Unhealthy Food Choices Are Silent Budget Killers : The Grocery Game Challenge 2017 #2 Nov 6-12

HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES ARE JUST THAT, CHOICES YOU MAKE   Do you have an unhealthy food list? Discretionary foods also known as empty calories or junk food are those you ponder buying because you know they aren’t the best for your health and budget. The reason they are silent killers is because 9 times out of 10 they are cheaper to buy however it’s not really as inexpensive as you really think. Convenient yes, frugal not so much. Unhealthy food is not only saturated in the fast-food  and restaurant market but highly advertised at the grocery store. The only way to get around it is to avoid it. You almost need to pretend it doesn’t exist. Many shoppers are opting for click and collect, food delivery and online grocery shopping simply to avoid the temptation of buying foods they don’t need or aren’t necessarily healthy for them. Keep in mind what is healthy to one person is not to another but for simplicity we’ll stick to junk food and pre-made meals. What’s your motivation?- Ask yourself that and answer it. Smart shopping, saves money and they buy only what they need without extra motivations. The only down-fall is you miss […]

25 Foods We Stopped Buying To Strengthen Our Savings Power : The Grocery Game Challenge 2017 #4 Feb 20-26

DON’T LET FOOD CONTROL YOU ESPECIALLY WHEN IT CAN SIGNIFICANTLY IMPACT YOUR GROCERY BUDGET.   You might be asking yourself the same questions everyone else is when it comes to food prices. When is this grocery shopping battle ever going to end? The answer is never because we have no control over price points or the state of the economy. What we do have is the ability to fight back by finding ways to slash our grocery budget with smart shopping choices. Ugh, I know that sounds like fun to some of you. Most often it’s not for the rest. The biggest savings high for us is finding those unadvertised awesome deals or using enough coupons to get a product free or near free. Is that even possible to do with coupons today? Meh, some say yes and others say no. It depends on what you buy, but I can say with certainty that stockpiling and the lucrative deals are far and few these days. You won’t believe how much money you are spending on empty foods that don’t add value to your meal plans or snack box. By adding value I mean, nutrition, cost and taste. Everyone wants to […]

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 […]
