How To Return Food To A Grocery Store Successfully : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #4 May 21-27

YOUR MONEY IS IMPORTANT TO YOU SO MAKE SURE YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR   Step-by-Step I’m going to walk you through how you can return food to a grocery store so the next time you’re not a happy customer you know how to get your money back! I don’t often return food but when I do I make sure I get our money back How many times have you eaten something new or food that you were familiar with from the grocery store and you just didn’t like it? I’m betting you can count a few times on one hand in your lifetime but I want to know, what do you do about it? Today, I’m going to walk you through exactly how we would return food to a grocery store including what we would say and do. When I first moved to Canada there was no way in hell I was returning anything food or not. In fact, I had no idea how to grocery shop in Canada which meant I was starting from scratch. I’m not alone, this happens every day even with people born and raised here. Today, my views and experience have greatly changed […]

8 Costly Baking Ingredients To Include On Your Flyer Watch-List : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #3 May 14-20

STOCKING UP IS THE ONLY WAY TO GET WHAT YOU WANT FOR LESS   Walking down the baking aisle at the grocery store or even the bulk food shop is cringe-worthy at times when you start to see the prices of baking ingredients. Here’s the thing though, you have to understand that food costs money and eating well is possible on a budget but YOU must do the work to find the deals. If you are a savvy shopper you need a flyer watch-list which simply means a master list of products that you WILL use but are far more expensive than others you purchase. This means that you will keep an eye on prices for those products in particular because when the time¬† and price is right you should stock up. This is where a reserve fund or stockpile budget really comes in handy for the everyday consumer. Baking ingredients have always been higher to the consumer who values pre-made products over baking only because we see what we want to see when it comes to pricing. It’s far more convenient to buy a 6 pack of muffins for $5 rather than a bag of flour for $8 especially […]

The Best Ways To Monitor Grocery Spending With-In A Budget : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #2 May 7-13

STOP TRYING TO COMPLICATE SOMETHING SIMPLE AS YOUR GROCERY BUDGET AND WATCH HOW FAST YOU MAKE IMPROVEMENTS.   If you’re concerned about your grocery spending habits and wondering if they fall with-in your budget than there are a few things you can do to simplify the process. Not everyone has wiggle room in their grocery budget however if you find that you are consistently jumping to the other side of the budget then perhaps an increase is in order. CBB reader Paul sent me in a question which I feel is something that many people struggle with especially if they are trying to understand where their money is going. We recently did this for my mother-in-law who is a free shopper which means she goes into the grocery store unarmed. She buys whatever she fancies. It wasn’t until I tallied up how much she had spent over the course of 18 days did my mind spin. Her mini trips to the grocery store every day just to keep busy are costing her hundreds in petrol and she spends just as much as a family of 4. It’s amazing how fast the small stuff adds up when you have NO plan […]

The Ultimate Guide For Preparing Easy Camping Meals : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #1 Apr 30-May 6

CAMPING FOOD MADE SIMPLE AND AFFORDABLE   The meaning ‘going to camp‘ differs for everyone as soon as the season opens up. Enjoying the great outdoors is a passion for many people with or without a tent, camper van or cabin and little to no cooking appliances. What constitutes the ultimate camping food? Well, I had a chance to speak to seasoned campers which included my sister, in-laws and many CBB readers who jumped at the chance to share their camping food stories with me. I was amazed at what recipes people were willing to make on a campfire and just how important the BBQ really is when one is cooking away from home. Although some of you campers might have a microwave stashed away for many there is no room in the camping space for such kitchen tools. Roughing it in the woods and enjoying nature is what camping is all about, so I’ve been told. The most important camping tools for the rugged campers are cast iron everything, tin-foil and knowing how to start a camp-fire to cook your food. If you have a Dutch oven to use when you are camping it’s important to make sure that […]
