A few weeks ago, I finally found a replacement container for the old, green, plastic flour bin.
This pretty laundry basket!
A wicker laundry basket, with a cotton liner inside is just the thing for storing 40-50 lbs. of bread flour.
Although *we* had some concerns about the flour escaping as dust through the liner, I can assure you with confidence that nothing so unsettling has occurred. The flour has behaved appropriately in its new home, making no attempts to escape, or powder itself in a fine ring around the bottom of the basket.
I am… quite content.
