That's how I did it. I used a 5 frame box and put a frame of bees a frame of food 2 frames of foundation a queen and a division board feeder and they are doing very nice this winter. NWC's in one deep one medium.
The grocery stores here have 25 pound bags but cost per ounce (shown on the shelf) was actually higher than in 10 pound bags! I buy the 10's; easier to handle than a 25 anyway (I hate spilling sugar on the kitchen floor!). Might try Sam's Club also but they tend to have "name brands" instead of cheaper "store brands."
