I buy my coconut in bulk from my co-op. It’s so much more cost effective than the smaller packages, especially since I use so much of it. There’s also less waste in plastic bags going to the landfill. I store it in 5 gallon buckets that I get for free from the bakery section of my grocery store. Just ask, most stores will gladly give them to you. A 25 pound bag will fill two 5 gallon buckets.
