#10 cans vs. Mylar pouches

One disadvantage of Mylar pouches is what to do with the product after you’ve opened the pouch.  I’ve found it difficult to store an open Mylar bag of dry milk in my cupboard without dry milk ending up everywhere.  I’m currently rotating out some dry milk I canned a couple years ago and my solution has been to pour the dry milk into a large plastic bin with a lid. However it seems the quantity of milk in the pouch is always a little more than the size of the bin and pouring the milk into the bin often results in a light dusting of sticky dry milk on the counter.

My new solution is to can all of my products in #10 cans.  The product doesn’t need to be transferred to a new container and when your done you might even be able to repurpose the can. 

Now what to do with all my pouches of dry milk.
