Grocery Savings and Meal Planning

 
I can't even count the number of times I've clicked on an article, or picked up a book, promising to teach me all of the secrets I need to cut my grocery bill in half, only to be disappointed. The tips tell me to use coupons to buy processed "foods" and buy discount low-quality factory farmed meats to save big. Ugh. I pretty much stopped looking for grocery savings tips and resigned myself to spend an enormous portion of our income on groceries to eat well.

As I mentioned in my last post about cleaning, fall time, combined with the fact that we're moving has heightened my enthusiasm in the domestic sphere. I've been meaning to revive my existing menu plans to better mesh with our gluten-free and fewer grains style of eating that we've gradually adopted in my family since I orginally made these menu plans last fall.

Only I've been dreading it, because somehow, the act of officially changing our meal plans will make it real that our grocery bill is SO EXPENSIVE.

That is until, I discovered the Grocery Savings Made Simple course, which is all about saving money on groceries while eating real food, including a lot of high quality protein from pasture raised animals. It's an e-course that starts September 2nd, you can find more information about it here, and also get a free download of one of the grocery saving prinables. I've had the chance to talk with the course creator, Shannon, who blogs at Growing Slower and preview some of the course material and I can tell you that I can't wait to learn more about her grocery savings system and implement it in our family. It's all about real strategies that I already use, like buying in bulk and cooking from scratch, but how to get organized with it and do it smarter.

I'm signed up, and if you sign up before August 26th, there is a special pay what you can option. I have to say that I think this is so awesome on Shannon's behalf to recognize that the families who need this information the most will have the hardest time paying. I know that a lot of us blogging mamas out there are trying to help support our families by sharing our creativity and expertise through our blogs, so being paid for our work is important. That makes the reduced rate for this course a really generous move and honestly, I'm impressed.

Time to get it together on grocery savings and have a meal planning revival! Ahhh, I love my autumn organizing and planning spree.

Note: I am receiving a free pass to the e-course in exchange for my honest review and social media promotion of the course. The opinions stated in this post are my own.
