I have only started feeding mice to my tarantulas recently. Before that, it was crix, beetles, worms, and anything else I could find in my parents' yard, garden, and the forest behind their house. I now keep a colony of beetles and mealworms in a tank as my stable food supply for the tarantulas. About once a month I would go out and by a couple dozen crix as a change. As for the mice, I want to avoid emotional attachments so I buy them and drop them into the t enclosers right away.
