Wanting to stock up on a dog food sale and just started wondering if I should buy a smaller bag(13 lb). It will probably take us about a month to use up a 25 lb bag…actually I think it will take almost 6 weeks…is that too long to have a bag opened? I’ve been buying a 4.4 lb bag and it takes right at a week to use up.
It’s about 50 cents cheaper to buy the bigger bag per lb.
As long as you are rolling the top down tight after you get food out that should be fine. I get a weeks worth of food out into a different container, so I don’t have to open the big bag as often. And I weight down or clip the top of the big bag to minimize air exchange in there.
Thanks Patty! 🙂 Sure will help save some MONEY! It’s about $15 cheaper than I can get it at the local store even with coupons.
My large bags usually take around 2 months to use up. When I didn’t have so many dogs or when I use to have 2 or 3 bags open at once, even longer than that!

When I fed dry I didn’t keep anything longer than 4 weeks.
Mine last about a month or maybe 5 weeks..
Pedigree has a locking top, a slider goes across the top to seal it back up..
You know Ronald, as much as Nature’s Variety costs…it sure would be nice if they had a zip loc closure! I always fold it all up tight and use a big chip clip.
