Right now all kibble is kept in the bag, inside a large plastic bin with a lid. In the past I've transferred from that to a small rubbermaid bin for 2 week or so portions.

Cynder's food is just kept in the bag under the kitchen sink. I'd like to get a container for it, though, because keeping it in the bag bugs me as it can't close.

Chloe and Rose's food are in what I'll call trash cans, I suppose. They have a flip lid that latches on the top. You hit the button on the lid and it pops open.

I keep the ferret food in an old dog bone container. It's plastic and has a tight fitting lid, so it works really well. It also has a handle, which is nice. It can hold around 20 pounds of food, I think.

The rescue used those -- one for food and one for litter. They were fabulous when you had to clean out and refill 20 litter boxes LOL

I prefer using the bag.

I just buy small 5lb bags though.

This. I'm not sure of the brand of the bin - it's whatever one we sell at work lol.

I dump the bags into Rubbermaid storage tubs that are up on a desk where no one can get into them!

I really love using a food container vs the bag now! But we had to get them because we get ants on and off and had to get something the ants can't get into!
