My wife and I have never been big couponers. Is that even a word? No matter. I certainly don’t have the patience to try and match what we are buying to coupons and then figure out what we could make based on those choices. I know there are volumes of sites devoted to that exact art, Coupon Mom comes to mind. But a reader sent in his new venture which is a site called FlyerSide that takes most of the work out of getting the best deals. Enter your zip code and you’ll see a list of stores in your area. I was very surprised to see the 3 biggest in my area show up. They are also accepting nominations for new stores and seem to be quick about getting them online. There is presented a list of some of the best deals and some even cooler options for recipe integration.
How Does it Work?
You can search and find different foods and the sale price at your local store. But the bar none the coolest feature is a section called A recipe for Savings where recipe’s supplied by AllRecipes are listed with ingredients and the amount you’ll save. For my case a recipe showed up for Baked Cheesy Veggie Chicken Pasta which would save me $8.17 (41%) off the normal price. Recipe components that are on sale are hyperlinked. Merely click on the item (say 3 1/2 ounces blue cheese, crumbled) and you’ll get the deal below the recipe that you can then add to your Grocery List. It’s helping me in two areas. One we frequently can’t figure out what to have for dinner and two saving me some money at the same time. Best of all it’s totally free.
This is a great tool to add to your arsenal and I’m sure Joe would love to hear your feedback at his contact page.
