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.July 11, 2013 at 7:51 am #21218 Report AbusetheBCnutMember
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.July 11, 2013 at 8:28 am #21222 Report Abuse
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.July 11, 2013 at 8:30 am #21223 Report AbusepugmomsandyParticipant
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!July 11, 2013 at 1:52 pm #21236 Report AbuseHound Dog MomParticipant
When I fed dry I didn’t keep anything longer than 4 weeks.July 11, 2013 at 5:40 pm #21253 Report AbuseRonaldParticipant
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..July 11, 2013 at 6:03 pm #21258 Report Abuse
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.
