With 'Weet-Bix' I think they are better stored in a plastic container.Only because there is not a whole lot to seal-up the top, once opened.

Other cereal...I use a rubber band around the top, and that stops all air getting in for the most.Easy as :)
Yes, jonaj, rubber bands are indispensable; whatever did we do without them?
I haven't bought a Sanitarium product since 1980. Hubby only eats 'Vita-Brits'. He eats a whole concoction of various cereals etc etc etc, on top of them, which I make up for him, mixing them all together, then store in huge Tupperware round containers.

I have a large jar that I use to store cereal.

Sometimes I leave cereal in the box and other times I transfer it to another container. If the original box is difficult to keep closed I transfer the cereal. When I know it will be some time before all the cereal is consumed I will put it in a plastic container.
My 'Rice Bubbles' stay in their packet, top rolled over a few times, & peg(s) attached. Then store in original cardboard box. Keeps for ages that way.

'Uncle Toby's Oats' are stored in large, round Tupperware container. Keeps out the moths!

These are THE only cereals I eat. The former occasionally, with milk & a banana, & the latter, daily, in Winter, with brown sugar & fresh cream atop!

I leave all cereals in the box - just make sure I fold the plastic over.

In plastic containers.
1st of all, I have to take the Weet-Bix packet out of it’s box, turn it on it’s side, holding onto the cereal with 1 hand, & pulling out a side layer with the other hand! I then put it back into the box as in the size above) & put the box into a Wheet-Bix Tin, which is slightly narrower than the cardboard box!I then put the top layer of Weet-Bix in a small plastic container.
I hope that makes some sense to someone!
Original box
I like my cereals stored in either plastic or glass containers. I also store flour and other cooking essentials in plastic or glass containers.
I store most food in the pantry in Tupperware, and some in glass.

However, if the pack is unopened, I would leave it generally in the pack till I open it.

I have learnt living anywhere warm you make sure your food is put into airtight containers to keep it fresh and keep the bugs out.

I put my cereal in a plastic container....and not just ANY plastic container - a Tupperware container no less!
the boxes do not close after opening so it is wiser to transfer the contends to a plastic container,

I buy rolled oats and muesli from the bulk dispenser at the whole food shop, and store them in large spring clip glass canisters.

I store my Wheat-Bix in a black & orange coloured Wheat-Bix tin. My husband just has his Cornflakes, in the bag, which (was) inside the Cornflake box, with a rubber band around it.
