Jean’s Puppy Haul- Saving 63% on Purchases + Free Stuff

When shopping for your new puppa friend remember that don’t have to get everything at full price. You can buy from a friend, use coupons, see what you have lying around, etc. When shopping for Jean I used Petco’s Welcome to the Family coupon book and coupon calendar as well as PetSmart’s Puppy Guide. See my reviews on those here. I also made use of what I had in the house and used other family pets’ old things.

T O Y S

  • Petco Petco Brand Tennis Ball (99 cents)
  • Petco Leaps & Bounds Little Chews Teething Ring  ($8)
  • Petco Nylabone Bacon Flavored Moderate Chew Tiny Toy Twin Pack ($5.79)
  • PetSmart Top Paw Giraffe Plush with Squeaker ($3)
  • Frog squeaker from my Mom
  • Stingray plush I won at a carnival

Little note: I make sure to wash these before I give them to my puppa. If they’re rubbery I wash them like dishes and if they’re plushes I wash them with her blankets.

H Y G I E N E

  • Petco SoPhresh XL 5 cup holding Puppy Pads 10 count ($9)
  • Petco SoPhresh Oxy Lift Dog Stain & Odor Remover Spray (Free with any SoPhresh puppy pads purchase and coupon) (This actually cost more than the pads but was free)
  • PetSmart Merrick Small Mint Dental Chew (Free with a coupon)
  • Dawn dish soap from home
  • Small towel from my Mom

F O O D

  • PetSmart 6 IAMS Wet Puppy Food Cans ($1.49 each)
  • Petco Instinct Healthy Cravings Chicken Recipe (3 oz) – (Free with coupon)
  • Petco Whole Hearted Chicken and Pea Dry Puppy Food (5 lbs.) – (Free with $20 purchase)
  • Petco Instinct Raw Boost Mixers Chicken (1 oz) – (Free with coupon)

A C C E S S O R I E S

  • Petco Bond & Co. 2 collar set – 10% off with a coupon ($9)

C O M F O R T

  • Blankets and pillows from home
  • Small, out-grown kennel from my dad’s big girl poodle

S T O R A G E

  • Wal-Mart 3 Compartment Organizer ($10)
  • Baskets from home
  • Over-the-door shoe rack from home

In total we’ve spent $57 instead of $90 on things we bought, not including how much the stuff we got from home or from family/friends would’ve been. That’s like paying only 63% whenever I shop for my baby dog! Honestly, not eating out and shopping selfishly + using coupons makes it so much easier financially to support a pup.

What did you get on your first puppy haul?

Xoxo,

Jean and Giada
