It was on this big flat cart, like you use at Lowe’s, and it totally filled up the back of my Tahoe (that was before Clyde – wait, you didn’t read the story about Clyde??).
As you can see, R.T. enjoys the wheat berries straight out of the bag!
All in all, we got:
- 3 bags of wheat (25 lbs. each)
- 1 bag of black beans
- 1 bag of white beans (great northern)
- 1 bag of sugar
- 1 bag of oats
- 1 box of potato flakes
- 1 box of rice
- 1 box of spaghetti
- 1 box of macaroni
- 1 box of powdered milk
- Plus a package of 100 Oxygen Absorbers to package with the food for storage
Naturally, we got home to discover that we didn’t have enough of the 5-gallon buckets accumulated to store it all! It’s been slow going getting them from the Commissary bakery, but I have a couple of other places to try now, so maybe we can get caught up.
I’ve also gotten in with a group of ladies on an order for combined shipping, to get some Gamma Lids – that will resolve my issues with a couple of buckets I have that are lidless, as well as making life easier in general. (They snap on with a gasket like the regular lids, then the center part screws open (but seals tight) for access).
That’s a lot of supplies! Time to organize the “pantry” space in the back hall closet…
