Economical is more than a question of money spent on the food itself. It has to include the amount that needs to be fed and the efficacy of the food at maintaining a dog's health . . . and reducing vet expenses.

TOTW high priarie with raw chicken. I get nice pieces of chicken for about .50 a pound so I feed chicken with a little bit of kibble every day. My dogs are doing great! I should add that their kibble is a 50/50 mix of TOTW with EVO RM, but you can feed straight TOTW to cut down on costs.

Well, if you start buying more things there. Its 50 dollars a year, that isn't bad at all! We buy paper towels there, dog/cat food, cat litter, canned dog food for Lucy (Which lasts her forever lol), our swiffer supplies, certain food items. Some things are cheaper at Costco, while other things are a waste of money.

Is Costco like Sam's Club, where you can buy stuff as a non-member and just pay a slightly higher price? We don't have a Costco here so I have no idea. I think stuff at Sam's, even if you have to pay a small percentage more than the member price, can still be a good deal, so I wonder if Costco is the same..?

No, you can't even enter the store without a member card.
