I have been doing what I can to cut back on debt. Pet grooming was costing $40 bimonthly. So I decided to go out to pets mart and I purchased this pet grooming kit. It cost $65. Which I hated to pay at the time. However, after I researched on the internet how to groom a schnauzer I gave them a try. So glad I did because it payed for itself in 4 months(2 haircuts). It has saved me $$hundreds since then. If you have a pet, I highly recommend doing the grooming on your own if your looking to save easy money. My directions were super easy to follow. This is the link I used. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8CoFDCGxwIs This is the directions for a minature schnauzer.
