Well apparently i'm just awesome.
Here's a quote from the article:
What did we do? Just that!Ways to saveNo matter what brand you buy, there are lots of ways to save. For example:
Shop big-box stores. Overall, Consumer Reports found better prices at Target and Wal-Mart than at PetSmart and Petco. Compare prices everywhere before you head to the specialty shops.
Buy generic. Store-brand dog food is often cheaper than other brands. Compare the labels on a store brand and a mid-range name brand. If they have the same nutritional content, you'll save money going generic.
... we shopped around
... we compared labels
and we went with that awesome generic and cheap brand from Walmart that had the quality we wanted for our pup.
After that post I thought it was funny that Walmart was mysterious running out of that brand of dog food for a week or two after I did that post...
So if you don't want to take my advice... you can listen to them!
