I use the bag as it is easier to drag out than a bin. I can't stand in the closet and dole out food for 8 dogs, I set the bowls on the counter and fill with a scoop.

These do work well though for one or two dogs. Stackable.

You can get air tight lids from that company (Gamma) I believe that go on 5 gallon buckets.

We can't really leave the bag out as someone - if not the dogs, then the cats, and if not the cats, then the mice - would get into it, nor do I want a gigantic container in my living space. So we keep the bag inside a metal garbage can in the basement, and keep a smaller regular food storage container in the cupboard that holds several days' worth.

We have a vittles vault. It works great. It even fits into a kitchen cabinet so it's out of sight
A dog is a miracle with paws.

Is use a bin similar to the one in the first post from petsmart. It's perfect for Chloe.

I'm definitely thinking about switching over to Vittle Vaults, I think they would make the most sense and take up the least amount of space.

When the boys where on kibble, we used something similar but slightly taller and narrower on wheels. I think we got it at walmart.

I use a plastic bin I got from Target. It doubles as Zander's food stand, so it all works out. All I have to do is lift the lid, scoop the food, place bowl back on top. Eventually I'll decorate it with markers and such, but for the moment it's plain. I think it holds right at 30-40lbs of kibble, so it's perfect for one dog. And if we happen to get a second dog, I'll get a second container, and that all works out as well...especially if they need a different food. Fool proof for DH.
