YP Grocery app will help you save money and time on groceries
I love food â€“ whether Iâ€™m trying out the latest food trend or impulse buying a new product on sale. My weekly grocery bill can get out of control. Iâ€™ve partnered up withÂ YP GroceryÂ to help you take control of your grocery spending.Â YP GroceryÂ is a new smart grocery list app that finds deals from your favourite local grocery stores andÂ pharmacies.
Hereâ€™s our 6 tips to save money on your next grocery bill:
Track your expenses
Keep an inventory of whatâ€™s in your fridge,Â pantry andÂ freezer and track your weekly food expenses. You can analyse how much money you spend on food and theÂ cost per meal.Â This will help you determineÂ your grocery shopping budget.
Start planning and prepping your meals for the week. You can cook a large portion and pre-portion your meals into reusable containers. It will help you save time by only cooking once a week.
Shop with a list
Once you plan your recipes, you can add all your ingredients intoÂ your YP Grocery list. You can organize your shopping list by category, store, or alphabetical order.
You can also share and collaborate on your grocery list with your family or partner.
You donâ€™t need to flip through paper flyers to see which store has the best price. YP Grocery automatically searches for deals from your neighbourhood grocery stores. From your smartphone, you can comparison shop to see which store has best bargains.
The YP Grocery app sources from 500+ flyers from 6000+ stores across Canada.Â Participating retailers include Atlantic Superstore, Buy-Low Foods, Chalo! FreshCo, Colemans, Co-op, Dominion, FreshCo, Longoâ€™s, Nesterâ€™s Market, No Frills,Â Powellâ€™s Supermarket, PriceSmart foods, Real Canadian Superstore, Save-On- Foods, The Grocery People and Zehrs Markets.
You can save more money by using coupons along with store sales. No more clipping coupons. From the app, you can collect and organize your coupons and redeem in store.
