Is one of your New Year’s resolutions for 2014 to cut your budget and lower your spending? It’s the start of a New Year and many of us are looking at our budgets much more closely this year, especially after the busy holiday season. That’s a goal my husband and I have, too, to get back on track with closely tracking our spending & really staying on budget to save big this year.
If you want to trim your budget, you’ll definitely want to look first at your grocery budget as this is often one of the highest areas of your household budget, but the good news is that it’s also one of the best places to make significant cuts.
One of the easiest ways we’ve found is with the new free Favado Grocery Savings mobile App which was released back in October. This is definitely my favorite app from 2013 as it makes it so much easier to find ways to save at the grocery & drugstores, as well as Costco, Target, & more. This is the perfect tool to help you save as you can use it as much or as little as you want & still save no matter what.
