Please help with my dog food budget..

I'm trying to figure out how much I'll be spending on dog food per month. I've been hearing such great things about Innova Evo... so I think thats what I'm going to use. The big bag is roughly $40 (from what I can tell -- had to look online for it so far) and its about 28lbs. How long do you think that would last for a 30lb dog?

I also am considering just feeding raw... but I'm intimidated.
... For now, though... I'd like to use Innova.

I currently feed one of the Nutro products (30-40 per big bag, which is 35-40 pounds, depending.) Those last in the range of a month for an about80 lb german shepherd. I am going to start her on a raw diet as soon as this batch of kibble ends (or sooner), though, and Im pretty sure it will be easier financially!
So I could roughly estimate that the bag will last me two months (since the dog is only about 30lbs)?

Two months would be good.
We feed Innova, I spend 45 dollars on a bag (after tax and such). We have a 70 pound dog who gets 3 cups a day and a bag lasts me about 5-6 weeks.
So I could possibly get 10-12 weeks out of it for a dog who weighs half as much? That would be really cool.
I go through one large bag of EVO every 3.5 weeks feeding 2 German Shepherds, so I would think it would last you at least 10 weeks but probably more. A 30 lber would only need a max of a cup of EVO
