Any tips on ways to save?!  How'd you guys do this month?!


  1. Wow! You guys more than cut your expenses in half from the previous month. Unfortunately, our base monthly expense is $100 because our apartment complex charges "pet rent" - 50 per pup! I'll have to check out Mr. Chewy and see if we can save some money on dog food, but I'm likely to just spend it all on toys.

  2. Our dog walking costs alone are 5x your monthly spending! Ugh...need to find a job where I can work from home.

  3. Love Mr Chewy! This month I found an online raw meat distributor in my area, so that will help me save on food from now on! I did splurge on some new toys. Do you give Havi any bones or long-lasting chews? I think Parker and Skye are addicted to bully sticks...
