How to Save More on Groceries: Jan 29-Feb 4th, 2016

How to Save More on Groceries

We are now in our third week of me sharing how I am saving on my grocery bill every week. I want to thank you my readers for sharing this post. Since I have started this series it seems every news show in the country has done a segment on how to save or slash your grocery bill and gues what they are sharing the same tips I am.

It seems we all want to save while still eating healthy meals.

You can visit my first post in the series to find my Friday morning process. Yes, I am here with my tea as I prep this post having just finished checking my Flipp app and doing up my menu plan for the week.

So what is on tap for this week?

I am doing another round of the 21 day fix diet from Beachbody. If you would like more info on the diet, do ask. I love that it is all about eating well and portion control.

Remember I use my 2 favourite apps to help me save. Flipp and Caddle help me make sure I find the best prices so I can price match and then Caddle gives cash back on engagement and purchases.
