Top Tip Tuesday: Save Money with Zip List

Saving money at the grocery store does have to be a chore. Try using ZipList to make lists and check for deals at local stores.

To save money at the grocery store, I make sure I'm prepared. Menu prepped. List in hand. Or rather, in phone. And on computer. If I actually stick to it, it saves me from impulse buying. Having a took, keeps me on track.

Zip List simplifies my list making, recipe filing, and even lets me know which stores in my area are having specials on the items I need.

For free.

Zip List also boasts:

  • An online site which syncs with a smart phone.
  • A recipe clipper to save recipes from the web into a personal ZipList recipe file.
  • The ability to scan items and add them to a certain list.

There are certain grocery items that I only purchase at Aldi's. Thus, I have a list solely for Aldi's.

I use Fresh 20 as my meal planner, so when I build a shopping list for the week, I simply call it by date of my Fresh 20 meal plan.

I am currently doing a workout program called Les Mills Combat, which comes with a nutrition plan, so I built a list specifically for Combat.

I can then keep all these lists and refer back to them later.

And I can share or email these lists to another user.

My husband.

ZipList is my latest and greatest find for helping me to remain a SlimSaver.

Give it a try!
