My dog Buddie Love eats better than I do. I say this because he eats Merrick brand Turducken dog food, which is an organic, American-made dog food (I wish I ate all organic). It is quite pricey, but after the death of my first and super beloved Dalmatian, Freddie, I made the vow that I would feed my next dog the best food that I could.
We've had Buddie for almost 4 years and this was before all of those scary pet-food recall issues. When they went on, I did have peace of mind knowing that his food is from a reputable (and Christian, family-based) company. Oh and did I mention that the food is pricey? lol... That is one issue that gets me time and again when I pay just about $50 for a 30 lb. bag.
If you live in my general area & have a pet, you should check out Cutter's Mill. There are stores in Princeton & Cherry Hill, as well as Chalfont & Paoli, PA. It's a great place to find natural and organic pet products and here's my favorite part: they love to send out coupons. Sign up in the store or online and you'll get coupons both mailed and emailed to you, some for as much as 25-30% off one item.
They've been sending me coupons for a while now, but I don't always go to the store because the one near me is not exactly the most convenient location for us. But a couple days ago I went into the store with my mom and I asked the question I never asked before: "are the 'one item' coupons good on food?" The sales person told me that they are valid on any regular price item, and food is rarely on sale, so yes.
Epiphany! Armed with my 30% off coupon, Buddie's 30 lb. bag of Turducken was only $35. I just got another email from Cutter's Mill with a 25% off one item coupon, and I don't have to tell you that these are big savings!
If you also tend to spend a lot of money on your furry friends, I hope this tip helps you out!
