Save on Groceries – Plus a Chance to Win a $50 Visa Gift Card

Resolve_Groceries

It is the new year and I know you all want to save money! One easy way to do this is with Favado. This is my favorite money saving app. It makes saving at the grocery store so easy since most of the work is done for you. Another great thing about the app is that it is FREE!

You can find out all the deals at your local grocery stores and drug stores. Plus it will even tell you if there is a coupon that makes the deals even better.

Be sure to register and download Favado today! 

Personalized just for you, the Favado money-saving app will help you keep your resolution to save on groceries this year with step-by-step weekly goals from the best money-saving brains in the business. It’s the solution to keeping your 2014 resolution! Check out the themes for each week:

I also am hosting video chats around each theme so you can learn even more! We will be answering the questions you ask on this post during the live chats!!!

Week #1 (Jan 7-14) — Smarter Grocery Shopping Habits 

The first week, we’ll be talking mostly about the little habits you can change while shopping that can make a big difference in your grocery spending…such as not buying the magazines off the rack at the checkout, writing a grocery list and sticking to it while shopping, as well as checking unit prices and sale expiration dates.

Favado Helps by…allowing you to have a shopping list in the palm of your hand that you won’t forget at home!

Here is a link to the week one video.  Learn how you can save!

Week #2 (Jan 15-21) — Shopping the Sales and Following the Sales Cycles

Grocery stores and manufacturers work hard to push out their best sale prices to you on a weekly basis through their store circulars. If you follow along closely, you’ll notice that most products operate on an 8-12 week sales cycle.

You’ll also find that “product families” all go on sale at the same time, for example all the P&G products will be discounted the same weeks, and will return to their regular prices for a few weeks, then go back on sale together.

Favado Helps by…showing you when your favorite products go on sale, so that you can purchase them when they are on sale and not have to pay full price in between sales cycles. Over time, you’ll learn how much to purchase to last you until the next sale.

Join us for upcoming chats or watch the video at the Bargain Shopper Mom Youtube page

Week #3 (Jan 22-28) — Couponing for “Double the Discount” 

The deep 50-70% savings that you hear talked about frequently occur when you combine a coupon with an already discounted product for “double the discount.” For example if toothpaste is on sale for $1 and you have a $.75 off coupon, you’ll get that toothpaste for just $.25, as opposed to its $2.49 regular price.

Favado Helps by…doing all the hard work for you and putting the best sale prices with matching available coupons in a nice, organized list. Favado makes it easy to find these discounts and save big on groceries.

Join us for upcoming chats or watch the video at the Bargain Shopper Mom Youtube page

Week #4 (Jan 29-Feb 5) — Meal Planning

Making a meal plan based on what’s on sale in your local grocery stores can help you cut your grocery bill by 20-30% alone. Matching your meals with the sales is a simple, scissorless way to save each week at the grocery store.

Join us for upcoming chats or watch the video at the Bargain Shopper Mom Youtube page

Favado Helps by…allowing you to search for ingredients that are on sale for the meals you want to make each week. Want to make a slow cooker meal that calls for boneless skinless chicken thighs or beef roast? Favado can tell you which store has those ingredients on sale each week.

 

 Twitter_Party_Badge_Savings_2

To add to the fun, join in the Favado Twitter parties!  You can RSVP for tonight’s party here! We’d love for you to join in the fun.  There will be $300 in grocery store gift cards to give away each week!  Each Twitter party will match the theme for the week, as outlined above.

Reader Giveaway:  One lucky Bargain Shopper Mom reader will win a $50 VISA Gift Card courtesy of Favado.  To enter, just complete the entry form below by 11:59pm ET on 1/20/14.  Good luck!

Silhouette Cameo Machine Giveaway Worth $299 #Giveaway

Floating Ornament Made with a Silhouette Cameo

****Congrats to Lanicsha W. , Our Cameo Winner****

It’s no secret that my favorite crafting toy is my Silhouette Cameo electronic cutting machine. With some inspiration from Pinterest, I decided to make this really pretty,  floating glass ornament. I bought some plain, glass ornaments from Hobby Lobby. I used my Cameo to cut a piece of one of those clear transparency sheets from the office supply store. It has a notch at the top to hold it into place. I cut Santa’s Sleigh out of black vinyl and applied it to my transparency insert. I rolled up my transparency and tucked it inside my ornament, and then added some fun snowflakes from the craft store. To give you an idea of how detailed the Cameo can cut, the vinyl is only 3/4 of an inch tall!

Silhouette Specialty Media Promotion

 

My daughter loves American Girl, so I tried out the Silhouette Printable Silver Foil to create a Treats Shoppe for her dolls. I found these cute little glass containers at Hobby Lobby. They were 50% off this week, making them just around $1-$1.50 each.  I used some beads and small candies that I had here at home to make doll candy to go inside the jars. I print and cut the silver foil labels with my Silhouette Cameo. Note that the silver foil paper needs a few minutes for the ink  to dry after taking it out of the printer, before doing your print and cut in the Silhouette. I also noticed that darker colors work better on the silver foil paper.

 

Use Coupon Code BARGAIN to receive the 30% off all Specialty Media Products or shop for Silhouette Machine Bundles with $110 worth of freebies
