Despite all the baking coupons out there, I still prefer to pick up my baking supplies at ALDI. They seem to be the cheapest, except during the prime baking times of Easter, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. And it might be cheaper per pound to get larger amounts of flour and sugar at a warehouse store like Sam's Club or Costco, but then storage becomes a problem here in hot, humid South Florida. Not that storage problems are insurmountable, but the chance of losing some of my food makes it worth it to spend a little more for smaller quantities, at least for me. Your mileage may vary.
One baking item I do buy in bulk is yeast, but even 2 1-lb packages are fairly small and easy to store in the freezer.
Do you buy baking supplies in bulk? How do you store them? How long do the larger packages last? Leave a comment below!
