    Default How do you store your cereal?

    Ours is always going stale.
    I usually roll down the top and secure with a peg.
    I've also tried those sistema cereal containers but it usually doesn't hold a whole box and it still goes stale.

    We throw out large volumes of cereal, but it's only the big boxes ever on special so not economical to buy smaller.

    Any tips or tricks?

    I've always stored ours in the fridge - probably because I lived in the far north for so many years. I still do it here in Canberra.

    The biggest issue is to get as much air out of what every storage you use.

    I hate it when I have to throw food out for any reason.

    We use the cereal containers. I also tend to buy more weetbix as it seems to last better than anything else.

    If you're throwing out a lot....it's not exactly more economical to buy in bulk, is it? You may as well pay more for a smaller quantity that you can actually get through in a reasonable time. Throwing away stale cereal is an indicator that you're buying too much.

    We store ours in Sistema containers and rarely throw out any (pretty much never), but then we're a Brady bunch with 5 kids (4 boys & 1 girl), so they are a hungry bunch. Mice are a fact of life here on the farm so we have to put most things in containers.

    Off topic but ours never stays long enough in the house to go stale!! My hubby has two big bowls of nutri grain for breakfast or at a minimum 6 weetbix! I'm forever buying it cause we have run out

    Most of the time I just peg the bag closed and keep it in it's box.

    I mostly buy muesli though, which goes into a cereal Tupperware container.

    Generally I'm the only one in the house who eats cereal, so it's rare that I would buy a huge box.

    Subbing. I dont eat cereal often so it's always going stale. I bought cereal pourer storage boxes thinking it would help but nope. Maybe I'll buy some of those clips, @teenie, where'd you get them?
