Pantry storage: flour, sugar, etc.

How do you store staple ingredients? Right now, I'm ant-proofing, but also thinking long term quality, too.
I've not liked canisters on the counter, but would consider if you can recommend some strong-lidded kind (rubber stoppers? Screw-tops?)
Have been keeping 5 lb. bags of sugar, flour, etc, in the original bag, then in a Ziplock, so the whole thing gets smaller as I use 'em up, which helps with space, but what works better for you? Is anything really ant-proof (just did a major purge 'cause of them)?
