Save Money with Thrift Stores
What was NOT so fun, however, is that Sally came to use with a stomach bug. I won't go into details...but let's just say her new nickname is "Pudding Butt". Regardless, we had to buy some new bedding for our new cuddle buddy - so we stopped by our local Goodwill on the way home from the vet. Less than $5 later, we were on our way with four very fluffy dog quilts and blankets, barely used.
We're lucky that we live in Colorado, where everyone and their mom has a dog. So our thrift stores are loaded with gently used dog supplies. I've noticed travel-approved crates, stainless steel bowls, and bedding very cheap during my shopping trips to our local thrift stores. As much as I enjoy buying my fur babies new toys and furniture - after this week's, er, explosions...I'm happy to pop in and buy some good products for just cents on the dollar of what I would have paid elsewhere.
On top of saving money, you're also helping a good cause AND saving items from the landfill!
