Grocery Budget Makeover
Who needs to save money on groceries? I guess I should rephrase that. Who doesn’t need to save money? I know I definitely do! In fact, I was just thinking about this over the last few weeks.
We have been trying to save, give and overall just be more intentional in how we live as a family. This goes for ALL portions of our life, which, of course, for me includes grocery shopping. Over the past month, I’ve been teaching my kids about money management and smart spending.
When I was given the opportunity to preview a BRAND NEW course in making over your grocery shopping – I jumped at the chance! You guys – this is awesome! If you are like me, this is just what you need to jumpstart your grocery “savings”.
I love what Erin Chase, the brains behind Grocery Budget Makeover, writes.
“I set out to cut our family grocery bill and was able to reduce it by half, from $500 to $250 (for our then family of 4). The combination of strategies and tactics that I utilized completely changed the way I shop forever. There’s a lot to the grocery planning process and routine and when you have all the pieces working well together, you will start to see significant savings.
The one and only place that I have all the pieces to the puzzle pulled into one place is here, in the Grocery Budget Makeover.
While I’ve shared many, many, many budget friendly recipes on $5 Dinners for almost 7 years, I’ve never actually pulled together all of my shopping, meal planning, couponing and cooking strategies into one place. That’s what the Grocery Budget Makeover is all about…it’s all my secrets and tactics, put together in a way that’s easy to digest (pun intended!) and guides you on a journey to spending way less money on groceries than you are now.”
I felt like, while watching the videos, that I was listening to my best friend / budgeting guru share with me, motivate me, and keep it real all at the same time. I think this is just what I need – and maybe you do, too.
This amazing grocery spending overhaul and makeover exists because I want you to stop overspending on groceries. I want you to stop wasting money. I want you to be forever changed, in both your grocery spending mentality and your grocery shopping strategy.
What if I asked you about your meal plan? Or how you actually work your way through the grocery store? Is life so chaotic that you just skip the entire shopping list all together?
There are many moving parts to the grocery shopping and planning process or ‘experience’ and in this makeover, you and I are going to dig deep and get real and make changes to your habits that will help you save a ton of money on your weekly shopping trips.
What exactly is the Grocery Budget Makeover?
The Grocery Budget Makeover is a 10-week course that will change the way you shop for groceries…forever. Erin will lead you on a journey into the depths of your mind, your heart and yes, the grocery store too. Sounds dramatic, because it is. Any and every makeover you experience is dramatic, and this one will be too.
Each week, she’ll email you with videos to watch, worksheets, free resources to use that week, plus fun tips and tricks and of course, a weekly challenge.
Oh, and she’ll throw in some cooking demos and other fun surprises too!
How will it help me?
This program is designed to reshape and reframe the way that you think about shopping for groceries, and how you actually shop for groceries. The strategies that you will learn and implement will make a huge impact on how much you are spending on groceries each week.
Does it have a cost?
The cost for the Grocery Budget Makeover is $49 total. Or $20 a month, or about $5 a week.
It’s a very small investment, considering that Erin will help you shave $49 off your grocery bill in the first month!
When can I register?
Registration will only be open for one week in September – Today (September 8th) through 15th. At midnight EST on September 15th, registration will be closed for this group.
Dates for this round of the program: September 16th through November 18th. (You can move at your own pace, but this is the time frame when the content will be released.)
How long will this take me each week? Will I have to work?
Yes, you will have a little work to do each week. There’s a reason she spread this out over a 10-week period. The work will be kept to a minimum each week, while still allowing you to digest the material and allow it to build on itself as we move through the program.
Each week will contain a 5-15 minute long video, along with some worksheets to work through, and other printable resources to browse and potentially put to use.
This should take no more than 30 minutes per week.
Will I be able to go back and review a video or printable at anytime or is it only for the time I’m actively in the program?
You will have access to the program and materials forever! You can move at your own pace, as I know that life happens.
Also, if new videos are added in future groups (the one starting in January 2016), then former makeover-ees will have access to those videos and worksheets too!
My family eats fairly healthy and avoids processed foods. Is your program designed to help shoppers like me?
That’s how I shop as well. Due to food allergies in the family, I avoid most processed foods too. I also use coupons for certain products and will show you where you can find coupons for these types of products, as well as organic products and more.
This makeover is more about changing your mindset and methods of shopping. If you even think that this might be for you, consider registering!
In the end, I want to change the way you shop for groceries, so that you can spend less money in the store and less time in the planning and prep process. -Erin Chase
