, and that supply could easily be interrupted by a short term disaster. One extremely bad harvest could mean a food shortage for many months, and there was never any way to protect against this. Modern food storage methods allow for the possibility of building up stocks any time there is a surplus to be had.
But since the financial collapse of 2008 and because of the rapidly increasing inflation of food prices more people are looking for ways to store food. This has to all be done very discreetly because if you store food to live on and the rest of your neighborhood starts starving during the coming food shortage, you will be in just as much danger from violent crime as you would have been from hunger had you not stored food. So do not tell anyone what you are doing and store away the most long lasting food you can find, and use airtight storage containers which are easy to stack.
Even if your worldview does not include a disaster scenario, it is wise to set up a cheap bulk food storage sytem for other reasons. Buying food in bulk can make it far easier to plan your life, as you will not need to make trips to the food store because you have no food left in the house. You can store different foods to make sure you get the nutrients you need, but obviously there are limits on the length of time you can store fruits and vegetables without fundamentally altering their character.
Bulk storage of food using cheap airtight bulk food storage containers can not only save you money on the price of the containers themselves, but you will also be able to purchase food when it is on sale and put it away until you wait for the next sale to take place again. This works best with grain, oats, and similar food which lasts for a good length of time, and which fluctuates in price due to harvest times. Buy at the cheapest price, and take advantage of any sales to top up your cheap bulk food storage containers.
