5 Ways to Save Money on Groceries and Shop Less During the Quarantine + Today’s Fox 40 News Segment!


Ok- who is trying their best to stay home during this quarantine but keeps running out of something and needs to go to the store?? In my efforts to find toilet paper I have forgot Half & Half, Coffee Filters and a couple other things.  Here is a list of ways to eliminate multiple shopping trips throughout the week that will keep you out of the stores AND help you save money!

 

  1.  Menu Planning
    I know it may be a hard concept for some, but if you can take the time right now to think out the next week of meals and snack, you can go to the store ONCE and be done.  START WITH WHAT YOU HAVE ALREADY- and build from there – you may just need 1 or 2 items to throw a meal together and not have to buy as much. You may like going to Costco but then you may still need to go to other stores for the fill-in items. If you can get everything you need at ONE store, that is even better  Smart & Final has the large items like Costco but also regular grocery items as well. I have been able to get my whole list there before. Grocery Outlet has worked well, and also Walmart and Target- but I have had to deal with larger crowds.
    Here is a basic printable for a menu and shopping list– if you google “free menu plan shopping list”, there are so many to choose from so you can find one that works for you.
  2. Make a List 
    If you are heading into the stores, MAKE A LIST. Once you have made a menu, make a list. Don;t forget to put things like foil, oil, butter, half & half or any staples you need to make everything. If you are shopping at a store that sells your household and beauty items then add those too. Don’t panic if your totals end up being higher at the store when you do this- You are shopping long term, and this will still be less than the multiple trips you take- those add up, especially when you impulse buy or are hungry when you shop.
    Tip: Once you make a menu and list- take a picture of it, that way if you go to the store and forget it-you have it on your phone= I learned this the hard way!!
  3. Utilize Pick Up and Delivery Services
    Instacart has the options of almost all grocery stores and you can choose what you want from where. Is there a fee-YES, but you are not using your time and gas, and you won’t be in the stores with other people. Some grocery stores have their own pick-up and delivery services as well. In the past you may not have wanted the fees, but now it may be worth it because you are quarantined at home. If stores have a pick-up option you will be able to just drive up and have them load your car for you also.
  4. Utilize App Coupons and Cash Back Apps
    Before you shop, if your store has an app- load the coupons to your card. If you use Cash Back apps like Ibotta, Checkout 51 or Fetch, check through those and see if what you like you can save or get cash back on them. A quick scan through the coupons or a quick picture of your receipt can get you great savings with minimal effort. For the apps I use all the time and how to Get and use them GO HERE
  5. Stick to Your Budget 
    If you decide what you have to spend BEFORE you go shopping you will be less likely to buy unnecessary items. If you order your groceries online you will be able to see your total and know if you need to take out or are able to add anything else.

I used to hear from people that they just don’t have the time to do some of these things, but if you do take the time now while you have it- it gets EASIER. Then when this quarantine is all over you will have developed some money saving habits that will last!!!

If you have ANY questions or need someone to walk you through menu planning, budgeting, online grocery ordering just email me Diana@pantryoverflow.com I would love to help you!!

March is Frozen Food Month- Great Deal at Smart & Final-$10 Back When You Spend $40!!

 

 

March is FROZEN FOOD MONTH!!! 

For my family it is one of the busiest months of the year so it is perfect timing!!

I made sure my freezer was thinned out-and boy am I glad I did!

Smart & Final has a deal running ALL MONTH LONG-spend $40 on participating frozen food items and get $10 off your next grocery purchase (which I used on NON frozen items!!!!)

I brought my kids with me because I have learned that if they aren’t going to eat it, it doesn’t matter what kind of deal I got! Also, I want to make sure they will make it when I am busy this month so I am not worried if they are eating or not!

Some items are our staples from Smart & Final- their First Street fried rice (they have Vegetable and Chicken) are our FAVORITE! We also get their Orange Chicken and Teriyaki often because it is so good!So of course I made sure I grabbed $40 worth of JUST this so that we wouldn’t be tempted to run to Panda Express on busy sports nights!!!Make sure you look for the “Participating Items” labels- not ALL frozen food counts- but most of it does.

 

 

Now my freezer is nice and full and my kids are so happy!

Here they are choosing their items -and I picked a couple things too!

Don’t forget to go to SmartandFinal.com and sign up for their email coupons! I got a 12 Pack of Maruchuan Noodles for $.01 with a $25 Purchase!!! One of my kids was more excited about that than the frozen food!

Simple Valentine Budget Ideas For the Family!!! Studio 40 Live Segment Details!


Hello Studio 40 Live Viewers!!!! Here is all the info on everything I shared on today’s segment!! I am so excited for Valentine’s Day and I have come up with some very simple budget-friendly ideas for you!

Here is what I bought at Smart & Final
Doritos 50 ct. $13.99  ($.28 each)

First Street Microwave Popcorn 24ct. $6.99 ($.29 each)

 

 

 

I used the Doritos bags- but any bags of chips will work for this. 

I printed these simple printables 
that say  You are all that and a bag of chips! 
I just taped them on – can easily be done by kids too!

Then I printed these printables for the microwave popcorn that say
You Make My Heart Pop!

 

 

 

This is a very simple snack for watching a family movie or a Valentine Party snack for the kids!
1 Box/Bag Teddy Grahams
1 Bag of Mini Marshmallows
1 Bag of Valentine Colored M&Ms

 

 

 

This is just so cute and a big hit in my house.

I always use the First Street Double Strength Red Food Coloring.
Just make one big bowl of mix and cook a few plain waffles (or pancakes) then add a little food coloring to make the batter pink and make some more-then add enough to make the batter red and then make the rest. It looks so pretty on a tray or individual plate. 

I got the Dash Mini Heart Waffle Maker at Target for $9.99

This is just a MUST for ANY holiday or a weekend or weekday quick dessert

Cake Mix Cookies

1 Cake Mix ( I used Strawberry)
2 Eggs
1/2 Cup Oil

Mix and drop as cookies on a baking sheet. 
Add chocolate or white chips if desired
Bake at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. They will not seem like they are done, but they are. Let cool and they will be the most moist cookies ever!!
