Alrighty, I’m getting my own eating-out-as-default mode back in hand. There was one mishap yesterday, but I’ve put a wee bit more effort into eating at home, and can safely say I won’t be eating-my-holiday-savings away this year. Hooray.
But then there are the dacshunds. Raw food? Treats? Chickenwing Tips (OK’d by the vet)? and now they look with disdain upon their kibble? I jest, but overspending on our pets is a secret vice, and I’m guilty as charged. A quick google search on ‘frugality’ and ‘dogs’ yielded some extraordinary results: a frugality discussion about using pets for warmth to save on heat, another who cuts old belts down to size for collars and leashes, and way too many frugality tips on saving money by serving hot dogs at parties, to which my daschunds took great exception.
