  • When it comes home, it goes in the freezer for 3 days, then it stays in the bag until it's opened. Flour goes in a giant canister after it's opened, the rest stay in their bags. The freezing ensures it will never go buggy.

  • I do the exact same as the previous poster. I use most of those things in bulk so I keep them frozen in batches. I don't use powdered sugar so I don't have a storage issue with that

  • I also freeze mine, but I put the sealed bag directly into sealed Tupperware until it's open, then pour it into the Tupperware. I prefer to keep it in the freezer if I have space.

  • Flour is in a glass container with a lid on it and sugar is in a plastice container with a lid on it.

  • Flour and Sugar are in canisters with silicone seals, and the extra (what doesn't fit in the canisters) are in the freezer. Brown sugar and powdered sugar I just keep in the bags in a cabinet with a twist-tie on them after opening; we've never had a problem with them.

  • flour & sugar are in silicone sealed containers (we've had meal moths but our flour was/stayed clean). brown sugar stays in the ziptop bag it comes in and powdered sugar (which only gets used in Dec) just goes in a gallon ziptop bag.
