Space and Storage Calculator for Long-Term Food Storage
I know that those of you who are just beginning to put together your long-term food storage are often overwhelmed with not only how much bulk food to purchase but also how many 5-gallon buckets you'll need as well as how much space you'll require to store those buckets.
Since I had a little time today, I decided to code up a quick calculator for those of you who are beginning with this process.
Many of you have seen the previous calculator I put together which figures out the suggested long-term storage needs based on the amount of weeks and number of people that you want to store away for.
After you arrive at that number, this next calculator will tell you how many 5-gallon buckets you'll need to purchase in order to store all that food, as well as the amount of floor space (in square footage) you'll need based on how high you want to stack your buckets.Please let me know if you have any recommendations on improving this calculator as it is a work-in-progress.
