Thoughts on flour/ sugar storage?

Katie Nell | | Oct 13, 2006 04:30 PM

I'm probably over analyzing this, as usual, but I've been thinking a lot lately about how I can make my flour and granulated sugar more accessible. My mom has always had her brown sugar in a Tupperware container that is more shallow than tall... it's probably 9"x9"x3"H, and I've always liked this storage because it's much easier to scoop out of than a tall container, especially as I'm short and countertops are not! This is obviously not the traditional storage for granulated sugar and flour, but I'm wondering why something like this wouldn't work? Is there some reason flour/ granulated sugar storage is always tall? If I did decide to go this route, does the container need to be made out of something inparticular? Like, does flour or sugar not do well in plastic/ tupperware... too much moisture? What do you put yours in at the moment? I do really like my containers aesthetically... they're antique metal containers with silver on the bottom part and copper on the top, but I usually leave the flour and sugar in the sacks for fear of rust. Any thoughts?
