Surprise Finds

The dust has settled and the First 72 Hours have passed. Follow along as I build a long term plan via Prudent Prepping.  

While searching for an item through the Home Depot portal, I misspelled the word and found Augason Farms food pails! The assortment is good, but unfortunately Home Depot (like pretty much everywhere and everyone) is currently out of stock. I even did some checking and there is no restocking date. The only item in inventory seems to be a 100 count box of 125 mL Emergency Water pouches, and they aren't even an Augason brand.

From the Augason Farms website, here are the water barrel specs:
Water is the first product to sell out at grocery stores in the days leading up to and during an emergency. Be sure your family has plenty of water in an emergency with an easily-accessible supply of safe, potable water for drinking, cleaning, cooking, and sanitation. Don’t forget to pick up water treatment drops to ensure your water is free of bacteria, viruses, and cysts. Augason Farms 55-gallon Water Barrel is BPA-free and produced from food grade Polyethylene.

Barrel Specifications
  • 55-gallon food grade water barrel
  • BPA-free
  • Stackable
  • 22.95" diam. x 35.13"h· 18.2 lb.
It appears that this is also unfortunately out of stock, but you may be able to source all the parts to build something similar elsewhere.

Recap and Takeaway
  • The Home Depot is probably the very last place I would look for emergency food, but here it is! When the pails were available, the prices were very competitive.
  • I can see a water barrel being on the Home Depot site, since it joins water troughs and tanks as livestock-related items.
