    So, I just use one of those metal sugar cannisters. However, opened it yesterday and the sugar went everywhere...

    So, my question is, how do I store it (and I'm curious how do you store yours) in such a way that this doesn't happen? Or is it just a case of put the open packet in the cannister? Which might have been slightly easier...

    I keep mine in a bell-shaped metal sugar pot with a hinged lid. It has a little space under the lid where you can rest a spoon so you can get the sugar out easily (the sugar only goes everywhere if my hand makes an involuntary movement while carrying the spoon)

    Bags go in a tupperware cereal dispenser like http://www.plasticboxshop.co.uk/home...container-p225 (mine holds 2 bags of sugar).

    Day to day sugar lives in a sugarbowl (and topped up from the cereal dispenser)

    Various types (granulated, caster, icing, etc) live in their bags.

    Bought cheap in La Belle France when we ran out of sugar on a holiday and couldn't face buying a 1 Kg bag instead.

    What's a cannister? I'm pretty sure I'm thinking of a different cannister to you.
    Anyway, I just have a bag of sugar in my cupboard that everyone uses because nobody can be bothered to buy their own. #studentlife

    I use a plastic storage container with a rubber seal around the lid - the seal stops it going clumpy.
