The Ultimate Canadian Grocery Savings Guide

The Grocery Game Challenge-May 7-13 What’s Your Savings?

As promised for The Grocery Game Challenge I will post the Coupon Match-Ups May 4-May 10 from SaveBigLiveBetter.  We typically sit on a Sunday and go through these match-ups and design our menu plan for the week and savings attack.  I’m thrilled to see so many new players that want to keep track of their grocery budget and savings by committing to posting it here each week along with me.

Last weeks shop consisted of quite a few pink 50% off stickers which we all know Mr.CBB loves… and so do you if you keep an eye out for them at any Loblaw’s stores.  This weeks shop can be up to $82.70 as we had $18.70 left in the grocery budget from last week. Now we don’t have to spend it and sometimes we don’t add it to the following weeks budget. This week it will come in handy as Shopper’s Drug Mart sent us an email Spend $50 and save $10.
