Freebs Grocery Shopping Field Trip! [UTAH]

Grocery shopping with

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 shoppingsans 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 [email protected] and she'll take care of you.

      Yes I hope to! If all goes well…and if the store doesn’t kick me out, haha! I will have to see if I can eventually film it, but grocery stores tend to get pretty fussy about having cameras in for liability reasons. We’ll see how this one goes and yes, I hope to do more soon, and film it so you can see it without being here!

    The class was full by the time I got the e-mail. So sad! I’m local so I’ll definitely be watching for more of these. I need to learn to “shop like Jordan.” 🙂
