Still looks a little pricey, you are paying extra for the bucket, if you don't need the air seal, you could pay far less unless you want the long shelf life.621 Total Servings of Lentils Emergency Food Bucket By Shelf Reliance® THRIVE?
They were gone for a while, but they are back. At $75 a bucket its still only .13 cents a serving (though a serving probably needs to be doubled) this
to me is one of the "best buys" in preparedness.
If I only had a $130 to spend the lentils and the white rice would be great long term fillers to go with what ever you can harvest/shoot/trap
380 Total Servings White Rice 42 lb. Bucket Emergency Food Storage By Shelf Reliance® THRIVE?
50 cents a pound is around what I am use to paying, and this is like $1.50/pound. The benefit is the 25 year life span, I don't really plan for long term storage much nothing much over 3 years, as anything that has me needing emergency food for more than 3 years is pretty damn serious. spending $10 on 10kg of lentils should do me for a few months. These seem a little expensive I think you could DIY for less here simply by buying the lentils and a airtight bucket to put them in.. still not bad but I'm thinking it could be done for less.
Same for the rice a 8kg bag of rice should cost less than $10 so 42 lbs is like less than $30.. something not right with those prices.
prices for these products are like atleast 2x what you can get the product for.. any extra price is for the container imo.
