That same bucket is available in the Walmart Paint dept for $2.96. They have lids, not gamma, for a dollar and change.

Thanks for all the replies folks. Also, I feel like I need to maybe take it easier on stuff since I managed to crack that lowes bucket. I like the sound of throwing gamma lids on a few buckets. As cool as the gbu drums sound, gotta build up from a 2 week supply of emergency food first.

If your food is pre packaged you don't need food grade containers since your food is already in food grade containers. If these are going to be stored in your home under climate control the buckets at Home Depot will work. I bought bury tubes for some of my food stores but with the idea that if I need to bug out I may have to cache some of my stuff. I also bought several 30 gallon barrels for the same reason.

The only plastic buckets that I’ve had that became brittle were stored outside in sunlight.

Sunlight and food storage don’t go together.

I use kitty litter buckets. They're free, have lids and stack really well because of thier square shape.
Everyrhing inside is individually packaged

You can buy brand new buckets - 1,2, and 5 gallons with lids- at Benjamin Moore Paint stores and they are really 10X better than a Lowe's or HD bucket.

Repeat use of a citrus based cleaner has worked best for me in eliminating the smell.

I think that's what I'm going to do. We stocked up with enough stuff to last is a while but I'm a little concerned with things unprotected from pests (rice, snacks for kids, crackers, etc). Square cat litter buckets would work perfectly.
