Are you feeling adventurous? Wanna be frugal and recycle empty food containers? This post is for you 🙂
If you have empty #10 food storage cans lying around, there are so many uses for these once they are opened, at which point they can’t be resealed like a bucket. The main post doesn’t actually have 101 uses laid out, but there are a ton of additional suggestions in the comments you can check out, too.
If you do not buy the bigger #10 cans, you can always go to your local LDS food bank and buy them there. I am not sure how much they are but they will be worth every penny. Check out all of the 101 uses and see if you can finally find a home for your cans.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
