searched local Craigslist for food grade.
 Found a place that is selling them used for $2 a piece with lids and it's only 1/4 mile from where i work. 8)

Cool.    Good find.

Most of the decent (ie: no pickle smell) local sources here have dried up, so I've been buying them new at Lowes for $3.58 plus $1.15 for the food grade lid.

I've been pretty fortunate in my area too, finding quality food grade buckets.   Actually, this is a good reminder to go buy more. :)

Walmart and Menards are selling food grade buckets and lids.

Gamma seals are great for the places you realy need them, buckets you open multiple times a day. They are ant and moisture resistant and easy to open. So, I have them for buckets I use constantly, and for Long term storage, use the regular lids

I'm thinking I may get about 3 of them then. For buckets that we will use in the house often.
Corn, wheat, and rolled oats. Maybe 1 for coffee beans also.

Thanks

That's what I do--the sugar, rice, flour & wheat berries For the kitchen have gamma seal.  The long term stuff sealed in Mylar just has the regular lid.
