Thrifty Thursday - Taking advantage of Flyer Specials
Today, I want to share with all of you a little gem that I found on the web.
This website can formulate a weekly meal plan for you and send it to your e-mail address, which is fine if you would like the challenge of cooking a never seen before recipe every night, but if you're like me and mostly stick to the basics, that won't be the service you are interested in!
What I love about this website is the "Save Money" tab along the top of the page. From there you can click "This week's specials" and instantly, all of the flyer specials from the major supermarkets in your region will pop up in an organized chart for your planning convenience! No more flipping through page after page, being overwhelmed by all of the items. Make a list of what you need and see if it is advertised this week!
You can choose which categories you want to browse and which grocery store to be included. The chart will tell you where the product is shipped from, price/kg and will highlight the best deal. The list is updated once/week, usually when the fyiers take effect.
You may have to sign up in order for it to work (I can't remember!) Someone let me know if you do!
I hope that you will find this to be a useful resource when planning your grocery list!
For my non-Canadian readers, I apologize...this might only work for us Canadian folks, eh?
