Grab and Go Cooking Bucket

Gallon Bucket With Lid – Want a Free One?
If you are planning to bug-out in case of an emergency situation, do you have all of your cooking equipment gathered together? Suggestion, get a 5-gallon bucket (like the one to the right, or a bright-orange bucket from Home Depot IF you don't mind being bright and visible!) and store these items:
  • Cooking pot with a lid (pot first in bucket, rest of items nested in and on top of it. The lid will be on top of all items in bucket)
  • Mixing bowl (nested in pot)
  • Aluminum foil (for easy clean-up from cooking)
  • Matches, lighters, fire-starters
  • Can opener (test it to make sure it won't fall apart!)
  • Utensils for eating and cooking
  • Dishes for eating: bowls, mugs, plates
  • Pot holder(s)
  • Dish towels
  • Soap for washing dishes
IF you have any room leftover, nestle into corners small packages of dehydrated fruit and veggies, protein bars, bacon pieces, SPAM or tuna singles, etc. Use every bit of space, but don't weigh it down too much so you can easily carry it for a long period of time.

Thanks for the notes, Shayla!
