Makin' It And Savin' It Sunday

Yay for another Makin' It and Savin' It Sunday!!!!
I'm not sure if I'm swallowing this one. Hahaha, I'm funny. Head on over to the Penny Hoarder and read this article about how a family saved money by switching to organic food.
The one tidbit that I found really interesting was how getting groceries delivered helped them save money because it stopped impulse buying. Also, the leftover soup sounds like something right up my lazy alley.
Have you tried any of these?
Happy Sunday,
Sonya Ann

I don't think it would work in London. We don't have anyone by the roadside selling organic food here.

Nor here. Organic produce IS very dear, and the Farmers' Markets aren't cheap either. Good, flavourful, but not cheap.
Left-over soups and stews are a great idea though.

Jenny Woolf-Well, you should move to bring old Antioch just for the fruit. No, it probably wouldn't be as exciting. But we do have a thrift shop. LOL

Elephant's Child-We have a market here every Thursday and it is quite fun but pricey. They do sell everything off cheap at the end of the night though.

I should do this too! It is ridiculous how much I spend for 5 of us every week and that is shopping at Aldi and Fair Share. Would love to lower the grocery bills forever!

Sonya Ann said...

MiserlyMac-I am obviously a liar. I keep saying how I want to lower the grocery bill and it keeps going up. Mind you, Anna and her BF are here plus DJ so I'm hoping that when they go back, it will go down a bit. But don't count on it.

I think having stuff delivered does save money sometimes. Since signing up for Amazon Prime, I order things from Amazon that I used to go to the store to buy. It is really hard to go in a store and buy JUST ONE THING. But not so hard on Amazon. Works for us!

Frances-I have been wondering if it was a time saver or a money saver or both. DO you think that it would be possible to get everything that you need on Amazon? I haven't shopped like that before or even researched it. We are getting an Amazon hub about 20 minutes from us so it would mean that we would get delivery super quick.
