September 2015 Expenses

One day late, due to yesterday being Bruce's birthday.

Keeping track of my dog related expenses is easy for me, as I use a budgeting app to track all my expenses, and pay for nearly everything from my checking account.  It keeps accountable.

Some months are quite expensive, while others are relatively cheap.  It all balances out in the end, and can give folks an overview of the costs associated with caring for three raw fed dogs in the Midwest.

September 2015 Expenses

Food-$212.12
Health-$16.42
Miscellaneous-$10.00

Total-$238.54

This month was very inexpensive!  Expenses are relative, and everyone is different, but this was a very "cheap" month for me.  Food made up the bulk of the expenses.  I placed an order for green tripe and beef kidney from My Pet Carnivore.  I purchased beef heart, complete ground lamb, goat tongue and goat liver from a farming operation/raw food supplier in southern Indiana.  I also purchased chicken leg quarters, pork loin, and a bag of I and Love and You dehydrated raw from the grocery store.

Health was the cost of Bruce's prescription, and the miscellaneous costs was three new stainless steel bowls.

I am quite happy, as this is my least expensive month since March of this year.  Last month was nearly twice this amount.  I am contemplating a year end post, with total expenses for the year.

  1. Good month! I think the year end cost is a great idea! I may do that, too.

  3. I think year end is a good idea...that would give a monthly average too. I still keep meaning to sit down and do this, and I'd love to compare especially at year end.
