Just joined forum and Wife and I made first purchases rice/beans/ oats, cornmeal, flour etc. i went and bought 10 5 gal buckets from Home Depot. most of stuff just left in bag and put in buckets with tops on. As for the rice, bag was to big so poured rice in bucket put top on it. Now i am reading about "food quality buckets, moisture fears etc" is there something I should be doing to insure food stays dry/fresh free from spoil?? also thinking of investing in year worth of freeze dried products any particular brands stand out?? as for water have in
ground swimming pool (going to purchase water purifier what kind?? and have 5/6 water bottles from water dispenser. So any insights/guidance would be greatly appreciated

We still have not figured out how to keep brown sugar from getting hard. Mrs Inor bought about 10 bags of it a year or two ago when they were having a big sale. Now, she can either beat the bags with a hammer for 10 minutes when she wants to make cookies, or I can strap one to my chest for body armor. :)
I put my brown sugar into quart jars and seal with my food saver. It has never gotten hard and stays light and fluffy. I like the quart size because it seems like it is just the right amount for things like double batches of cookies and stuff like that.
