Tips to Plan Your Weekly Shopping Trip!

How many of you do a weekly shopping trip? I would say most of us do some sort of weekly shopping trip to the grocery store. If not weekly, then bi-weekly or monthly. 

Shopping at Food Basics, helps me save money. Especially when I scope out and find great deals and there are various ways I do this. I wanted to share a few tips for making your weekly shopping trip successful.

  • Know the place you’re shopping at – Don’t just shop at random stores each week. Get to know the store you’re shopping at. The more you know, the more you can save. When I shop at a store that I know nothing about, I feel like a fish out of water. Get to know your store and you will be much more successful with your weekly shopping.
  • Make a list of what you’re shopping for – A lot of times, you can go right to the website and look at the weekly deals or access their e-flyer. This helps plan your weekly shopping trip. I can find the best deals and even look for coupons. Some grocery stores are even coming up with apps to make this even easier! More on that below.
  • Shop at Food Basics – One of my favourite places to shop is at Food Basics. In fact, it’s where we do our weekly shopping. When I save money on grocery shopping, I truly feel like I can have it all. Read on to find out why Food Basics is my preferred store to shop at!

Raise your hand if you love shopping at Food Basics! It’s one of my go-to places to shop. I love it just the way it is, but the amazing people at Food Basics are making things even more awesome. FoodBasics.ca. is going through a fresh new design that’s going to knock your socks off.

Not only have they done a redesign, but they have also done something else that I think you’re going to love. Here is the down low on how Food Basics is changing and how it will make your life that much more awesome AND easier.

Check out the Food Basics Mobile App

This is one of my favourite ways that Food Basics is changing. An app makes everyone’s life easier. This app will be available on Android and the iPhone. There is a handy dandy store locater, so you can find a store near you a lot easier. You will also have access to grocery flyers and coupons to use in store.

Clipping coupons has never been so easy!

All you have to do is press the little scissor icon and it automatically adds it to a folder for your clipped coupons. Being able to browse the flyers by a touch of a button is so helpful too. Having the flyer accessible can help you formulate your shopping list or refine it. Flipping through the flyers is more like swiping across and if you see an item you like, you just click on it and you get all the deets. Like what it is, how many come with it and the price of course. Plus, you find out what is on sale!

Make sure to download the app to make your shopping trip so much easier. You can get it in the Apple Store and Google Play.

Website Redesign

Food Basics has also redesigned their website, which is great. I like the crisp and clean look of their new site. I love that you can subscribe to their e-flyer. You can do all sorts of stuff on their new website. You can have easy access via your phone, tablet, or computer. I can say that it is easy to navigate through everything.

Food Basics is on Facebook

How many of you are already on Facebook? I bet you like it when your favourite companies are also on Facebook, I know I do. Food Basics has joined Facebook and this is where they will post upcoming contests and so much more. I also love that you can get in touch with a rep if you need it.
