We store the grains/beans that we eat (black & pinto beans, lentils, wheat, rice, popcorn), along with salt & sugar in big 4 gallon glass jars (which conveniently hold 25# of grains/beans PERFECTLY!!). I'm not entirely sure how long of a 'supply' we have exactly, but enough for a good long while (combined around 150# of legumes and 100# of grains, 50# salt, 50# of sugars). .
So would I. If I was storing in plastic! But, I'm not worried about storing in glass - the jars are all glass with glass lids and rubber gasket seals (like the old-style canning jars). I love them - I can see whats inside, they're water tight, bugs can't get in'm... its just perfect!! Ball Ideal jars.
