grocery game monthly challenge

4 Simple Ways To Cash In On Weekly Specials To Stretch Your Budget : The Grocery Game Challenge 2018 #5 Jan 29-Feb 4

THERE ARE WAYS YOU CAN GET WHAT YOU WANT AT THE GROCERY STORE EVEN ON A TIGHT BUDGET   Weekly specials listed in your grocery store flyers are the number one way the shop gets consumers through the door to spend money. Once you’re inside be prepared for all sorts of well thought-out distractions that could cost you more money than you anticipated on spending. I’ve run the grocery game challenge for 6 years now and price has and always will be the biggest concern for shoppers followed by quality, quantity and ingredients. From there shoppers might care about the layout of the shop, customer service, types of products, services and so on. Although having a store that does it all in Canada sounds like a dream come true each grocery store offers unique services and savings for their customers. Some of our favourite grocery stores in Canada to shop at are Food Basics for the low prices, Zehrs for reduced prices and PC Optimum points and  finally No Frills for price-matching and PC Optimum Points.

Herbed sliced baked potatoes

CRISPY POTATOES FULL OF FLAVOUR   I love potatoes and if you’ve tried my twice-baked potatoes loaded with delicious flavours you must try these herbed sliced baked potatoes. These sliced baked potatoes make the perfect vegetarian or meatless side-dish to any meal. In the Don household I have been busy getting the kids back to school stuff sorted and ready for my family. I know it’s early but this is when all the great sales are on and I can bulk buy for the next year or so. Yes, I said year! Who wants to miss out on getting books and crayons for 25c and 10c a pack? We are also busy painting the deck which we have put off for the last year. We finally decided that if it’s not done now we will need to replace the deck at a much heftier cost to our budget. After looking around we decided on one from Home Depot which was on sale and had a rebate on it. Bonus!   Herbed sliced baked potatoes   The best part of the herbed sliced baked potatoes is the time it takes to prepare them. Being a mom I don’t always have lots […]

Mr.CBB’s Sausage Potato Cabbage Tomato Stew

This isn’t your ordinary cabbage stew, this is the Mr. CBB’s jazzed up version. Although I used pork sausages in this recipe (that’s what we had on hand) we normally like to use a lean turkey sausage. There are many meals on a budget that you can create that are healthy and not compromising taste, just ask my friend Bonnie who is on a journey to lose 100lbs. Bonnie creates simple healthy meals and is getting fit on a budget. This stew is an easy frugal meal to make that is also perfect for the budget conscious college students. It’s a stew that eats like a meal especially when you crave that homemade comfort food and want to try something new in the kitchen. You can make a big pot of this Sausage Potato Cabbage Tomato Stew and store the leftovers for a busy day when you don’t have time to cook. Who doesn’t like quick left over meals or meals you can freeze, but don’t forget to keep a freezer inventory list so you know what you have on hand. The great thing about making a stew or pot of soup is the ways you can change it up. If you […]
