How to send your husband to the supermarket successfully : The Grocery Game Challenge #5 June 29-July 6, 2015

HE MAY JUST NEED YOUR HELP   If you want your husband to return home from the supermarket victorious you may have to start with a bit of shopping 101 with him. Reality is that most men have NO interest in the grocery store. Why? Most of us have no patience to go up and down aisles searching for things on a list. Not all men you see at the grocery store though are forced to be there (circumstances) or asked to go by their significant other. However, we need to eat so whether we are married or not sometimes we do go to the grocery store hunting for food. I know many of my single friends before they meet their girlfriends made ordering food at the nearest fast food joint more of a priority than putting on the chef’s apron. Secretly many of us men have no idea how to grocery shop but we will never tell you that. it’s easier just to go in and wing it than ask for help how to find something. It’s not macho just like we will never ask for directions even if we’ve been driving around for an hour in circles. Not […]

5 Healthy Office Snacks you should stock for cravings : The Grocery Game Challenge #4 June 22-28,2015

HEALTHY SNACK IDEAS FOR ADULTS   Are you wondering how to eat healthy at work? Easy! A healthy eating plan is a must so bring a nutritious lunch plus office snacks that won’t attack your waist-line and budget. Office snacks are probably one of the main reasons people gain weight when they don’t want to especially if they are unhealthy snacks being consumed. Whether you get in your car to drive to the office or you work from home in an office environment like many of my freelance blogger friends, eating snacks will be a part of your day. My friend and personal finance blogger John over at Frugal Rules just posted his amazing transformation “How I lost 100Lbs” and he works from home. He has learned just how important eating healthy is and working out. Empty calories add up over time so it may not happen after one office snack but you keep eating chips, chocolate bars, cookies or other office snacks brought in by your fellow workers and you may just wish you held back a little. Working in an office environment has provided me with insight into what happens when those snack cravings hit. If I were […]

Top 5 Reasons A Food Budget Is Financially Smart : The Grocery Game Challenge #3 June 15-21, 2015

KNOW WHERE YOUR MONEY IS GOING   A food budget is a huge part of the overall budget in any household whether you decide to use one or not. If you don’t believe me think about how much you pay each time you go to the grocery store and use that to work out your average yearly food expenses. Even though that’s probably the worst way to do it because you probably spend more than you think you are it’s somewhat of a ballpark figure of your yearly expenses. Then again for those of you who do the math this way your final number likely isn’t that important to you but it should be. If you are someone with more money than you know what to do with you might not have a care in the world to know the amount it’s costing you to fuel your body. For those of us who have to worry about balancing our monthly budget a food budget in my opinion is an imperative step to overcoming debt, saving money and balancing the budget. The fact is that whether you document your expenses or choose to just spend your money freely the money will […]

Is Price Just An Excuse for Buying Junk Food? : The Grocery Game Challenge #2 June 8-14, 2015

YOU ONLY GET ONE BODY   Healthy food and Junk food is expensive no matter which way we look at it. The price of our grocery budget jumps depending on how we decide to spend our money and on which products. Healthy eating habits start at home and takes work which means yes you need to put some effort into what you put into your body. Your mindset before you set off to the grocery store will determine just what you will purchase and fall prey to. The reason is simple, the grocery store plays to our senses and our wallet. Buying unhealthy foods typically happen because we want to buy them, packaging is nice, they taste and look good or we believe that’s all we can afford to buy. I remember a time a mate of mine back home told me it was cheaper for him as a single guy to eat out every day rather than cook. I doubt that was the case as I had never seen him cook a meal in the entire time I had been friends with him. He had no desire to be in the kitchen so eating out and buying junk food […]
