yesterday's purch + monthly analysis

Postby HappyPuppy » October 7th, 2011, 12:19 pm

I just about over did my capability and patience yesterday with the meat shopping I did. Ugh – packaged up everything ‘cept the 2 chix and 2 turkey breasts and the tilapia last nite – will finish tonight. Even had to overflow into the human freezer LOL. I don’t usually buy this much at once but 4 stores had sales that I wanted to take advantage of!

I finally got over paying $1.79 for some things and stocked up….(FOR MY ONE DOG). Here was my score yesterday – 4 stores and $75.75 and 56 lbs of meat later….. I finally did some math – tho this does not include what was already in my freezer…. Keep in mind, I currently feed ½ kibble AM and ½ raw PM.

This does not include the random eggs, canned tripe or canned sardines, etc. – I also get whole mackerel for $2.00/lb that is not included here, which is fed once a week. I also feed chicken for 2 days or so and then alternate with a different meat.

(sorry - my nice spaces btwn columns didn't come out when I pasted...)

Nice bunch of meats! Some good stuff there...

I also feed half raw and half kibble although I think in actuality I am feeding more like 60 to 70% raw meat and bones. I've fed this way for about 7 or 8 years and she does very well with that diet. It's a good way to feed. And as your figures show, it does not cost all that much!

Nice haul! That's the same amount it costs me to feed a 13lb dog every month.
