I have a set of harvest gold Tupperware 3 canister set.  I store flour, sugar and coffee in them.

I still use a trio of stacking Tupperware containers.

One for flour, one for sugar, and the third for Bisquick.

 

They must be from '65-'75, because they're the bright orange from that era. The lids are still flexible and the "one finger" Seal & Burp still works like new.

I use plastic containers that have locking air tight lids for flour, sugar, brown sugar, powdered sugar, etc.  I get the at Dollar General or Walmart.

I still have good old fashioned canisters on my counter. 

 

Mine are huge (the flour one will hold like 7 lbs.) and are from Rowe Pottery works. I don't have any problems with things going stale or sugar getting hard. No problems with bugs either. 

 

Longer term storage is in Lock and Lock or glass jars and vacuum sealed.

I keep mine in the bags they come in then put that bag in a ziplock type plastic bag.

Gotta love that old Tupperware...I still use that green colander I bought in 1974!

My flour is stored in a Lock and Lock bin with an opening that lets you scoop from the side near the top.
