    I oven can cereal, crackers, pretzels, oatmeal etc.. Works great for us. I can open up a quart or 1/2 gal jar of what we need. If it doesn't seal properly, few and far between, I use vac. seal. I have pint and quart attachment.

    I forgot to look yesterday at the amount per bucket . Sorry . Anyway along the same lines a friend of mine said she buys in bulk at Sam's club and Cost co and food saver (vacuum ) seals it in gallon glass jars with the jar attachment . She said she has used frosted flakes over a year past the best by date and taste as good and fresh

    Morg,

    I was thinking along the same lines. You can get the bagged no-name cereal really cheap at Wallyworld. You can get it cheaper in dollar stores and overstock places. I would be willing to bet buying in bulk and putting it into your own buckets would be financially cheaper. I'm going to look into it.

    I usually buy large bags of cereal at Wally World. The cost is about 0.12 cents per ounce. I wonder how this compares?
    I don't know but I will try to look at them when I get home today and get back to you . I have not used any of them yet as I too buy big bags at china mart

    I thought I was the only one to eat cereal like Jethro. Nasty, you are a kindred spirit. I will have to find some of these buckets.

    Looks interesting.

    91 servings, 1 cup serving size

    So this would be about one month for me. When I eat cereal I have a Jethro Clampett (well not that big, but...) bowl. Have to look into one of these as a test.

We already have the powdered milk. I will check to see which place has it the cheapest. I know the ready store puts it on sale sometimes. We have 5 grandkids and looks like that will be all the grandkids now.

    Countryboy, have you tried the cereal yet? Just wonder how it taste.
    Nope I have not tried it but was wondering too . I will probably wait till they put it on sale again and buy a few more and at that time open one of these to try them . Don't know when that will be but I will drop you all a note on here when I do .
