Saving Boo Again

Rising prices of gas and food really hit me this weekend. What a shock! I'm paying for Boo's trip back home next Saturday and I don't mind that at all but I've got to start cutting corners now.

Paying for just the gas for her temporary family to bring her home is going to cost me $500. I still owe the landlady $150 for a pet deposit too. So, I hope the following will help us all save some money. I'm on a search for coupons and free samples. Please let me know if you find any good ones.

"With rising prices, it is becoming more difficult for colony caretakers to feed feral cats, so the group All For Animals Rescue posted this helpful recipe on their blog. According to them, based on feeding 10 cats, this concoction saves anything from $20-$40 per month.

4 small cans of cheap food, such as Friskies, about 50¢ a can
3 cups of cheap dry food $2-4 a 3lb bag
2 packs of chicken hearts and giblets about $1.50
6 eggs
pack of salad macaroni
small pack of barley
1lb ground beef (cheap one)
1lb sardines"

I have a new Frugal Blog and you can find coupons ans stuff on there.... I just sent an offer for a free box of cheerios to my list today and will do a post on free pet related items, also mentioning your post here :(

I am so glad Boo is home though.
