I am in the process of cleaning out our pantry, which is quite disorganized and home to some frighteningly old food packages. Once I have sorted through what we have, I am planning to buy some fresh staples, and some better storage containers, so that we will keep better track of what we have and waste less.
First of all, what stores in Newton/Waltham/Watertown area have the best prices on flour, sugar, and the like? Is there anywhere besides Whole Foods with bulk bins for things like rice, dry beans, oats, etc?
Second, where should I look for good quality storage canisters at a good price? I'm not looking for anything fancy, just good quality and durability.
