Jodi’s Water Storage Evolution

Water
When we first started our food storage adventures, I had 6 two liter bottles full of water for my water storage. Over the last almost 4 years I've gone through several different methods of water storage based on my needs and budget at the time. Below is what I consider my water storage evolution: Getting started - FREE water storage containers Before I ever REALLY thought about food storage I had at least made a set of 72 hour kits for my family and include two liter bottles full of water to go with them.
