    I use something like this and just put the bag inside. Don't remember it costing this much though.

    I have an Iris container and a Bergan container. I can fit a 30# bag on the Iris and a 40# bag in the new Bergan.
    I put the bag inside the container.

    Large rubbermaid used to store gift wrapping (my wife found it). Has a locking lid and fits under the shelf in the laundry room. Works great.

    Dog food bags are designed to keep the food fresh for months until the bag is opened. If you roll the bag tightly after it is openned it is still the best storage for your dog's food. If you need protection from rodents or want to add another layer of air-tight protection put the bag in the bucket, garbage can, or other container.

    An added advantage of keeping the food in its original bag is that if there is ever a dog food recall you will have the production code and expiration date on the bag so you can tell if you have food that is affected by the recall.

    Whatever container you use it's a good idea to snip off the production code from the bag and tack it up on the wall.
