The Grocery University is Back and on Sale for as low as $2.99!

I bet if I took a survey, I would find that the majority of people would answer the same way to the question, “Where do you spend the most each month that isn’t a fixed bill?” It would be in the grocery/eating out line item. Right? I know it can be for us!

Enter The Grocery University that can and will change your spending habits if you let it…

The Grocery University is a comprehensive strategy that is way more than a series of simple “how to” tips.  It has been proven to help even the most seasoned bargain shopper all the way to someone who has never been frugal about shopping before.  The teaching is by a professional instructor who has experience teaching thousands of people through live workshops and online seminars.  I love that this program can work for anyone regardless of your family’s diet or income.

And, I also love that there’s no reading involved.  Don’t get me wrong, I love to read and do so for fun as much as I can.  But, after reading homeschool curriculum all day, it’s nice to be able to listen to instruction while doing other things like making dinner, driving, working out etc.

The Grocery University Course Includes:

  • 139 minutes of audio MP3 files
  • 40-page student workbook (PDF) with more tips, visual aids, and example scenarios
  • BONUS! The Grocery University Rock Bottom Price Database PDF ($10 value on its own!)

The immediate download can be played directly from your computer (PC or Mac) or from an portable MP3 player (e.g. iPhone, iPod, Zune, etc.)

Regularly the Grocery University will be $9.97, but on Tuesday, August 19th only, they are having a huge sale where the earlier you shop, the better your deal!

Favado Helps you Save on Back to School

Are you using Favado yet?

If you’re tired of going broke trying to stock up on back to school supplies Favado can help! Even though my kids do not attend school, I’ve seen the list of items kids are required to bring to school at the beginning of the year.  It’s huge!

favado school categories

If you have to shop, why not get the best deals?! Many stores right now are offering some great deals on school supplies as well as things like hand sanitizer, wipes, paper towels, etc. as well as all kinds of school supplies! One way to find which store has the best deal is to use the Favado app.

Favado is a grocery app that tells you what is on sale at the stores where you already shop. Not only that, you can see sale items for multiple stores at the same time in the app. So you can find the absolute best price on items you already buy. This is perfect for your back to school shopping trip.

Save on School Supplies with the Free App, Favado | The Happy Housewife

Favado also tells you what coupons are available for the on sale items making it even easier to save more money. These sales are curated by savings experts (coupon bloggers) who not only upload all the grocery sale items each week, they also scour the stores for unadvertised deals for even more savings! Right now they are finding some awesome deals on school supplies at grocery and drug stores and adding them to the app!

Favado Free App

My favorite Favado feature is the comparison tool. When I can’t shop at the commissary I shop at the stores closest to me, and being able to see which store has the best prices on the items I need before I go (so I go to the store with the best deals) is a huge win for me!

I know many folks shop at multiple stores, but at this time in my life, I need one store with the most items on sale that I need. Favado helps me find it!

To download Favado, click here. You’ll need to set up an account (takes about 30 seconds) and then you’ll receive a confirmation email. You’ll then be able to download the app and log in and start saving today!
