I have blogged before about ways I save money on groceries. Recently, I stumbled on a new way that has been really paying off. I have been slashing my grocery bill in half with the added bonus of getting giddy at the store every time I look at my receipt. The only downside is the stares I get as I skip through the aisles whistling while forest creatures frolic around me (okay, so that doesn’t happen, but that is how good I feel after shopping).
The Grocery Game is a list you subscribe to that tells you when items reach their lowest prices through combinations of sales and coupons. I know a lot of people do this themselves, but I find it to be so time consuming with a big stack of circulars and coupons, comparing and running from store to store, that what I save in money I lose in valuable time. This site has the added benefit of finding unadvertised sales and tracking trends so that you buy at truly the lowest price rather than just when an item is on sale.
The website states that you will spend the first few months in a stockpiling phase and won’t see the real savings until after that, but I am found I saved $40-50 right off the bat. I am really stockpiling though. I need to get creative about storage and have “borrowed” some space in my parents freezer for a little while, but it is worth it.
The added deal is that if you join, you get the first 4 weeks for only $1. After that it is $5 every 8 weeks. Still very reasonable. If you would like to check it out, I would love it if you would use my email for a referral. I am not getting paid anything to promote them, but I do earn free weeks for referrals. I would not promote them however if I didn’t believe in the program.
My referral email is my personal email so don’t use the one on this website. However, if you are ,email me at thediaperdiaries (at) gmail (dot) com and I will share my other email with you. How exciting is that? I think that alone could just be incentive enough. The intrigue of it all.
