The grocery game challenge Aug 12-18, 2013 #2- Grocery shopping for seniors

Seniors And Weekly Grocery Shopping Services  I can remember my grandmother, a spunky little lady with a British attitude that could swipe you off your feet. She was strong, independent and wealthy and wouldn’t have anyone take her places. She wanted to do it all on her own because like many older seniors they don’t want to feel like they have to depend on others to get things done in their life as they age unless they are forced to for health reasons. My grandmother would come over to my parents house for Sunday dinner and all she would talk about was food and recipes because she loved to cook. She also loved to grocery shop because back in her time everything was created homemade and there was no room for convenience foods yet she was a smart shopper. Food shopping list I asked my mother the phone other day about my grandmother while I called so I could learn more about her to share with all of you. My mother told me that my grandmother knew what she was going to eat ahead of time for the week so meal planning was essential to her saving money and saving […]

PF Weekly grab a brew #32: Catch me if you can

I’m A Qualified Professional Now Open Wide Catch me if you can, another Frank Abagnale Jr was on the loose and he was just showing Canada how easy it is to be whoever we want to be. Ya, that was a true story that film and why not, if people can get away with something they will do it. Geesh, I don’t think that was what the motivational aspect behind the sayings ‘be all you can be’ or ‘you can do whatever you want if you put your mind to it’ was meant for. Caught you I was a little more than shocked when I read about an underground dentist who goes under the name of Dr. David Wu (not his real name) in B.C who has provided dentistry services to patients in an apartment for many years. This guy has NO, and I repeat NO training as a dentist, whatsoever in Canada. That means that no dentistry schools in Canada have ever seen this guy let alone have them in their data base as a medical professional. Seriously, if you are gripping the bottom of your seat I know what you’re going through. It’s bad enough when I have […]

The grocery game challenge Aug 5-11, 2013, #1 – Skip the shopping cart and save

Carry Your Groceries And Save Money Whether you call it a cart basket, grocery basket, shopping basket, hand basket or even a basket shopping cart if you use one of these nifty baskets to grocery shop it may save you money. A grocery game challenge fan Christine (lovely lady) posted her shop this past week and was talking about how skipping the shopping cart and opting for a shopping basket might save money when grocery shopping. It never really occurred to me but in some way she may have hit the nail on the head with this one, only because when space is limited you can only buy so much. So I went over by $5.00 this week but because I was under so far this month I managed to be under for the month!!! So that $15.25 was dropped on the overage to bring it down just a little. I think not getting a cart and just getting what the two of us could carry at NF helped as we were loaded down pretty good by the time we got to the till!! It’s not much but it is a start for me…. Now to keep it up… and […]
