As you know, DogTipper is in the Rachael Ray Nutrish Advocacy group, working to help share the word about this pet food whose proceeds are donated to help homeless pets. And, as you know, we are always looking for ways to help readers save money while, at the same time, living a healthy lifestyle with their pets. As we write about in our Barkonomics: Tips for Frugal Fidos book, we believe that there are many ways to trim costs, live within your budget, and pamper your pets at the same time.
But you may not know that we don’t just talk the talk, we walk the walk or, as the case may be, the shopping aisles. We are always, always looking for ways to save money not just on our pet care but in our own expenditures. As self-employed writers, we are cutting cost corners every way we can.
One way we cut corners is to shop thrift stores. We buy everything–from our clothes and shoes to our household goods–at thrift stores for just a portion of its original cost. For the past decade, we’ve pretty much given up purchasing anything new except food!
One of our favorite thrift stores also houses a food bank where clients come to apply for food assistance. Of course, many of those clients also have pets and need to make their food dollars stretch for every member of their household. We’re glad to say that Nutrish is available at grocery stores including Walmart and HEB, the biggest chains in our area. And we’re very proud to share that this food, made in the USA, contains no by-products, no artificial flavors, and no artificial preservatives. The new Zero Grain™ food is also economical for pet parents looking for a grain-free option that won’t break the bank.
This week, we headed to our thrift store with coupons in hand for both Nutrish food and treats, sharing them with our fellow shoppers in the food bank and in the thrift store. We also distributed some Nutrish bags and goodies (including some food we purchased with coupons).
In today’s economy, many of us are still looking for great ways to cut corners without cutting quality…and I’m so happy to have had the chance to hand out coupons to caring pet parents who can use them to purchase quality food at an affordable price…and help homeless pets with their purchase!
