How much money do you spend on pet food? Quite a lot I'm sure but there's a way you can cut down on how much you spend feeding your pet. You can make a home-made diet for your pets if you can cheaply obtain what you'll be using. In some places the food can be cheaper while in others the cost would only be slightly lower than buying pet food, something which wouldn't justify spending too much time making food for your pets yourself. But point is that one should trying to calculate the costs. If there's a chance that you'll save more, then go for it.
