I stopped using my canisters for storing sugar and flour a while back. It just wasn’t practical for me with as much baking as I do. I was constantly having to refill them, so finally, I just gave up on them and got the sugar and flour, when I needed them, straight from the bags, which I stored in my pantry.
During a visit from a dear friend, she wondered aloud why I continued to buy the 5 pound bags instead of the more economical 25 pound bags. I didn’t really have a good reason except that I hadn’t thought it through and didn’t know where to keep that much flour and sugar.
That was then! This is now….
I keep two of these in my pantry. One is marked “flour” and one is marked “sugar”.
Then, with my mixing bowls, I keep two of these…
One for flour and one for sugar. I refill these out of the big tubs and refill the big tubs when they are low. This “works for me!” Check out more great tips at Rocks in my Dryer.
