What size jar for a 5 lb bag of flour?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I have pantry moths. I posted about it over here in another forum section.

I really need to start storing my flour and sugar in containers. Problem is, the containers say 1/2 quart, 1 quart, 2 quarts, 1 gallon, while my baking supplies are by weight. Can someone chime in for me and tell me what size I need for a 5 lb bag of flour please?

I keep flour and sugar in these jars, which are a gallon. There is some room left over when I put in a new 5 lb bag.

Yep, I love them. I thrifted a couple and they worked so well that I ended up buying a couple more new.

I use an old tupperware set like this one:

the large one holds a 5lb bag of flour and the one next to it holds a 5 lb bag of sugar (sugar is a little tighter of a fit... but I use so much flour I always leave a 1 cup measuring cup in it)
I got rid of the 2 smallest ones a long time ago because I never used them. But they've been great for the last 13 years.

I have Rubbermaid plastic canisters. I can fit a 5 lb bag of flour into the 21-cup size with room left over.
