    My last house was infested with weevils so when I moved in I ended up having to throw away all of my dry foods. After that I bought a 2nd large deep freezer just for my dry foods, sugar, flour, rice, noodles, anything that wasn’t in a can went into that freezer and it actually helps it from getting stale also! :) My next house I am installing a walk in freezer in the basement.
    Don’t forget you can freeze most dairy products they are just fine when you defrost them. :) I buy dips, sour cream and ricotta on sale in bulk and freeze it until it is needed.

      If you freeze flour for 24 hours then take it out and put it in the pantry it keeps weevils away. I don’t know why or how but I know it works! LOL
      I also keep my sugar(white,Brown and powdered) in the fridge. I have small containers for the sugar we use on the counter because we get ants in out pantry all the time.

    I’m never loading up my freezer again after Irene took our electricity out for half a week. I threw away so much food it was painful.

    Tofu, non-dairy milks/butter/cheese, grapes, and citrus (peeled and cut) all freeze well. Breads also freeze very well. I take them from freezer to fridge to defrost when we want to use them and keep them stored in the fridge. Most commercial breads have enough preservatives they don’t require this, but the breads not full of that stuff last longer in the fridge than on the counter.

    I can’t believe I didn’t put bread on the list. That’s in my freezer right now.

    Thanks for all the other great tips!

    So sorry you lost all that food Kirstin! I hope insurance covered it

      I cook and mash my potatoes before freezing and put them in an over safe pan (I used a round cake pan) that way I can pull it from the freezer and throw it right in the oven.
