There is a lot of good equipment you can buy to store your grain in on this post. My self I go to walmart to the bakery shop and just ask if they have any pastry buckets. They normally come in about a 4 gal. size with a lid and seal and will hold about 25 lbs of grain. Just wash them out and fill them up. They are food grade and stack and store very well and are air tight too. The best part is they are free. Why spend money on storage if you don't have to? Spend the money on a nice tap system or something lol.... ;D
People keep telling me it's not rocket science... I like rockets..

I use trash compactor bags. They're heavy and adjust to the volume. Just put the grain sack inside the trash compactor bag and seal both with twisty ties or what ever.  Smaller quantities can be stored in frosting buckets like mentioned earlier. Cheers!!!

If Homebrew & BBQ aren't the answer, then you're askin' the wrong questions... Cheers!!!
