Last Thursday I had the absolute pleasure of having three lovely ladies in my home. We talked about the power of meal planning and preparing before you go to the store and about how price-matching or ad-matching can cut your grocery bill by 30-50%.
The first time out grocery shopping a new way and using price-matching can be a little overwhelming. I know this because I was there once.
I offered to accompany my friend Madison on her first price matching trip.
I had a blast and she totally scored for her first trip and now she has the confidence to do it herself and continue on with the savings.
Here is a little breakdown of her trip.
3 bags Malt O Meal cereal
1 box Life cereal
2 lbs ground beef
one loaf of bread
2 dozen eggs
2 gallons of milk
2 boxes pasta
2 lbs apples
All of that would have cost her 72.90.
However with a little prep she was able to walk away only spending
49.02!That is 33% savings without clipping a single coupon!
Way to go Madison!!!!!!!
