Repurposed Coffee Canister to Store Bulk Flour

I typically buy my flour in 25-lb bags.  I’ll store it in the freezer for at least 24-48 hours just to make sure I’m not bringing home pantry moths.  Yeah, you have those little beasts only once before you make sure you’ll never EVER have them again!

Then as long as I have room I’ll just store it in the freezer.  But I don’t want to drag out a 25-lb bag of flour each time I want to make RancherMan’s favorite Light, Fluffy Sandwich Bread.  So I keep a small supply of flour in my kitchen cabinets.

Another use for a repurposed coffee canister - to store bulk flour. A reusable chalkboard label makes it look nice in my kitchen! #TaylorMadeHomestead

Oh y’all know how I love these handy coffee canisters we always seem to have onhand.  I’ve written about all the different ways I’ve been able to Repurpose Those Canisters.  But here’s a very simple yet very useful way to repurpose them.  I use one to store my small measure of flour!

I wanted it to look a little more kitchen-canister-like so I Removed The Print and used one of my *Reusable Chalkboard Labels to make it into a bonafide flour canister.

It’s environmentally friendly because I’ve repurposed the used container to another life.  It’s cheap because I didn’t have to buy a flour canister.  Plus I think it looks great in my kitchen. Love it!

    I read your process about removing the labels. I’m pretty lazy, I just turn them backwards on the self. I don’t have that many so I just know what is in each one.

      OMGosh Margy you’re so clever! I need to consider doing that as well especially if it’s gonna be a shorter-term duration stint in the pantry. Thanks for sharing. ~TMH~

    If I click on the Amazon icon on your page do you get the credit? Which size of chalk labels did you buy? I love the labels. Jan

      Yes ma’am Jan – I receive a small commission for being the Amazon portal but the price you pay does not change. I love those labels too and I’ve linked in this post to the ones I bought. There are various other sizes as well so if you decide to buy one of the other sizes I still get credit provided you click & buy after entering Amazon through the portal I provided in this post. I use these labels for dehydrated goods stored in glass jars in my pantry too – love ’em! ~TMH~
