Default Why does Grain Free have to be so expensive?!

We are rotating Wellness CORE, Acana Ranchlands (I think), and Canidae GF, and it's freaking breaking my bank. All the bags are a good $60-$75 bucks for 30 pounds, which is fine now, but with adding two more dogs in the next two-three dogs, it's going to be insane. I mean, the bags last a good while, but I'm going to have to start buying two to three bags at a time eventually as to not be at the store once a week.

I've tried feeding 4Health and Innova and wasn't thrilled with either.. Coat was greasy, weird poops, neither were grain free as far as I know... Do you rotate grain foods with grain free? Harlow does okay with grain, but thrives with GF. We've had Rider on a grain food once, and it didn't go over well.

Before moving to CO, we were on Diamond, which she actually did really well on. But, that was before I learned what was good and bad food. In CO, we were living with other people, so we pretty much sucked it up and had her eat a decent, but still grain, food from Kirkland. When we finally got out on our own again, we switched to completely grain free, with 4Health once when we were short on money, and with Innova before I realized the bag I had bought was grain inclusive.

Wow, this got big. I guess this is mainly a rant? Unless somebody has tips on where to find cheap GF kibble at a local store. I really don't want to be shipping foods.
