Just the bag.
I had a so-called air-tight bin I got at Target that the cats and the dogs worked on so much they broke the lid off. Now I just keep it in the bags and put the bags in a cupboard.

Half in the bag, half in a rubbermaid type bin thing that fits in the cupboard.

Eventually we'll get a better system.

Finn has a 30-lb capacity airtight bin, forget the brand but it looks similar to Hilly's. June has the same brand bin but different style and for 15lb.

The ferrets have a Vittles Vault that has room enough for a 3 month supply of food. I want to switch Finn and June to one too so I save some space!

An old plastic bin with some stick tack shoved in the two holes so ants can't get in. Works.

I just have a big storage bin with a lid that snaps on. and slid it under the stairs. So a beagel cant break in, or a cat for that matter a collie wouldnt even try too lol. It holds about 20lbs of food. so I pour half a bag. use it all then refill. I used to just reclose the bag. But with a food hound and a cat hound. its not possible as both will open the bag and eat. I have caught the cat inside of it before eating. She is worse then the beagle for trying to steal food lol

I am very fortunate to have gotten it at no charge about 10 years ago. My husband's company purchased a few of these for dispensing manufacturing parts and it didn't work out as planned, their solution was to throw them out! So my husband and another guy each brought one home.........they use theirs for garage floor kitty litter! LOL

I had one of those for years. They're great if you're emptying the bag into the container. It became a PITA, tho, when I decided to start keeping Caleb's food in the bag.

I keep the bag in it to make it easier to clean out--works fine. And it is out where both hounds COULD get to it--but they don't because the lid is air tight and locks well. I like that is is on wheels and I can just pull it out, and slide it back easily.
