I don’t know where this Storage Barrel PDF originated, but it is a pretty good idea. I am a big believer in emergency kits, I have then in my car, my house, my land, my momma’s house, and few not to be named… My first 72 hour kit was a red cross kit in a corrugated box.
After a few years and practice runs the box was toast and the kit moved to a 5 gallon bucket. This was much sturdier and allowed the case itself to be useful.
5 gallon buckets can be used for so much during a disaster.
I hope this post on using a 5 gallon bucket to store your supplies is useful to you. I added a bunch of Amazon links to items that I feel make the basic 5 gallon bucket much more useful.
I know that I use buckets all around the home and land.
