I bought 10 of these containers to help reorganize my pantry and because two of them fit perfectly one behind the other on our shelves. As advertised, a 5lb bag of flour, sugar, corn meal, etc. fits perfectly in one container. I cut the labels off the bags and taped them to the containers. Air tight so hopefully we have eliminated the dreaded flour moth problem and we now have much more room on our shelves. Great for dry beans as well! I'm buying more.
