According to various estimates the majority of Americans are unprepared for even small-scale disasters. Once it hits the fan, you have a few hours until your local supermarkets and convenient stores get stripped of valuable supplies. To give yourself a fighting change, you should consider making a survival stash using the proper cache containers.

What is a survival cache?

A cache is a long-term investment meant to provide you with help when all other options fail. Hiding your supplies means securing your valuables from an unwanted intrusion, but at the same time, it also means those supplies will be handily available in case you need them. Caching on the other hand means having a long-term storage that you may or may not need for months or even years.

Your cache should provide you with supplies, gear and other essential items that would become highly valuable during a crisis. You may one day need these for your survival so you should think of stashing your caches in proper locations. Future retrieval and use shouldn’t pose a problem even if time is against you.

Choosing cache containers

As you can imagine, you need a container to properly store all your supplies. There are various options available and just about any container can be used. However, if you use a plastic garbage bag, don’t expect the contents to remain dry and undamaged.  As a general rule, cache containers should withstand the following:

  • Moisture
  • Temperature extremes
  • Rodents and insects
  • The elements affecting your region

Keep in mind that you aren’t caching supplies for a short period of time. You should expect to retrieve your cache after 6 months or more. It’s a long-term investment and you shouldn’t touch those supplies unless you desperately need them.

Here are my suggestions for cache containers:
