No doubt you have seen that TV show “Extreme Couponing” where a family goes shopping and pays only a few dollars for their $900+ grocery bill. What I have yet to see is any dog food, cat food or livestock feed go into that grocery cart. What us pet owners need is an Extreme Couponing show to save money on our expenses.
I do know a few tricks that help me save money on pet food. I visit the pet food manufactures websites and they often have coupons or “clubs” you can join to get coupons or samples sent to your home. Many of them have programs where you save the “proof of purchase” and send it in to them for a coupon worth a free bag of what ever you were buying.
Being that I have been a large pet (read this as horse) owner for quite some time now, I still wonder why I get emails forwarded to me by my friends that have links in them for nail saloons (the last time I had my nails done, I broke them all trying to separate 2 dogs from killing each other) and victoria’s secret coupons. Let’s face it, when there is a sick animal in the barn at night I need PJ’s to scramble out of bed in and not some flimsy lacy thing.
So if you are forwarding coupons to your pet owning friends, please send something they can really use.
