Summer Food Challenge with @flipp #FlippFoodChallenge

In a single-parent, one-income, low-income household it’s smart (and necessary) to be frugal with money.


Even if I didn’t have to be I would still be wise with my money; this often means:
– taking advantage of deals

– using coupons

– limit shopping trips

– using lists

… and nowadays we have access to smart shopping apps like Flipp [] which can give you an amazing weekly shopping experience that can save you both time and money. Ultimately, shopping is made fun once again!

Once you download this free app, you have access to all the digital circulars and coupons that will help you get the most savings. Flipp has some tools that come in quite handy. Flipp’s coupons allow you to save 20-70% on the brands you love. To stay organized, you can clip the items you want while browsing the digital circulars. You can create a shopping list ahead of time and Flipp will find local deals for you … taking out the grunt work for you. Of course, you can search for a specific item, store, or brand, and even use the discount slider so you can find savings at-a-glance. Now, you can even add rewards cards right to their app!

I’ve actually been using Flipp from the very beginning and can honestly say I don’t want to shop without it. Ever.

When I was recently invited to participate in the Flipp Summer Food Challenge, I accepted. It wasn’t going to be a challenge for me; instead, it was going to me my normal weekly shopping trip! Fun!

This is a copy of my clippings:

This is my actual shopping cart (and ultimately the groceries that I took home):

… and our summer meal?  It’s always simple:

… no complicated recipes; just yummy BBQ flavours and a crispy, fresh salad!

It’s simple to use Flipp so if you haven’t tried it yet you really should.
