Long Term Storage

Today I added more goods to our long term storage. I buy in bulk from a co-op and then repackage in smaller quantities. Some items are stored in 5 gallon buckets, like wheat and white flour. Most everything thing else is put into Mylar bags with oxygen absorbers.

I purchased a 10 pound box of dehydrated refried black beans. What I will use in the near future was put into a 1/2 gallon mason jar and the rest were bagged up.
I like the bags with the zip top because once I open it I can still reseal it. A friend showed me a cool trick on sealing the bags with a flat iron. It is so much easier than using a regular iron! Still have 25 pounds of pintos to do!
