Groceries for Free in Canada ~ It can be done ~ #FreeGrocery #Canada

 

People do not believe that you can get your groceries for free when you live in Canada. Many think that those point cards, coupons and all those things are just a waste of time. I have heard things such as “It’s not worth it”, “It takes too much time” “It takes forever to get points & their is no place to get coupons”. I beg to differ. I realized at this moment today; as I snapped the picture, just how little I spent out of my pocket. I filled my trunk with groceries for free. I may even be ahead of the game if you could any special offers on anything I purchased.

It was not just with one store or one coupon, it is a combination of multiple savings tools that anyone can use to save on all your families needs. Please note both our Air Miles and PC Plus Cards were set at zero in  January (we redeemed everything at Christmas) therefore I was not building points for years; it’s very achievable, very quickly.

Where did I go? What did I buy? What bonuses did I get? How many PC Points or Air Miles did I get?  My goal was to spend as little as possible. You may wonder when you see the receipt and wonder why there is no eggs, pork, beef, fish or chicken on the receipts it is because we raise all our own except the fish and that we get off the “fish truck” or from the “fish guy”; I live in Nova Scotia, lots of access to fresh fish.

My first stop was Sobeys’ as I noticed in the flyer that had snacks on sale and with back to school not to mention young kids and grand kids; who am I kidding the 20+ year old kids go to the snack cupboard at my house. It is great when your smaller kids and grand children think chocolate chip granola bars are chocolate bars; your golden with an entire cupboard.

In 4 months I collected $50 in pre paid Visa and only used up $53.46 so I even had $6.54 left for  coffee & donuts. I have lots of points left, found lots of new coupons and restocked up the fridge and goodies. We did not need to take one cent out of our budget for the month. I scored some great coupons that I can now order the kids personalized labels for Christmas.
