The last time I bought litter I bought that to try to save money. I got the 17lb box, though. I got it probably 2 weeks ago? The box itself is empty, but the litter is still in their boxes. I normally use Tidy Cat, and I like the arm and hammer better b/c it scoops much better and the clumps don't fall apart, therefore I don't have to change out the whole thing as often. Also with it their pee doesn't make it all the way through the litter and doesn't make it nasty. I don't like it b/c it is VERY VERY dusty. It filled my whole laundry room with a cloud of dust when I first poured it. Even when I clean it out it throws up dust. I bought litter again a few days ago and I went back to Tidy Cats. I've just been scooping and then adding more of the Tidy Cats onto the arm and hammer.

If you scoop every day it should last you at least a month. I like the Arm and Hammer stuff.

If $$ is an issue (and who isn't it an issue for these days?!?!) you may be interested in this thread:

And a later thread talking about the chicken feed stuff:

Definitely sounds like it costs a lot less. I'm not in a rural area, so it would be a trek to find the stuff and I just haven't gotten around to it yet. But sounds like a great idea!

At Wal-Mart the 20 lb size of Tidy Cat is only $8. For one cat, it would likely last all month.

Use coupons! Check your Sunday newspaper or ask friends that have cats, check online. It's very easy to get Tidy Cat coupons and they're usually for a dollar off. I don't use the stuff, so I think I may even have several laying about.

Most Tidy Cat jugs of litter right now have a $1.00 off coupon in them.

You might also check this web site:

It has some very good printable and on-line coupons. Just as a quick search, I found $1.50 off "Yesterday's News" litter.

If you have any nearby, you might check any of the "dollar" stores, such as Dollar General, Family Dollar, Dollar Tree, etc.

I have been buying the fresh step from BJ's for $15.00 for 40lbs of litter. I can't complain about the price and I like the litter never any smell but it is dusty.

I like shopping at PetSmart because they break down the litter by a per lb. price. Arm & Hammer Super Scoop Fragrance Free is by far my favorite of the cheaper options. Right now we are using Equisicat (sp?) because it's even cheaper. I tried the Wal-Mart store brand litter, it was ok. I haven't tried the Costco stuff yet.

The big Arm & Hammer box should last 1 month for 1 cat, you could probably push it to 5 weeks though.
