If you know me, you know I strongly dislike grocery shopping. I’m not a foodie, a horrible cook, I don’t particularly find joy at the grocery store, and frankly, I’d rather spend money on clothes than food.
If you know me you know I’m a MAJOR advocate for meal planning, cooking at home, and grocery shopping – sans coupons – and not maying full-price for anything (and budgeting reasonably for food as well). I believe in having a full fridge and freezer, and believe you CAN feed your family well (really well, in fact) for just $100 per person in your family, per month.
I posted a recent grocery shopping haul on Instagram and Freebs came from the woodworks pounding down my social media door, asking for a grocery shopping field trip! I haven’t had a good shopping trip since getting back from Europe because I almost immediately left again for LA (don’t worry, huge Europe post series coming soon). Needless to say, my fridge is SCREAMING for a good shopping trip!
All that rambling is for a reason because, well,
You ask, I deliver.
Let’s go on a grocery shopping field trip!
This Monday (March 30th) come shop with me at the Draper Walmart Neighborhood Market from 7:30pm to 9:00pm. During this trip I will teach you to meal plan, price match, shop sales, find good deals, and learn the art of affordable stockpiling (again, without needing coupons).
This will be a real shopping trip for me so you will see all my tips first-hand. You can observe, or shop right along with me! Excited? REGISTER HERE!
Here’s the catch…
I have tried to do this once before. I had several verbal commitments, but in the end no one came because, well, life happens! (which is totally understandable). But, I have 4 young kids and a busy life (as we all do!) and every minute counts. So, I hate to do this, but
pre-registration and a small fee are required in order to attend.
This is not so as to make it a money-making thing, ultimately just to help make sure we’re all committed and ready to party! The good news?
It is only $5.oo!
You will save more than that in lettuce, I promise. But since I’m a Freeb through and through, I’ll refund your $5 if you get a friend to register and come with you! Once your friend registers just email firstname.lastname@example.org and she’ll take care of you.
I’m keeping this outing small, so we have very limited space. Register on Eventbrite (or click the button below). Once registered you will receive an email with specific meeting and prep instructions (so be sure to use your best email address when registering!).
I’m super excited to get to know you, and become your new BFF! Spread the word and register fast before all the spots are filled.
See you Monday!
