Store it in ziplock bags and freeze it. I do it all the time. When your flour container is empty, just take out a ziplock, sit it out so that it gets to room temperature and then it's ready to use.
Right now I have about 20 pounds in my deep freezer.

The rise in bread prices has floored us recently. The cheapest we can
find is $2 a loaf, and that's for the highly-proccessed, white stuff
that I can't stand to put in my body. I know many swear by the bread
outlet stores but our local store is filled with overly stale bread
that falls apart the moment you try to do anything with it.
So, being home all day, I decided to start baking our own bread. I'd
rather invest the time in making bread where I know what all of the
ingredients are. After much experimentation, I found a bread recipe
that we like and is easy to make.
I want to buy flour in bulk from Costco (20 lb bags) to cut down on
costs. The question is, how can I store it so bugs can't get into it
but not be intrusive? I don't have a lot of storage or closets in my
house to hide a container and with 2 inqusitive kids, I have to keep it
