24 Types Of Grocery Shoppers You Will Meet : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #3

YOU NEVER KNOW WHO YOU WILL BUMP INTO AT THAT GROCERY STORE   YES, you will meet them all and perhaps you fit many of the models of grocery shoppers I will be talking about today in hopes of helping you understand more about the depths of marketing and self-awareness. When grocery stores work on their marketing plans part of that process involves catering to the different types of grocery shoppers that visit their stores every single day. Marketing teams explore all facets of shoppers because they want to make sure they capture them and keep them coming back for more. This is how money is made all over the world. The reason for this is because different personalities tend to shop differently whether they buy more or less based on the way they take-on the grocery shopping experience. Keep in mind that grocery shoppers may shop based on their generation as well their likes. I read a recent article that said there were 4 types of grocery shoppers. Consider both the Baby Boomers and Generation X who may have more disposable income since one may be retired or are living near or debt free and the other at home […]

Common Cooking Mistakes You Can Easily Avoid : The GGC 2018 #2 Aug 6-12

Cooking mistakes may lead to food waste which is a big problem in Canada an around the world.   With so many people suffering from starvation it’s important to keep in mind that the food on your plate is food that someone else would love to eat. That doesn’t mean if you don’t like something that you have to eat it but to be cautious about the way you meal plan, prepare food and portion size. The average Canadian consumer throws out an estimated 170 kilograms of food a year Canada wastes so much food that a researcher likens it to tossing a quarter of your groceries away when you leave the supermarket. Source Just recently we were at my sister-in-law’s house for dinner which was amazing as always and before we left she offered us leftovers. She has the tendency to make far more food than needed but I think that’s just so she can send it home with us. We’re fine with that though however she did mention that she has a large grocery bill which led us to discuss a few things about her food planning which I will talk about down below. Another thing she did […]

Back To School Lunch Ideas (Nut Free) : The GGC 2018 #1 July 30- Aug 5

BUILD A MEAL PLAN THAT INCLUDES SCHOOL LUNCHES TO HELP SIMPLIFY THE SHOPPING PROCESS   Since our son will be starting junior kindergarten this September I thought it would be fitting to start a small series on back-to-school lunch ideas and tips for parents. We are first-time parents sending our child to school so we don’t know what to expect apart from what we’ve learned at the one school meeting we’ve been to, online searches and random chit-chat with other parents. Shipping your child off to school especially for the first time can be terrifying for parents and the children because everything about it is new from the space, teachers and children. If you’re child regularly visited a daycare for the first years of their lives then perhaps this type of scenario for your child may be similar and not so scary but for those who did not, it’s a whole new ballgame. Since Mrs. CBB stays home with our little guy we decided late last year to put him in a daycare setting one day a week to get him used to the process of going to school. The most important part of daycare has been the consistency she […]

6 Simple Inexpensive Meals For Unexpected Dinner Guests : The GGC 2018 #4 July 23-29

CAN YOU STAY FOR DINNER? THESE FIVE WORDS HAPPEN ALL TOO OFTEN AT OUR HOUSE WHICH IS WHY WE’RE PREPARED!   If there is potential for you to have unexpected dinner guests at your house it’s important that you have quick dinner tricks up your sleeve, just in case you have to say the magic words, “Can you stay for dinner?” This past week has been busy for our family as we’ve been helping my sister and brother-in-law empty out their 2700 sq ft. second residence which was filled top to bottom into a storage container. There was lots of stuff that was getting sold, donated and tossed in the bin. It certainly opened my eyes to the importance of minimizing what we own just in case we ever have to move or in the event of death or illness. The new owners of the house are moving in at the end of July and there was lots to get done so I was called in for assistance which was no trouble at all except I’m in the middle of doing my own back-yard renovations. The good part is that we are helping each other out so with the rain […]

FREE Ways To Supplement Your Food Supply In Canada : The GGC 2018 #3 July 16-22

ENHANCE YOUR FOOD SUPPLY WITH A LITTLE BIT OF WORK AND FUN   Your food supply is important for survival and although the first place most people go to is the supermarket there are other ways to get food without the extra costs in Canada. Since moving to Canada from the UK over 10 years ago I’ve had to learn about a country that I wasn’t too familiar with. I had no idea about farm land and the seasons in Canada certainly through me for a loop. If you’d lived in the UK then you know what I mean. Since becoming a permanent fixture in this glorious land I’ve learned the most important survival tips when it comes to food supply and it came from my wife and father-in-law. Most of all exploring Ontario by going on nature walks along with educating myself about what grows in Ontario has certainly increased my knowledge on the topic. I’m not pro by any means but I’ve had my fair share of experience in the woods, on the farms and processing and growing gardens from seed to know it’s one of the easiest ways to supplement a food supply when in need. It […]
