Don't even know how much flour I go through now. Usually buy a 10 pound bag, plus whole wheat, light and dark rye, cake flour, cocnut flour and all the nut flours.

Yeah that why I keep mine in the freezer. I have a cannister for the kitchen I have a bay leaf in it keeps bugs out though I do go through the flour so fast it really dosn't have time to get a bug in it. Then out in the garrage I have two freezer chests one for meat the other for veggies, that is where I keep the flour...plus I keep rye flour out there too, I make our girls doggie cookies too....
