I know we all have New Year’s Resolutions we’re still working on. I’m betting that many of us have very similar resolutions as well. Two of mine being to shop smarter and healthier for my family. Shopping smarter is something my husband has BEGGED me to work on. I’ve been introduced to a new app called Flipp that has made this possible. And my husband a WHOLE lot happier.
How to Eat Healthy and Save Money
My husband and I meal plan every Sunday night. Which you would think makes grocery shopping easier. But for some reason, I always forget something. And I only go to one store for all my needs, instead of looking for the best deals. Enter Flipp app. It has a photo list that finds local deals from my shopping list. I mean, is that not the greatest invention ever? It has made shopping SO much easier and cheaper! For example: I saved $48.06 last week grocery shopping.
Another feature that I truly enjoy is the family sync. If I need my husband or my mom to pick something up on their way home, I can just send it to them via the app. There’s also a Store Mode- which allows you to plan your route in-store. So not only is Flipp making my grocery bill less, it’s also cutting down on my time spent shopping.
As for my healthy food resolution, I wanted to share my grocery store guidelines for finding the healthiest food options for you and your family:
- Only shop the outer aisles. This includes fruits, proteins, meats, and the pasta/cereal aisle. Stay away from those dangerous candy aisles and the freezer section of delicious yet calorie packed desserts and pizzas.
- When picking up carbohydrates for the family, get complex carbs. These include: brown rice, quinoa, multigrain bread, ezekiel bread, quinoa pasta, and sweet potatoes.
- If you prefer to shop organic and all-natural like I do, every grocery store goes by similar setups. The organic and all-natural choices will either be in their own section of the store (like Kroger) or will be placed in the center of each aisle with a green or brown sign (like Publix). Keep an eye out for these!
After using my guidelines and shopping with Flipp- how much money have you saved?
