What’s Your Style?
Is it time to find a new storage solution for doggie’s food? If you haven’t checked lately, you might be surprised to find that there are numerous options to meet your needs and complement your personal style — from the trendy Harry Barker designs pictured above to the DIY projects discussed below.
Those of us who buy dog food in large bags know all too well that storage can be a real problem. Usually propped up near the back door, the bags are unsightly, spill easily and we’ve all experienced the frustration of having to reach into a half-filled bag and being up to our elbows in messy crumbs.
A quick Google search for “dog food storage” shows several examples that hold large quantities and feature air tight seals for food freshness, locking handles to avoid messy spills and wheels that make moving a breeze. From plastic three-piece models that offer lids in more than a dozen colors to a sleek stainless design, the range of products provides numerous options.
If you have space under a counter, these slide out bins that are intended to be used as a recycling center make for a very convenient doggie buffet. Available at most stores that sell kitchen organizers, these come with everything you need and are fairly easy to install.
Canned food? Opt for a handy dispenser that will keep cans neat and easily accessed. There’s a wide variety of shapes and sizes so make sure you measure your shelf before ordering.
On top of a counter or tucked away in a corner, there are also a number of containers that make for great storage of both dry food and doggie treats. Trash cans, popcorn tins, and coffee cans are readily available and can easily be transformed into a one-of-a-kind storage solution with a can of spray paint. Vinyl letters found at craft stores make decorating and personalizing a snap.
New products are being designed and introduced into the market every day and with a little research, you can find exactly what you need to make your life easier and keep your home organized. …just a thought.
