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.

  1. It looks interesting. I’m not much for driving all around to grocery shop, so I’m not sure how helpful it will be.

    1. Jess – That’s just one feature to compare between stores if you happen to want to shop at a different store for the week based on their meat prices for example; it also just features all the coupon matchups for your favorite store, too. Another feature is you can have them notify you when your favorite brands go on sale at your favorite store, so you don’t miss stocking up.

  2. I downloaded the Favado App. I love how you can compare the different stores on prices of things you actually use. It is so much easier than scouring through the ads.

  3. I subscribe to the emails…and I love them! They help me catch things that may have gotten lost on Facebook.

  4. I downloaded Favado! I like that I don’t have to hand write lists anymore. Time saves is nice:-).

  5. signed up, downloaded app to my tablet, and the app is nice. i like that it can alert you to discounts of things you like and use.

  6. I downloaded the app and I like that it shows me the sale items at my favorite stores, so I don’t have to search online or in the newspaper.

  7. I signed up for the app and I really like how useful it is! I love to coupon so this would be an asset to my daily life especially with match ups.

  8. I’ve had the app on my phone for a while but haven’t had a chance to really dig into it. It looks quite helpful though.

  9. I signed up for the favado app. I dont know how much I will use it because I tend to forget. I like how I can compare prices for different stores.

  10. i downloaded teh app. I like it because I can see all the matchups in one place. and it has almost all my stores I go to.

  11. I have the app. I like that it has coupon match ups but wish it had Safeway as a store.

    1. It does have Safeway! Maybe it’s not located close enough to your location for it to find?

  12. I downloaded it about 3 weeks ago. I love that it tells you when there are matching coupons to make the sale price even better!

  13. I have been using this app since you first posted it. I miss the Costco grocer. It is no longer showing me Costco ads

  14. I love Thrifty NW Mom on Facebook. I recommend it to everyone. Such great tips. I’m not sure I’m saving money though, I seem to be spending money on all the great deals I find. I’m not complaining at all. :)

  15. I definitely shared it with my Facebook friends. Again, love the great advice and tips.

  16. I have downloaded the app…well got an account. I have a Windows Phone though so going to have to figure something out. Hoping I can get the deals via email perhaps.

  17. I have signed up for your daily newsletter. I just recently moved to Utah…wish I had found your site sooner as I lived in the Seattle area previously.

  18. Signed up. I like that it gives me the coupon matchups from my store and it lets me know when my favorite products go on sale

  22. I downloaded, and love that you can search for a specific item you’re looking for. It makes it so much easier than manually looking through 4 different sale ads

  27. I’ve signed up – looks easy to use though haven’t gotten the chance to really delve into it yet

  28. I love this app, its much easier to work with then the local blogs I was using to see sales

  29. I am so glad I found this app, I think it will definitely save time and help me organize and save money. I love that I can save my favorite brands to be notified when they go on sale!

  30. This is a great app! I sometimes use coupons but with this app I won’t have to go looking for coupons cause it’s all right there in the palm of my hand and it’s free! It has so many local stores. It was also a fast download. Doesn’t get any better!

  31. I downloaded the app and I love it! Seeing the weekly grocery specials is great but I particularly love the inclusion of Costco! I have a hard time keeping up with the Costco coupon books so this will be an easy way for me to do so! Thanks for the recommendation!

  32. I love it when I’m out and about and haven’t planned on shopping. Even if I don’t have coupons, I know which items are the best deals and which ones I should wait on and make another stop later.

  33. I’ve downloaded the app….I love that I can add to a grocery list and enter my own items even if not on sale!

  34. I’m signed up using POKERGRL8 at and I think its a quick and easy way to save money!

  35. already subscribe to the e-mails and love them. I referenced you to my husband last night, pretty funny!

  36. with a 1 year old i think i already have enough going on at the grocery store so bringing an app with me is not something i see myself doing. I like coupons and sales but still only buy what i need and use and don’t go hunting for a good deal unless its already on my list

  37. I downloaded the app. I really like it because I am not good at couponing. The app provides coupon matchups.

  38. I DL the Favado App.
    I really like how it will alert you whenever your favorite groceries are on sale. This is a really cool app, because I am really bad at finding coupons.

  39. I signed up for your emails/Newsletter.
    Thank you for the chance to win. This would help me a lot.
