How I Saved 60% on Pet Travel Goods at Tuesday Morning

tuesday-morning-title

We love to travel with Irie and Tiki whenever possible. From day trips to overnight getaways, we try to include our dogs in our travel plans every chance we get.

Being self-employed, though, we know the value of saving money on our pet travel! In every aspect of our lives, we look for products that combine our demand for safety with our necessity for savings, and that includes our pet needs as well.

This week John and I checked out the pet travel products at our local Tuesday Morning store. We have an overnight trip with the dogs coming up later this month and generally we take the dogs on a day trip once per week. After two decades as travel writers, we’re so happy to now be sharing our travels with our dogs. They add so much to our travel, even the simplest trip to a park that we’ve visited many times in the past. Through their eyes, we’re able to see and experience destinations in a whole new way.

Our cats are homebodies, however. Nonetheless, we know that we also need travel items for them. We are assembling evacuation kits for each of our pets. Even if you don’t travel with your pets (and, don’t forget, travel also includes moving as well as trips to the vet or doggy day care), it’s important for everyone to have an evacuation kit for each pet. This grab-and-go bag contains a copy of your pet’s vital records, medications, food, leash or carrier, collar, ID, stress-reducing chews and treats, and boredom-busting interactive toys.

So we put together our list and headed to the Tuesday Morning store in Austin, Texas!

    Great article! We are just starting to gear up for travel with out cats. We got a pop-up tent for them to hang out in at Tuesday Morning. I was only $19.95. There are sturdier and more expensive versions, but this is just for fun.

      What a great idea!! I’m so very impressed that you’re traveling with your cats!! Ours are homebodies although I think our new kitten Lucky *might* like to travel some day. He absolutely loves our dogs and I know he misses them when we take the dogs!
