Pet Food Storage
I love my cats, but in my small apartment, a large bag of cat food is not only in the way, it is also an eyesore. There isn’t much storage space here, so I had no choice but to buy the bag and find a place to put it. One day while in the store, I was walking through the plastic container section when the answer to my pet food storage dilemma jumped out at me. I found a plastic container that would slide under my bed, and was the perfect size to hold a large bag of cat food. If you buy food in larger bags like I like to do, you save money on your pet food budget. The problem with larger bags is that the food tends to go stale if the bag is left open for too long.
If you think cats don’t know or care if their food is stale, you’ll have to come meet mine. They know. They won’t eat anything that has been sitting out for more than a few hours. So when I wanted to buy something for pet food storage, I had to find something that would not only slip into a small place, I had to find something that would keep the food fresh. There are many plastic units you can buy for pet food storage.
Because my cats’ dishes are in my bedroom, my best bet was to find something that fit under my bed. The pet food storage container I bought does just that, and it also has an airtight lid that helps keep the food fresh for a longer period of time. On top of that, it slides in and out from under my bed on wheels, so it doesn’t make a lot of noise on my hardwood floors. You can buy a plastic unit for your own pet food storage needs, and you don’t have to get one that goes under your bed. You can get long and tall units that will sit nicely in a kitchen cupboard or closet. The important things to look for when buying are size, shape, and if the lid is air tight. You can try freeze-dried foods that can be stored in your freezer, but that can take up a lot of freezer space. If you can’t find what you need in your local department store, you should go to a pet store and see what they have in regards to pet food storage. They may have already figured it out for you. .
