Question Going Through a 30lb Bag of Food

I currently feed raw, but I'm trying to figure out how much it costs in comparison to feeding kibble. I'm not going back to kibble (Logan can't handle it) so it's more or less just a curiousity thing. My question is, to those of you who feed more than one boxer (boxers only please), roughly how long does it take you to go through a 30lb bag of food?

It takes Maggie and Mongo about 2.5 weeks to go through a 28 pound bag of Earthborn Holistic grain free kibble. It's $53.99 a bag plus tax.

I have honestly never marked down when we buy a bag compared to when we buy the next one. Both of my girls are on BB Freedom. Murphy is still on puppy food & Pheona is of course on adult so I'm buying 2 bags at a time. So I want to say it lasts a little longer than if I would be feeding them from the same bag.

Jaxon and Belah eat different food...but if I were to combine the weights of the bags I would guesstimate it would probably last about 2 -2 1/2 weeks.

You know I don't know. I buy at least 3-4 bags each time I go anf they are the largest I can get. 30-50lbs I think. A bag lasts a few week.

I only have one but I would say every three weeks we go through a 30 pound bag... maybe more if he's growing or really active. We pay 55 bucks a bag.

We are paying $90 (including taxes) for a 24 lb. bag of food and it lasts about 2-2 1/2 weeks. It is a bit expensive so we're thinking of switching him to Blue Buffalo Freedom which will cost us about $66 (including taxes) for a 24 lb. bag. Besides, he seems to be shedding a whole lot more since we switched him to the Fromm grain free formula. He'll lay on the couch and leave a visible amount of fur behind when he gets up. It wasn't like that when he was on the regular Fromm formula! But I would like to stick with grain free kibble so we're going to try the BB since I've heard nothing but good things about it.

For 4 dogs I was going through 5 bags of TOTW a month. So I guess on average a 30 lb bag would last 1 dog 3 weeks.

I paid $69.99 plus tax which brought it up to $79 a bag.

$79 x 5 bags = $395 a month

Currently I feed 7.5-8lbs of Raw daily for the same 4 dogs. On average I pay about $1.50lb which works out to $360 a month.
