    I am looking for mylar bags and oxygen absorbers for 5 gallon buckets. Does anyone know where I can buy these locally? Preferably in Hillsboro or Beaverton. Thank you. :thumbup:

    I got This as it makes more sense to have multiple smaller bags that you would open as you need.

    Both my local Winco stores have 300cc oxygen absorbers for the best price I have seen. I think they were about $5 for a 50 count bag. Cheapest price on ebay for the same is $12.85 shipped.

    Uline, the most awesome place in the universe carries them in any quantity and size you might want:

    Uline: Search Results

    However, for O2 absorbing just use a chemical hand warmer (same thing pretty much).

    Honestly, for my use, whenever I'm bagging stuff, I don't do a whole bucketful, I will bag a few items that I'm going to eat together, with an O2 absorber (or purged with CO2 or nitrogen) and then pack those in the bucket, that way when you open the bucket to pull out a meal, you are not opening the whole darn thing.

    Thank you all for the answers you have given me. HBIII and AMProducts, I have never thought about using multiple smaller quantity bags. Thank you for the suggestion, I am going to have to rethink my plans a little.

    You can buy larger ones and cut them down and heat seal the cut edges with a mylar sealer,

    I bought a craft paper cutter from walmart, and cut down my one gallon bags, so I could package individual meals or smaller items. It time consuming and a lot of work but worth.

    I also bought a digit scale from freight and package a lot of pasta, sugar and salt by ounces, it is a trial and error meth to get the pouches to the right size without too much waste, but when it is all said and done, the work and time in my opinion was worth it.

    I believe the LDS home storage centers sell both the bags and oxygen absorbers

    You can also check at Healthy Harvest -- they are having their going out of business sale. Healthy Harvest - 40% Discount Sell

    I bought about 30 mylar bags and they had a lot of bags and buckets left. Check it out.
