I'm really feeling gazelle these days. I get so excited and obsessed when I'm like this. It's so much fun!
I'm seriously considering bartering eggs for olive oil since we are out and we only have about $10 left in the grocery budget for the month. Maybe my mom would be willing?
We are going to my nieces birthday party today so that will be fun. We were planning on bringing some eggs, so maybe I can get some olive oil out of the deal. :-)
Our one budget killer is that my Siamese has been throwing up, pretty much since the summertime, but it's been worse lately. We have him on pepcid which helps, but we finally just changed his diet to the vets recommendation of a grain free single source novel protein. (like turkey or duck - no chicken or beef) She sent us a link to a website that really recommends wet food over dry (if not making your own)- we have always fed them Avoderm dry, and I thought that was good for them, but apparently it is not.
So now we are feeding them twice a day (instead of free feeding). The new cat overeats and can't handle free feeding. She is seriously getting fat! The cans would cost us $100/ mo at the store(!) but I spent time yesterday researching prices and found that if I buy the large ones on amazon through subscribe & save every OTHER month, including DH's protein that he already gets, will give us the five orders for a 20% discount which brings the cost down to $50/ mo for the cat food and saves us an additional $15% on the protein! So, this is a huge increase from our $28 for 14 lbs which lasted almost two months, but he hasn't been throwing up on this food at all, and hopefully we can stop the pepcid soon. But, I am never getting a dog! Two cats is more than enough!
