Five Ways to Save Money on Dog Food
I love to feed The Ginger Sisters the best quality food I can afford and spoil them with yummy, healthy treats. I also love saving money when I can! The following are five ways I've found to keep the pet pantry stocked without breaking the bank:
Feed a Rotation Diet
This is my favorite, because not only do I believe it is the best way to feed my dogs, offering variety and not solely relying on one brand, but it allows me to introduce new, high-quality foods into their diet as well as stock up when things are on sale. Because they have always been fed this way, they have never had any problem adjusting. They always have The Honest Kitchen for breakfast, but I rotate recipes sometimes adding canned food for a special treat, and I feed a variety of kibble brands for dinner, rotating by the bag.
You would be surprised at the lower prices that some smaller, local businesses offer in addition to their own loyalty programs. My local Kriser's offers a Buy 10/Get 1 program for their dog food and also sends me monthly coupons!
Online Loyalty Programs
Many brands and online retailers offer loyalty programs in which you can earn points with every purchase or by sharing on social media. I have saved money on shipping and gotten discounted or free products this way from One Dog Organic Bakery, The Honest Kitchen and Sit Stay.
Enter Blog Giveaways
I have had the best luck entering giveaways hosted by my fellow bloggers and I love hosting them here at Rubicon Days. I just won an Only Natural Pet gift certificate from Keep the Tail Wagging and used it to stock up on some my favorite products! This is also a great way to try something new.
Utilize Social Media
By following brands you like on social media, you can stay up to date on any flash sales or special offers. Facebook groups are another way for people to share discounts and coupon codes - I belong to a wonderful one called Dog Food Nerds of Facebook.
