I just completed a four-week trial of The Grocery Game. I read about this website on a blog, and though I'd give it a try. The premise is a good one...they provide a grocery list merged with current coupons and sale prices for the store you choose.
At first I was really impressed. The first week I thought I did really well. However, during the last couple of weeks I have done better on my own, without the list. The Grocery Game list isn't produced until each Tuesday. For a few years, I have been shopping on Monday nights....we like this system! Waiting until Tuesday and then not finding the list useful has been frustrating. I have a very organized coupon system, and I'm very particular about my grocery shopping.
I would recommend the Grocery game if you're just getting started with a food budget and couponing. But for me, I like my regular (albeit OCD) method of shopping and have cancelled my membership to The Grocery Game.
If you want to try it for yourself, you can get a four-week trial for $1. It was worth the $1 for me to try, but not worth the $12 every 8 weeks to continue.
I'll try to make a video or at least take pics of my coupon system. I blogged about the Couponizer, but I've come up with a system (well, I copied it from someone) that works like a charm for me. Joel laughs, but that's all right. He stops laughing when I tell him how much money I save each week!
