My Teddy does not have a big appetite. When we buy him his pet food, it seems to last forever! He is so small that the bags of dry dog food we buy him often go stale before he finishes half the bag. That’s why I finally decided Teddy needed his very own dry food pet storage container. But when I tried shopping for a dry food pet storage container, I had such a hard time. All the dry food storage containers available in most of the stores were over $20 – that’s more than Teddy’s food – and weren’t even that cute. That’s when I decided to make this adorable DIY dry food pet storage container for Teddy’s dry dog food.
This container cost me less than $4 to make and it’s a great way to upcycle an old metal coffee can that most people have laying around their homes. It’s so stinking adorable that you’ll no longer feel the need to hide those bags of dry dog food under the counter.
Make this DIY Dry Food Pet Storage Container
When I say this DIY Dry Food Pet Storage Container is really simple to make, I mean it. This container is so easy, that the hardest thing about making it, will be painting it.
I bought all of my supplies at my local Dollar General for less than $4, so while I was there, I decided to buy Teddy some new dry pet food to put in my finished container. Normally, I just pick up a bag of Kibbles ‘N Bits® Small Breed Dry Dog Food, but while I was in the pet food aisle, I noticed Kibbles ‘N Bits® had a new flavor of pet food, Kibbles ‘N Bits® Bacon and Steak Flavor Dry Dog Food, so I decided to buy it too.
Kibbles ‘N Bits® Bacon and Steak Flavor Dry Dog Food has signature bits made with real meat and Dog-approved flavors of bacon and steak in every bite. Plus it’s a 100% complete and balanced for adult dogs. My Teddy is usually picky about trying new pet foods, but he loves this new Kibbles ‘N Bits® Bacon and Steak Flavor Dry Dog food and eats it up as soon as I give it to him. I’m actually a little unsure if he needs a pet food storage container for this dry dog food, it may be gone sooner than I think.
With Dollar General’s already low prices, I was surprised to find out Dollar General had a digital coupon to save $1.00 off any one Kibbles ‘n Bits® Dry Dog Food, 3lb bag or larger(valid 3/3/19 – 4/30/19). This coupon makes it even more affordable for your frugal budget to feed your pet food they will love.
