I think this is a good idea. I bought 20 buckets on eBay for my tomatoes. I think I should buy 20 more to store some food. I could store rice, beans, oats, corn flour, and medical supplies. Only store what you already like. And once you store it, use it...replacing what you use. A little rainy day supplies. Store seeds too. Don't forget to store coffee, tea, sugar, tooth paste and soap. If anyone wants to trade my fresh vegetables for rice, dried beans, coffee etc let me know.
