Riley’s New Iris Airtight Food Container

I ordered Riley a new food container from Amazon the other day because I’m going to start buying her 30 lb bags of food instead of the 15 lb I have been buying.  It’s just more cost effective to buy the bigger bags.  The pet store is doing a program where you buy 12 bags and get one free.  I decided I would start buying the big bags a few months ago but I already had 10 bags of 15 lb food out of the 12 I needed to get my 13th bag free.  Confusing?  🙂

Anyway, so I went to Care-A-Lot (my go-to local pet store that I LOVE) today and picked up the last two bags of 15 lb food I needed to get that 13th bag free.  (The bags all had to be the same size, so they all had to be 15 lb bags).  I learned that they’re ending their buy 12 get one free program…boo…but they’ll still honor the card I have that has my 12 bags on it, so that’s good.

Anywho, enough confusion!  Onto the pictures!

The new container is on the left, the old one on the right.  The old one held about 20 lbs of food.  The new one says it holds 37+ lbs, which I believe because I have about 36 lbs in there right now and there’s still room at the top of the container for a few more pounds.

Riley’s food.  Bags #11 and 12.

The specs.

Of course, I had to paint her name on the top.  We wouldn’t want anyone to get her and Chloe’s food confused…even though Chloe’s food is in a different type of container and is kept in a different room…but still.
