I'm trying to plan my menu for August but I need to know, if I buy 5 lb of flour, how many cups of flour is that? (So I don't run out , because I'm making a lot of homemade breads this time.) Let's assume that it's spooned into the measuring cup and not just packed in there as tight as can be. I know it's probably on the label but I don't have a bag of flour in the house.

All purpose flour has a density of about 4.5 cups per pound... so 22.5 cups.

Edited to add:
Just checked the King Arthur site. They say 19 to 20 cups.
