Waste or mistakes never happen in a farm kitchen.....only future animal or plant food.

Cheap Emergency Water Storage

We use a lot of vinegar for cooking, cleaning, etc.  Hence, we generate a lot of empty 1 gallon plastic vinegar bottles.  As they are emptied, they are refilled with drinking water and put in almost always dark corner of the basement.  The containers are already sanitary and the dark keeps the sun from reacting with the plastic.

We had to dip in a few months ago when the power went out for a day during a prolonged heatwave.

I like being prepared.
