A thought I just had for sealing the 2 liter bottles. Save your old candles. When you have a bunch of stubs melt them in a can. After putting the cap on the 2 liter bottle, turn it upside down and dip it in the liquid wax and you have an instant seal. Just a thought.

I use the big glass canning jars to store my beans, rice and pasta. Suck the air out with a foodsaver, date it, and use what you store. This way I only buy my staples when they are on sale and I have plenty to last my family for months. I'm a big fan of flyer thursdays. :)

Between gallon glass jars, 3, 5, and 6 gallon food grade buckets with gamma lids, as well as the odd Tupperwear canister, our rice , beans, oatmeal seem to be keeping very well. Speaking of rice, our local Wholesale Club has Basmatti rice on really cheap this week. I have lots in stock so did not get any.

Karnit, thanks for the link! I'm not a huge fan of beans but the recipe on that site convinced me to get some for my stash. Right now, everything is in individual bags in a 5 gal pail (I didn't do the full amount suggested, maybe 15%) but will mix and put away in jars and "dry can" when time permits.
