I have a question too. If I gather the 5 gal cooking oil containers from work, they are recycle code 2, food grade. Wash them thoroughly, how long could I expect city tap water to last before rotating out the water? Searched some and got conflicting 3 mos to 1 year before additional treatment would be needed. Check with your local restaurants, see what days they change out their fryers. They have excellent capacity and are free. So no economic impact on my income to have some in storage. They have handles so relocating them within the home for storage is a cinch. The food buckets are harder to come by, most employees get first dibs so I rarely get those. Am using those for storing dehydrated food packets cause they seal so well. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
I hear you and I know exactly what you are saying. Times are tight and most people are feeling the pinch. I use coupons (paper & on-line), I shop sales, Craig's List and thrift shops. Yard sales have great stuff to go into your emergency supply box. I just got a Red Cross emergency radio (solar) that was on sale & used a $10 off coupon that I signed up for.

I am totally not prepared. I don't even know where to start..other than the link you provided...however, I don't have the money for all that. I have been talking to a lot of my friends and family lately and none are prepared for anything..we all seem to be living payday to payday with barely enough food to hold out the two weeks in between..Some of my family live here in midwest others live in california..other than food and gas to last the payday..there is nothing left anymore
