wildflowerz :  I’d also be interested in that kind of app! And I recommend the Ibotta app for rebates on your purchases, if you aren’t already using it. I started using it last year and have earned $63.43 with it. That’s obviously not a fortune, but a nice amount of money to get back on groceries and other purchases.

wildflowerz :  Not an app, but I used to use the website AddictedtoSaving when I was into couponing (now I just shop at Aldi). I’m not sure how regional it is, I think she’s out of FL, but I know there are also other similar websites. They list all the grocery stores and the weekly sales and match them up with available coupons (online or newspaper/mailings) as well as rebates from apps like Ibotta.

I use Flipp! It has all the circulars from pretty much every store near me. I finally always know what’s on sale where!

wildflowerz :  like SithLady I’ve given up on my serious couponing days but one trick I learned was to remember drugstores for certain staples. In my area they almost always had milk and eggs on sale cheaper at Walgreens or Rite Aid than I could get them in the grocery store. 

Now I just shop at Market Basket and buy in season as much as possible.  A “big” shop week is like….$70 there for 2 adults and a baby. Usually it’s closer to $50.

wildflowerz :  how many people are you shopping for and what kind of stuff do you buy? We do a mix of conventional/organic foods. Avoid single serve items, and buy certain things in bulk at Costco. The biggest saver for me is not buying baby food. Half of it is sugary garbage anyways (the organic “baby” yogurt makes me mental – it’s got more sugar in it than plain Greek yogurt!) so she eats real food. My husband also does a lunch program so this budget excludes his lunches – that’s a separate $75/month, but he’s a big eater for lunch so it works out for us.

wildflowerz :  it also varies a lot by location. I’m in Boston and we were talking about pricing differences with our Montreal friends once and we were all shocked at what the other spent! Their housing costs were quite low, but their groceries were at least double ours. Meanwhile Boston housing is expensive, but you can get cheap groceries with minimal effort. I could honestly get it even lower, but certain products I have favorite brands of and won’t switch to the cheaper ones.

Flipp is the app that we use. We spend about $120 a week on groceries for the both of us
