Save Hundreds Per Week at Grocery Budget Makeover

Grocery Makeover

Do you struggle to keep your grocery spending in check? Do you wish you could cut back your food spending and save hundreds per week?

Keeping grocery costs down can be tough. I used to waste so much money on grocery shopping. I tried everything, even extreme couponing, but it never worked. Then, I discovered the secret to saving money on groceries. 

Save Hundreds a Week on Groceries

Everything changed when I discovered The Grocery Budget Makeover. It’s an online class that completely changes the way you approach grocery shopping. The class was fantastic. Not only did it change the way I managed my grocery shopping experience, but it cut our grocery bill in half. 

The class is $49, but I made up for that quickly by reducing my grocery spending by hundreds of dollars each week. There are also payment plans available.

I’m always on the lookout for ways to help you with your money situation. I know this class will make a huge difference in your life. 

What You Get With the Class

This class is very thorough. The classic edition has 10 video lessons, 10 lesson worksheets, and access to a Facebook support group. The extreme edition includes all of that plus 3 Accountability & Group Coaching Calls with Erin, Bonus Video & Worksheet: Store Hopping, and Bonus Video & Worksheet: Deep Dive Couponing. It’s worth it! you will never shop the same again.

How to Register

The Grocery Budget Makeover is taught by Erin Chase.  First, you can take her free introductory workshop here.  Registration for the actual class is only open for a week starting September 6th. If you click over to her site right now and register for her waiting list, then you will be the first to get in when it’s time. If you are reading this post between Sept. 6th to Sept. 11th then you can register here, but if you go before or after those dates then the link won’t work. Be sure to sign up for the waiting list until the link goes live.

It’s worth every penny, plus she has a payment plan if you need it. I’m so grateful that I took her class and cut my grocery bill in half!

Are You Overspending on School Supplies?

6 Essentials That Are Surprisingly Cheaper On Amazon

Did you know the average K12 parent spend $100 on school supplies? That’s not counting new school clothes and backpacks… That’s just the basics like pens and paper! So how can you make sure you don’t overspend on supplies this school year? I’ve researched and compared prices for many basic essentials and have compiled a list of which items are cheaper on Amazon.

Now, keep in mind, some items actually are not cheaper on Amazon, such as erasers and crayons. But there are still many items which you can save some money on by getting them online. Here they are:

Spiral-Bound Notebook

Walmart: $5.57
Target: $2.99
Amazon: $1.76 (for a 6-pack)


Or, you can get notebooks for just $1.25 each if you buy this nifty 4-pack.

A notebook is something all your kids will need at some point, which is why I recommend getting a 4-pack or 6-pack to save money in the long run.

1″ 3-ring binder

Walmart: $7.49
Target: $10.99
Amazon: $5.06

3″ Zipper Binder

Walmart: $14.42
Target: $16.99
Amazon: $13.89

 

Pencils

Walmart: $2.89 for 1 dozen ($0.24/pencil)
Target: $2.57 for 1 dozen ($0.21/pencil)
Amazon: $9.98 for 144 ($0.07 per pencil)

Or you can get a 96-pack for $7.99, which is about $0.08 per pencil:

Ball-Point Pens

Walmart: $5.23 for 36 pens ($0.14/pen)
Target: $4.34 for 12 pens ($0.36/pen)
Amazon: $3.79 for 36 pens ($0.11/pen)

Glue Sticks

Walmart: $1.97 for 4-pack ($0.49/gluestick)
Target: $0.99 for 2-pack ($0.49/gluestick)
Amazon: $8.39 for 30-pack ($0.28/gluestick)

This same 30-pack is available for almost $1 more at Target and Walmart.

Markers

Walmart: $10.76 for 12-pack
Target: $6.99 for 12-pack
Amazon: $5.40 for 50-pack!

Those are just some basics, but there are many other cheap school supply products on Amazon. You can shop them all by grade here.

You can also find other cheap back-to-school items on Amazon like Back to School Clothes and cute, affordable lunchboxes.  Here are some examples of some fun back-to-school stuff I found:
