How to save on groceries

Happy Monday everyone! It is especially happy because it is labour day, so it is great to have a day to lounge and relax instead of the usual hustle and bustle of trying to get the garbage out on time and rushing out the door for work.  Instead I had time to workout on the spin bike while watching Suits, have a leisurely breakfast and make a pizza dough (recipe to come soon hopefully). Since I have a bit of free time on my hands, I thought I would tell you about this ap- Flipp.

I found out about it from Stan who was visiting this weekend (with Carolyn). He said he was wondering if there was an ap that could sort through all the flyers and find what you are looking for. He thought it would be a great business idea if it didn't already exist. Well it does, and it is called Flipp. You enter your postal code and it shows you flyers for the stores in your area. What's especially neat about it, is that you can search for an item e.g. raspberries and it tells you which stores in your area have it on sale and what the promotion is. Now it may not be worth it for small items, but for larger purchases such as razors, toilet paper, laundry detergent, etc it can make a significant difference in your grocery bill.

I tried it out for fun by searching for peaches. Well for fun and also because I love peaches and am an addict. I browsed the search results and then purchased them at food basics for less than $3 for fresh Ontario peaches. I'm quite impressed.

 Try it out! Let me know what you think!
