What sort of options are availabel for waterproof storage of bulk goods? I've been slowly stockpiling foodstuffs and supplies for disaster readiness, and have exhausted the small amoun t of space we have in our kitchen cupboards. We don't have any available closet space as of yet (have to go through and sort what we actually use versus what we're just storing for no reason). My garage isn't a good idea, as it's not attached to the house, and cans and jars would routinely freeze in the winter and reach high temps in the summer. My last resort is my basement. The problem here is that it's a "wet" basement. Lots of moisture in the air, and should the power go out for an extended period, it actually fills with a foot of water due to the sump pumps not running and the battery backup running out of juice. If I were to use the basement for storage, is there any waterproof solution I can use to keep cans and jar lids from rusting due to the moist air? I can get the stuff up off the floor easily enough, but am not sure how the moisture would affect them. Storing rice and grains down there is an invitation for mold and spoilage. Doe anyone use waterproof boxes or trunks?
