THE MOM'S GUIDE TO SAVING MONEY AND TIME AT THE SUPERMARKET
- Ficha técnica
ABOUT THE BOOK Almost everybody dreams of saving time and money, two of the most precious resources in the modern world. When you become a mother, saving time and money becomes even more important, but it also becomes a little more challenging. Whether you are a fulltime homemaker, a self-employed professionalr who works from home, or a working mother who holds an outside job, making sure your family has three nutritious meals a day (plus snacks and other extras) can take up a surprising amount of money and energy. According to Gary Foreman of The Dollar Stretcher, many families spend up to 20 percent of their total income on food purchases alone. This figure can shift depending on different factors, but if it sounds high to you, then you can definitely benefit from taking greater control of your shopping trips and seeing the figures you really want. Before you had kids, a trip to the supermarket probably involved a quick spin around the store to grab healthy essentials and a few indulgences, based only on your tastes or those of your partner. EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK It's the digital age, and you can take advantage of modern conveniences even during basic tasks such as stocking up on groceries for your hungry family. Check out trusted online vendors such Amazon.com or the websites of well-known retailers to see if you can snag a better deal online than when shopping in person. Finding a good deal online cuts down on the process of driving to the store, locating your item, comparing it with other items available, waiting in line at the cash register, and so on. When you are shopping online, you can accomplish everything you need to do during a few quiet minutes between dinner and bedtime, or before the kids arrive home from school. After you compare deals and place your order, you just have to wait for your purchases to show up on your doorstep.
