I keep a little stash of suet cakes in my outside fridge when they go on sale. I'm not sure if the birds really need them or not, but they like them and it's fun to watch them play with them!

I'd bought mine in the spring/summer, and for keeping them long term they got hot and melty and icky. I have a second fridge in the garage that comes in handy for things like that
