Can Priceless be a little less expensive?

Dog/cat food filter: our priceless animals are eating us out of house and home, but that's because we feed them super expensive food. Help me find food that is good quality (or even suggestions on food I can make), but won't break the bank.

We have a 7 yo Golden Retriever that we adopted a year ago from a rescue organization. At the time, the rescue group had him on Solid Gold Hudenflocken, which while super high quality is also super high expensive ($52.99 for a 33lb bag at Petco). We've had him on it for the entire year and he's been fine (but gassy). Is there a good substitute that isn't as expensive? Are there any other foods that I can give him to supplement so that maybe I make the dry food go a little longer? He gets 2.5 cups per day (he's 65lbs).
We also have two cats who are on Prescription Diet W/D because one of them had a urinary issue as a kitten. The other never had any urinary issues but we fed them together so it was easier to give them the same food. I want to try giving the one that doesn't have a urinary tract problem 'normal' (read less expensive) food - he gets dry and wet food and will eat just about anything. Any suggestions on good quality cat food from cat lovers out there?
