12 Practical Ways To Afford Expensive Food For Less : The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #4 Sept 26-Oct 3

The most expensive meal you will ever eat is the one you can’t afford.   When you crave the most expensive steak but your budget can’t afford it there are ways to get what you want but the key is, patience. Luxury food differs from person to person depending on their grocery budget but it is possible to splurge without paying the price. Most frugal consumers read the flyers and create their grocery list based on that alone. If you really want something that you just can’t afford it’s important to be mindful when you grocery shop. By that I mean scanning for prices. You may not be able to buy it at that moment but eventually you’ll get what you want. We get a bit happy in the grocery store if we find 50% off packages of bacon or other expensive food that we would never buy full-price unless we had to. Even then we may never buy some of the more expensive food on sale because it’s not practical for our family. Over the years we’ve experienced just about every way possible to purchase expensive food that we wouldn’t typically try for less. You may buy a fattier […]

The Best Canadian Grocery Stores To Shop At : The Grocery Game Challenge 2016 #2 Mar 14-20

THE TOP GROCERY STORES IN CANADA ARE IN YOUR NEIGHBOURHOOD   There are so many Canadian Grocery Stores that it can get a bit confusing trying to figure out where to shop to get quality products while saving money to stretch those grocery dollars.

Related: Are you a grocery store snob? When I first moved to Canada 8 years ago I had no idea about Canadian Grocery Stores let alone where to begin shopping. Grocery store prices differ from shop to shop and with that comes differences in product quality and availability. Depending on where you live in Canada you may be blessed with local markets like the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto or St. Jacobs Farmers Market in St. Jacobs. Just about every nationality has a market/shop that sells products from the homeland especially in Toronto which is great to buy hard to find products for new recipes.

Click and Collect Online Grocery Shopping Is Here : The Grocery Game Challenge #3 Oct 19-25, 2015

GROCERY SHOPPING HAS GOTTEN EASIER!   Have you ever dreamed of having a personal shopper? Don’t we all. Well dream no more if you live in Edmonton, Alberta because Loblaws launched Click and Collect Online Grocery Shopping in some of their Real Canadian Super-Stores (RCSS). To be honest it almost sounds like a drive-thru grocery shopping opportunity. I did a bit of research because I wanted to learn about this new click and collect online grocery shopping in Canada. At Tesco UK, they have done home deliveries ever since I can remember but now they do click and collect so it’s not a new concept. You might even remember your grandparents or great-grandparents tell you that they worked for a grocery store delivering groceries. Do you remember the milk man? Fresh milk brought right to your door. These times are all coming back but with a twist, technology. With the snow on the way the click and collect online grocery shopping service could be a VERY popular service for Loblaws and make them a fortune. They are not targeting all those people who would rather not shop, those who can’t shop or those who don’t have the time to shop. […]
