I've used the valve bags mostly. At first, used mason jars, but saw the 
value of allowing the CO2 to escape, so have been using them ever since.
I think for small batches that get used up fast as both of yours seems 
to be, the difference isn't going to matter much one way or the other, 
as long as you allow the CO2 out within the first four hours of the 
roast (I believe that is the minimum as I recall from reading SM).
But I generally roast 2# a week, and store them in valve bags, and they 
stay good and fresh up on my cabinet shelf until I've used them up. 
Anything else would be too much work for my taste. :)
Oh, I'm also the only coffee drinker in my house, though occasionally my 
18 year-old-son will take a cup. I'm sure I get close to that healthful 
four cups a day average. :)
