Best place to buy flour in bulk at a low price?

Where do you buy large quantities of flour? I don't need enough to run a bakery or anything, just enough to feed a family of four. I bake a lot and we seem to go through tons.

We have a restaurant supply place called Cash and Carry, you can get flour, grains, beans in large amounts pretty cheap.

I get packages of 2 10# bags of organic flour at Costco for less than I pay for conventional at Kroger. They also have 50# bags but I don't want to deal w/ storing that much.

Costco has the best prices around here too. I can buy 10kg sacs of white or whole wheat for half the regular price of grocery stores.

I just picked up the 20 lb UltraGrain flour at Costco for $7.99. Love that stuff!

3rd costco. We are able to get 25lb organic flour at a pretty reaasonable rate here (like *8 more than convential flour) plus its a pretty stnadard size so I was able to find a restaurant grade storage container to hold it pretty easily at a supply store

Hmmm...we don't have a costco membership, we have BJ's. I wonder if any of my friends have costco. I haven't checked prices at BJ's in a while, maybe they are comparable.

If you are near Asheville there is a 'seconds' store for health food stuff. Worth looking for, imo.

I'm not, but DH is there frequently. Do you know the name of the store?

We have a local flour mill and pay $12 for a 10kg bag

I (and MJ) have the same problem, and would be willing to spilt.

Keep an eye out for grocery store sales, especially around the holidays. My store had a sale on Gold Medal flour for $1/5# bag. So I got 30 lbs of flour for $6 (15lbs unbleached white and 15 lbs whole wheat!)
