A New Way to Save When Grocery Shopping

Grocery Store

in Coupon,Frugality

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.

Wow, there are services availble that we haven’t even thought of!

My wife is a coupon clipper and saves up to 10% on our grocery bill by doing it. It doesn’t take too much time, but I’m going to let her know about this.

Does it offer any specials at grocery warehouses like Sam’s or Costco???

Not currently but they are responsive to additions. I think the focus is more on traditional grocery stores with sale items rather than locations with standard pricing.

Very interesting….. it will be great once it expands and covers all areas!! I’m with you, I’m not a coupon clipper either – although I do comparison shop and I can remember the basic prices for the foods I buy, so I notice right away if I find it cheaper somewhere. Good point you bring up about most of us probably only using 2-3 grocery stores anyway.

Hey, I like this….it will help with budgeting and meal planning and those are a couple of the most important things for me to manage, along with waste, to stay within my self designed boundaries financially.

I love shopping,especial online shopping. Almost all of goods I need are bought online. Just like other coupon hunters, I like to visit those sites providing coupon codes & deals. Some sites I like are RetailMeNot, Savings, CouponSnapshot or some others. I think it’s wonderful for couples to search coupons together. As they can enjoy the process of shopping and saving.
