Ready Store Simply Essentials 1-Year Food Supply

EasyPrep Simply Essentials 1 Year Supply

The Ready Store Simply Essentials 1-Year Food Supply is similar to bucket offerings from vendors such as Wise Company and Food For Health. All freeze-dried and dehydrated food comes in mylar pouches in 16 stackable buckets.

Product Description

The Ready Store Simply Essentials 1-Year Food Supply (formerly the 12-Month Easy Prep Bundle) is the Ready Store’s answer to the Food For Health or Wise bucket packages. This food storage system stacks up nicely against those rivals, and this is how we scored it:

Price per calorie

The price per calorie score of this package is 218 calories per dollar. This package works out to about 1,200 calories a day, which is not quite enough to keep an adult fed. Please note, The Ready Store constantly changes its prices so check back regularly to get the most up-to-date price.


The Ready Store does not state where it sources its food simply saying “they use the top growers and brands in the industry.” We give this package a nice, solid mid-range score for taste based on the wide variety of food and the Saratoga Farms brand.

Shelf Life

All of the foods in this package have been freeze dried or dehydrated, which gives them a 15-20 year shelf life. The Ready Store claims 25+ years of estimated shelf life, but that is a little generous for food in mylar pouches.

Prep Time

It only takes water (boiling water is best) and about 10 minutes to get this food ready to eat.


Like a lot of competitors, this package comes in stackable buckets. these rectangular buckets save over 20% in space versus the traditional round bucket. Also, aside from stacking vertically they nest up next to each other very closely, which allows for the most efficient use of any space.
