Let’s say as a prepper you just scored a great deal on some food items and you want to add them to you long term SHTF food storage! Consider the ziplock mylar bag if you might want to go in and out of the bag occasionally before during or after any apocalypse 😉
Here I used the 1 gallon ziplock mylar bags.
I buy my bags from random dealers either on ebay or amazon. I search for “ziplock mylar bags”.
These bags extend the shelf life of food significantly. Sugar should store indefinitely in this manner. The mylar bag protects form light and moisture and bug infestation from exterior invasion. You may want to place your mylar bags in a 5 gallon plastic bucket to prevent rodent invasion.
If I do use an oxygen absorber in a mylar bag ( I do not do this for cereal since it will make the cereal hard) I would use a 300cc oxygen absorber. I buy these in bulk also on ebay and amazon from random dealers offering the best price at the time 🙂
Check your Dollar Tree to see what you might need that you might have coupons for, then set it up for long term food storage.
To your health, longevity and peace of mind,
The Healthy Prepper 🙂
