    I was at my local grocer's today, picking up Thanksgiving and saw: FLOUR IN REAL FLOUR SACKS! Sweet florals just like the ones my mom bought in the fifties! About $3 more than the paper sacks. If I had a place to store 25 lbs, I might have bought a bag. Maybe after Christmas I'll indulge, just for the memory.

    If I see them I will get them. I have tins from popcorn gifts. They will work to hold dry goods.

    Thanks for the heads-up. The only big food store around here is GIANT.

    I think alot of people are stocking up because they keep telling us we are going to have a real shortage of food next year due to crop failings worldwide. Suddenly all of our stores are stocking 25-50# bags of flour, rice, beans, etc. I have not seen any in cotton bags yet.

    You could bake a bunch of Christmas cookies - or better yet, get a recipe for cookies or cake - put ingredients in a basket as a Christmas Present?

    Start making your own bread. It's easy and cost about .25 or less a loaf. There is a great no knead bread recipe from a bread chef called No Knead Bread (ha) Google it, it's some pretty darn good bread to be no work. I use my bread machine every day. I go through flour fast so I hope I see these sacks.

    I make my own bread and I have a 25 lb bag now but it's not the fabric one. I wish I knew...anyway, even if we stock up rice, beans, flour because of coming shortages....weebles will get in the stuff....it happen to my rice all the time. I think the egge come with the rice and just hatch later....
