grocery game monthly challenge

Free product coupons and promo codes that expire before the product: The Grocery Game Challenge #3 Aug 11-17, 2014

PROMO MARKETING ON PRODUCTS   Promo codes and free product coupons that you find on everyday products you buy are there to entice you as a customer to make a purchase. I’m not talking about coupon codes you might find on McDonald’s promotional offers or Tim Hortons coffee cups either. Today I’m talking about coupons and promo coupon codes on products you get at the supermarket. I know many of you love to source out coupons in the grocery store or anywhere you can get your hands on them. We do to because savings in our pocket is worth the effort. Coupons seem to fly off the pads faster than most customers can get to them so manufacturers like to promote product savings via putting the coupon or promo codes right on the product. It’s also a great marketing tool because as a customer you see the coupon right on the product rather than hunting it down. Even cases of pop or canned goods have coupons on the packaging.   Promo Codes   I think it’s a brilliant idea to lure customers to purchase or even test out new product although not all free product coupons and promo codes are […]

Not having one of the best paying jobs is embarrassing

NEVER GIVE UP ON YOUR LIFE   We all have dreams of graduating school and finding one of the best paying jobs around so we can get a kick-start on life because money is important just to survive. Last week we talked about a CBB fan whose financial success turned her friends towards jealousy and it happens because people give up on themselves and focus on what they wish they could have. My wife told me after she graduated the first time it was hard for her to find one of the best paying jobs in her field unless she moved into the heart of Toronto. Most often finding the rewarding careers means you literally have to seek them out. Not everyone is in a position to move to secure their passions but for those that move to the big cities to live out their dreams many of them end up going back home. Some people move to different countries after graduating just to gain valuable work experience then either stay, move on or move back to their hometown. Passion in life means doing what you love in hopes that one day you look back and are happy you took […]

White Chocolate Cherry Muffin

FRESH FRUIT MUFFINS   I’ve never made a white chocolate cherry muffin before but since I had the ingredients on hand I thought I’d get creative with fresh cherries. I am happy I did because they turned out so moist but not sugary like most commercial muffins. I enjoy making white muffins once in a while adding in fresh fruits that I have on hand. One of my favourite white muffins is the blueberry muffin and on occasion I splurge making chocolate chip muffins. Muffins have long since been a favourite as a breakfast muffin or even a snack muffin. I’m pretty sure many of you would rather reach for a muffin over a donut for breakfast but be careful as they are not all created equally in terms of calories and fat content. I find it’s not often though that we see a fresh cherry muffin at the shops and to be honest they should be because they are just as good as any other fruit muffin. A muffin, especially a white muffin is simply cake that you can eat with your hands. So when you think you are eating a healthy muffin just because it has fresh fruit […]

Lying on your resume can get you fired: The Saturday Weekend Review #84

GOOD RESUMES TELL THE TRUTH   Writing a resume for many people is just as intimidating a task as is creating a budget. I know they are on two different spectrums but it’s true. I can’t tell you how often I’ve heard people over the years cringe about having to write a resume and seeking out support to do so. I remember when I was in school we were taught to write a basic resume. Although it takes time to master it has to be done and visited often over the course of employment with any career you are in. Failing to update your resume only makes the job harder when it comes time to apply for a new role. Resume writing and interviews is such a huge topic which I hope to write more about in the future but this morning I read an article about what people lie about on their resume. I was not shocked at what I read because people lie everyday just to become someone they are not or to bump someone else out of the employment race. One of the most common lies we’ve all heard is that someone “quit” a job when in […]
