Buckets of Staples Alone Are Not A Complete Food Storage System
Look at the photo. That is not food storage. At least, it is not complete food storage.
Generally, buckets contain bulk food items such as wheat, beans, rice, flour, sugar, salt, etc. If this is what your food storage consists of, you are in trouble. You must store more than just basic staples. In general, you must store what your family eats.
My food storage philosophy has always been to have a well-rounded food storage. Store basic staples in buckets, store freeze dried foods in #10 cans, such as Mountain House food, store dehydrated food in #10 cans and buckets, and store store-bought canned and home-canned goods.
Now, if you are someone who doesn’t like to mess with the basics, then you can get a freeze dried food system from Mountain House foods. All you need to add is hot water and let it stand for up to 10 minutes. It’s the ultimate in convenience.
However in most cases, it is nice to have a well-rounded food storage program. The choice is up to you. Find what your family enjoys and then store that.
