Pretty Pet Food Holder

I hate buying cat food...not just because its another expense like toothpaste, but because we have to keep buying the small bags that cost twice as much as if you buy a BIG bag. I'm all about getting the cheapest deal possible. We buy the small bags because we live in a small apartment and there isn't any room to put the BIG bag.

So, you can imagine my excitement when I found a cute way to store a bigger bag of cat food:
*Hint: look at the very bottom of the picture

I didn't want to buy a bucket...ok I can't afford to spend $15 on one of those metal ones...so I used one of these:
I painted it with the interior premium paint sample that Glidden sent me for free a month or so ago...printed out "Kitty Food" in some cute font, mod podged it on there and voila:

An instant money and space saver. Makes me so happy.

Ooh I love your idea! I'd love to try that with our dog food, although we'd need 3 or 4 tins ;) Your blog is so cute!

That turned out so great! I have my dog food in an ugly container. I'm going to go on a hunt for one of those tins.

Love this project!
