Love the newsletter. Do you have rodent-proof containers that you like for dry foods?

Thank you, and good question!

Rather than go out and buy something (because so much of prepping is centered around that buying and consumption) I reuse old tea tins for dried beans and lentils. They're not airtight, but I have been buying small bags of dried goods rather than a whopping bucket like some preppers (which is absolutely fine, just not where I'm at for space right now), so I slip the whole bag into the tin and shelve it.

I realize I'm late to the story, but I tend to use mason jars. I can a lot, but have plenty of extra to store lentils, quinoa, spices--whatever. I also reuse jars that are not the right lid size for canning, like old pasta sauce jars. I go with glass whenever possible to deter mice and bugs.
