Did you know that for most families, groceries are the third largest expense? Wow – that’s a big one fore sure! I don’t think anyone likes going to the grocery store only to leave feeling like they overspent, but how often is this the case? I remember that feeling well from years ago and it isn’t a pleasant one.
As a grocery savings expert, I know just how possible it is to cut down a grocery budget by 30%, 40%, 50% or even more. I’ve taught classes on just how to do this during the past six years and have had the pleasure of getting to follow many of your savings stories in the process.
For those of you that are new around here, I want to introduce you to my favorite grocery savings app. It’s called Favado and it’s pretty amazing!
What is Favado?
Favado is a mobile savings app that can help you to save money and not overspend on everyday items by notifying you when your favorite grocery and drugstore items are on sale. Favado uses a combination of industry data and hand selected sales and coupons every week — in more than 65,000 grocery and drugstores nationwide — to enable discovery of the best deals for savings up to 70% on everyday items. Woohooo!
This is an app that I use ALL THE TIME! I use it while I’m preparing to go to the grocery store and while I’m in the store and want to check if I’m getting the best price possible.
Recently I even shared with you that it is now possible to build a grocery list right here on Bargain Blessings using our free coupon match-ups and have that list either emailed to you or sent to the Favado app in your phone! How neat is that?! Talk about a time saver!
