Changing how I buy pet food saved me money and made my life more convenient.
- Making small changes in your daily life can save you money.
- This small change may help you keep more money in your pocket if you have pets.
A new year presents the perfect opportunity to make financial changes. Even small changes add up over time. There’s one simple change that I recently made that will make my life easier and save me a bit of cash. I changed how I purchase pet food. If you’re a pet owner, you may be able to change how you buy your pet food to save money. Find out how I’ll save $100 this year:
Owning pets can be expensive, especially if you have pets with health concerns. Over the years, we’ve had our fair share of surprise vet bills. But one thing I didn’t realize was how expensive prescription pet food is. One of our cats has to follow a strict diet and must eat prescription food — and he eats a lot of it!
Until the beginning of this year, we’d go to the store every 2 to 3 weeks to buy more pet food. Since it’s prescription food, we had to go to specific stores in our area and show a prescription card. Well, that’s no longer the case.
A few weeks ago, I set everything up to order our pet food online and get it shipped directly to our home. Not only that, but I also set up auto-shipments. Many popular pet retailers offer auto-ship services — including Chewy, Petco, and PetSmart. You can have your pet food, treats, and supplies shipped to your home regularly, so you never run out.
Ordering pet food online will save me $100
In addition to making your life more convenient, you can also save money by using an auto-ship service. Many retailers offer an additional discount on auto-ship orders. With this discount, I’m saving 5% on the cost of my pet food. This will result in a savings of $100 in 2022. While it’s not a ton of money, it’s something.
It’s also nice because I won’t have to worry about running to the store every few weeks. Plus, I no longer need to carry heavy trays of canned food in and out of my vehicle. This change only took me a few moments to set up, and it will save me money and make my life easier.</…….
