Storage tubs for large bags of dry pet food?

Can anyone suggest the best place to buy these?

Have lots of cats (4 own plus fostered rescues) so buy dry food in 10 kilo bags as the price per kilo can be half that of smaller bags.

However, it can still take weeks if not months to get through the food, so don't want it to go stale. Not all the bags have sealy tops and if I leave the bags out (I have space under the kitchen island where they live) some cats take it upon themselves to chew through the bag to get to the food.

I'm thinking of a tall plastic tub with a clip top so it's airtight. Have access to most normal shops like supermarkets, Wilkos, Home Bargains, B&M etc so can anyone suggest the best place to look to get something like this at a good price?

I got a huge container with a clip top lid and a scoop from Pets at Home, I think it was Addis brand or something equally reputable.
I'm not sure how tight the seal is, but it holds our 15kg bags of kibble and our turn around is quite quick so I haven't noticed it getting stale or anything.

Wilkos sell plastic kitchen refuse bins with an airtight seal clip top. They will hold a 17kg bag of dog food, so will be big enough for your needs. Cost £7.

We have one the same as this, but black.
Holds 12kg of dog food.

You can get loads of tubs for dog/cat food I put mine up high for cats as they’d shred through them too!! My mum has a eukanuba tub with a lid she got from pets at home years ago it’s not huge.
For my dog we turned the top over a few times and used those huge pegs to secure it and was in a cupboard as the cats went at that too!!
Do you have a lot of cat’s? We are just about to add to our cat family with kittens which we will keep.
