Default What do you keep your kibble in?

I currently have a food bin that I got at Target a couple years back. It has an airtight/bug proof seal, but is pretty cumbersome and takes up a lot of space. When I get a second dog, they may or may not be on the same kibble and I will need to get another kibble container to store their food in.
This is what I currently have:


So...what do you use?

Its hard to explain, but its a giant barrel thing that has an o ring for the lid and it has teeth that lock the lid on, then a band that goes around the teeth of both the barrel and lid and it snaps down. I think its for horses? Maybe? I think it came from the feed store.

For Rosey's food, I use the bag It's resealable and just convenient to plop the bag beside her bowl and refill when needed.

The ferrets I have a large milkbone bin I keep enough food for about 3 months in, it's kept on the landing halfway upstairs. Then there is a smaller container (I think it's meant to keep pasta in) I transfer food in from the milkbone container, it holds about a week of food, and it's kept beside the ferret cage. Then I have baggies in the freezer in roughly week portions to use once the milkbone container is out

I find keeping the kibble in the bag works just fine. In the garage I keep the bags on a pallet. The raw/wet stuff I keep in the fridge/freezer.

I use a green flip top container intended for an organics program...

It works great! I always dump it totally before adding the new bag so the kibble stays fresh, Nuts and Minnie always used to claw the bags, I swear you'd think I starve those cats sometimes!!

A plastic bin similar to Hillside's. But I just kinda cut the top off my bag and stick the whole bag down inside the bin lol.

We have this on the wall in the utility closet:



I LOVE IT! It holds an entire 40lb bag of kibble. First in, first out. No rotation issues.

I have to admit I've given thought to these.
