Important Concepts to Remember

Found an article entitled "Seven Major Mistakes in Food Storage" by Vicki Tate at LDS Living Magazine. The article covers "seven important concepts to remember while planning your food storage program." There is also a "Getting Started" segment. Below that is some helpful information regarding "Water Storage" authored by Scott Pedersen, Vicki Tate, and Barry Crockett.

Speaking of water storage...many thanks to my wonderful husband for finding a home for our two 55 gallon water barrels purchased a few weeks ago! He made room by the water heater in our home and built a platform to keep them off the floor. My sweet daughter helped me wash and rinse them out. (That is a task I'm grateful to have completed -- although it was kind of fun to roll them back and forth on the floor while we were rinsing them out.) My husband filled them with fresh water after they were positioned in their final resting place. It feels great to have that project completed!

Do you have a link for the water barrels or can you tell us where you/they can be purchased?

I purchased my water barrels several weeks ago from Maceys (a Utah grocery store) for $39.99 each (reg. $63.99 ea.) This price is effective through Tuesday, January 27, 2009.

I googled "55 gallon water barrels" and found some sites that had them listed from $99 each to $150! I don't think I can recommend any of them because they seem so over-priced.

If you live close to a Maceys, they would be a great place to purchase 55 gallon water barrels (save yourself 24 bucks per barrel.) If you don't, make sure you shop around to get the best price. Prices can really vary.
