I always have but wonder if it would stay fresher in a container.

I've always just left it in the box.

Ours doesn't sit around long enough to go stale, so yes.

We don't keep cereal around long enough for it to get stale.

|Posted: 10/11/2013 4:24:39 PM|I have 4 of the Rubbermaid containers made to keep cereal. It stays fresh for weeks and the kids can rotate which cereal they eat. I don't get up at 5 am to make them a hit breakfast before school, so I feel better giving them crunchy cereal.
|Posted: 10/11/2013 4:43:56 PM|I recently picked up the snap tight cereal containers when target had them on sale. I bought some cereal at Costco so it was taking the kids a while to get thru it all. Hubby only eats PB Captain Crunch and he travels a lot for work. He was complaining about it getting stale before he could finish a box. Everyone seems a happier with their cereal these days.
I don't eat cereal so I had never prioritized its freshness. Now I know better

Yes, it stays in the box until eaten.

In the box.. I used to do containers but found the cereal went stale faster, if that was even possible in our house.

|Posted: 10/11/2013 5:23:03 PM|No, my cereal goes into my Tupperware cereal containers. Otherwise the kids leave the boxes open, even if it's just a tiny bit, and it goes stale.
Plus I love my Tupperware!

I use the containers for cereal I buy at Costco. It keeps cereal fresh longer. If it's just a regular grocery store box it doesn't last long enough to go stale.

No, we put them in plastic cereal containers. We didn't do it because it got stale, but because we got sugar ants. Just about all of our starchy dry foods and candy of any kind is in a plastic container for that reason.

I do, but only because I don't have the plastic Rubbermaid cereal holders. If I had those, I'd use them.

I have the snapware containers I use because we buy cereal at Costco. I don't want to store the huge boxes and the bags are difficult for my kids to pour from. The containers solve both issues and keep the cereal fresh- though we still go through a lot of cereal. My kids eat it for snack after school.

|Posted: 10/11/2013 6:23:14 PM|I use containers. I, too, buy cereal at costco and the boxes take up too much space. I am not sure if it stays any fresher, my son eats like 3-4 bowls a day. It doesn't last long enough
|Posted: 10/11/2013 6:34:26 PM|
Dd always left just a tiny bit in the box (not enough for a bowl) so I got the clear plastic containers to keep track of when I needed to buy more. I got them at Ross for cheap.

We have a small motel and provide a free breakfast with the room rate, so the cereal for the coffee shop is kept in plastic containers with labels on them, so the customers can choose what they want. We have five different kinds in the coffee shop, plus packets of instant oatmeal, if they want hot instead of cold cereal.
But in the house, for both my DH and me, plus any grandkids that are here, I just keep it in the box. After it's been opened, I fold down the waxed paper liner and clip it with a clothespin. Stays pretty fresh as long as I keep it sealed like that.

The kids eat it too fast to even bother with switching containers.
