A great way to get the food ready for the week...

Post by Chermo »

Ok so I couldn't sleep last night so I got to thinking how can I make crab feeding easier each day so I know I don't give them the same stuff each day......

I got a great idea and I went out and bought it today.....

Those pill containers that people use to organize their pills for each week. I got a Sunday through Saturday one for .96 cents at Walmart in pink and it is awesome.

I put all the dried foods I wanted to feed them during the week in there and I will just have to add the fresh foods to the dish when I feed the crabbies at night.

Just thought I would share....

Due to family issues my crabs have been adopted out to wizkidsmom (Cheryl), I know she will care for them like I did. Thanks Cheryl

That is an awesome Idea! I'm going to order a bunch of hermit crab food form the hermit crab addiction this week to add with the fresh food I give (I like to have a choice of two food dishes) and having it all separated out by days would make it easier to give variety. :D

The pill dispensers are great and I have used them for a few years now especially when we go away. They come in VERY handy. And to help with fresh foods too, ice cube trays work to freeze hermie foods.

Aww Marie knew it and was keeping it secret! XD

The ice cube trays are awesome, I froze up some baby food (a little blob in each "cube") and then dumped it all into labeled freezer ziploc bags. It's great!
