Good work!

I visited the nearby restaurant supply place and finally picked up a small industrial plastic trash can with a tight-fitting lid to empty Zeke's 35 pound bag of dogfood into. I had one half this size and half of the bag sat around until the bin was empty. One time I put the bag up on top of the freezer to keep Zeke out of it and the heat from the compressor warmed it enough that when it was dumped into the bin it had the beginnings of a weevil population. We used it before they became a problem, but now all food will go in at once (I have a similar sized one for the girls' food). The small bin (that was originally my turkey brining bin) is now for bird seed and is next to the side door near the feeders. I know where to get a new bin the next time I want to brine turkey.

Other things have been accomplished, dusting, cleaning, folding, hanging up, but the dog and bird food seemed most pressing.
