Check numbers on buckets for 1,2,4,5. 2 is the best, these numbers mean food grade and can be used for water, food storage. T
8. Heat Up Water – Get two black 5-gallon buckets, put one inside the other, fill 2/3 of it with water, put the lid on, and place it in direct sunlight. After an hour or two (depending on the temperature outside), you will have a bucket of nice, hot water. It might even be a little too hot, in which case you can add some cold water (this is why I don’t recommend filling it all the way).

DIY emergency (or camping) toilet. Toilet seat on cut-away milk crate, five gallon bucket, and old table legs (or scrap wood) held on with plastic zip ties. Can cover the waste with sawdust and dump when full. Article says compost should be hot temperatures for a year to be safe. Author was in CA.

Make your own glowing ice lanterns, but place an LED tea light candle in the middle for a safe and creative light source!
Oh, these are easy to make - made them for a Christmas party, one year... Freeze water in brown paper bags, take them out before the party, put a candle in each one, line the driveway : > Winter lights
Ice block lanterns in the snow. Love it! Great idea for outdoor lighting in the winter snow. -- this could be a cool theme for prom too!!! (aka, a winter wonderland dance or a walk through the snow, or something like that)
Winter lights. These look like ice luminarias. One Christmas, here in the North Country, it was so horribly cold for a solid week before my party. I made these by placing water in half gallon wax milk cartons. They were so beautiful along the walkway, and it was so cold that the heat from the candle didn't melt the ice or the candle. They lasted for another week!

Winter Wonderland: Make from milk cartons - cut off top, tape plastic cup suspended in the center, pour water into space around cup, and set outside in the cold to freeze. Slide ice block out of carton, remove cup, and place candle inside.
Beautiful for a winter wedding. Ice block lighting

How Much Food Fits in a 5 Gallon Bucket? Based on my(website) math, a typical 5 gallon bucket holds 0.71 cubic feet of anything you want. Filled with water, it will hold 42 pounds of the stuff, not counting the weight of the bucket (typically 2 pounds.) That means for any liquid or semi-liquid food such as wine, beer, peanut butter, honey or cooking oils, just remember 42. Once you start talking dry foods the weight really starts to vary.
