How to Save Money on Dog Treats | A Frugal Tip

Dog Treats

Want to save on dog treats?  I have a simple tip that will save you hundreds of dollars over the course of your dog’s life!

We have an 11-month-old chocolate lab puppy who I’ve been training for many of those months.  Most often her reward is a small treat or a pat on the head.  Like most dogs, I find she responds best and listens well when a treat is involved.

We first started buying Zuke’s Mini Naturals Dog Treats, and found them for a great price on Amazon.  Our dog responded well and loved her treats while training, but every few weeks we needed to re-order.  $8 for a 16-ounce bag was rather pricey.

Recently I discovered something I think would benefit most dog owners who reward their pets for good behavior.  Our dog loves regular dog food as treats.  A different brand than her regular food keeps her interest.  She will do anything I ask for just one morsel. :)

We found that our dog really likes Rachael Ray Nutrish Just 6 Limited Ingredient Dry Dog Food, 14-Pound Bag for $14.43 shipped.  The difference in price is amazing.  The dog food “treats” are $1 a pound versus the Zukes at $8 a pound. Over time, this will be quite a savings!

Homemade Wrinkle Releaser | Never Iron Again!

downy

I admit, I haven’t used my iron in years.  Yes, YEARS.  And it is all thanks to this time saving tip I learned over 8 years ago when my husband started wearing dress clothes to work everyday.  You won’t believe how easy it is to say goodbye to that iron!

Homemade Wrinkle Releaser | Never Iron Again!
 
A homemade wrinkle releaser that costs only a few cents and allows you to go iron-free for life!
Author:
Recipe type: Household Product
Ingredients
  • 1-3 Tablespoons Liquid Fabric Softener
  • Water
  • Empty Spray Bottle
Instructions
  1. Add a few tablespoons of your favorite fabric softener (Downy, Snuggle, etc.) to an empty spray bottle.
  2. Fill the bottle with water and shake gently.
  3. Spray on wrinkled clothing. Shake or smoothe out wrinkles.
  4. Hang or lay flat to dry.

I have found we like our wrinke releaser a little more concentrated.  We use at least 3 tablespoons of fabric softener per bottle.  Clothes smell fresh and wrinkles are gone.  This tip is a huge time and money saver!
