I agree even with things tight you can stretch the budget I
personally buy one bag of the really great seed a month and
mix it with a mid level But than I also instead of buying beak
appetite and that type stuff make my own couscous and carrots
and such It is cheaper buying grains and seeds at a local
Common Market or wholesale foods natural foods etc than to go
buying it made by a large company. i save a lot more money
making my own bird muffins and stuff.
I stick with baking and cooking from scratch though as too
many processed stuff like Jiffy corn meal etc has too many
additives sugars etc,
i have loads of great recipes
