With Cocoa & Chocolate Prices on the Rise, It’s Favado to the Rescue!

Just this morning I was picking up a bunch of paper crafts and goodies for my kids to put together for their classmates tonight, in advance of the Valentine’s Day class parties tomorrow. I was bound and determined to be that mom who doesn’t send in candy, but glow stick bracelets, pencils, and playdoh instead. But what did I end up grabbing…a bag of chocolate…okay, fine…2 bags of chocolate.”Because Mom, it’s lame if you don’t give out candy,” said my oldest son.  There will be plenty for everyone in all their classes and a few bites for me too.

I was a bit surprised at the price of the bags, at first chalking it up to inflation. And then I came home to see an article in the NYTimes about the rising costs of chocolate in advance of Valentine’s Day because of the spike in cocoa price.

Of course, this is disappointing to both my pocketbook and my taste buds. But alas, I know I can count on the Favado app to faithfully tell me which stores have the best price on Valentine’s Day chocolates this year!

Favado loves you and wants to make sure you don’t spend too much on chocolate-y treats this year!

#MyFavado - Monica saves 60% on Every Grocery Shopping Trip Using Favado

Monica shares her savings goal for each and every shopping trip and how she uses the app to reach that goal. 

A few years ago, I had to leave a job and career I loved because of an illness. Disability pay is so tough on my family, but I had to do the best I could to make ends meet. Favado is one of those ways I have chosen to use . . .

Before I do any shopping, I check Favado first. I have a goal of saving 60% of EACH shopping trip – i.e., groceries, etc. Favado has helped me reach my goals, and I’ll be increasing my goal from 60% to 70% for 2015. Couldn’t have done it without Favado!

Thanks for making it so easy to save money for my family of 6!

Monica’s #MyFavado Savings Secret

My favorite secret with Favado probably isn’t a secret. But, I love how it shows me what the sale is and which coupons I should use to get the lowest price.

I also love the feature where you can search for an item and the app will show you the best price nearby.

#MyFavado – How Ashli Uses Favado to Offset Medical Expenses

How Ashli Uses Favado to Offset Medical Expense

This is a story shared by Ashli, an app user who is making a tough financial situation a little easier to manage thanks to saving money on groceries with Favado. Warning: It’s touching and inspirational. 

By using Favado, we are healing my special needs son’s health issues.

Let me explain.

Each month his medical expenses for Autism and Lyme disease are $3,000. By using Favado to save money on our groceries and household items, we free up even more money for his therapies, medications, and other needs. Every penny matters.

We hope by increasing the amount we can use for Josh, that by the time he turns 6, this year, he will finally be able to speak. He has not spoken since he was 2 1/2. I long to hear mommy, I love you, and even just a simple yes or no. For Joshua to be able to communicate, we have to save where we can so we can put it towards his needs. By couponing and using Favado, we have been able to lower our grocery bill. And that is a priceless gift…the gift of health care for our precious little warrior.

How Ashli Uses Favado

I am able to look up deals prior to our grocery trips. I make a list of essentials that we will need for the week and then use Favado to find where our dollar will go the furthest. Although many times this means multiple grocery store trips, it means we will have more available money to help our son.

The other thing I love about my Favado app is the grocery list option! Once I have all my deals selected, I can email my list and print it out. I love that it categorizes it by store so it makes shopping at each place… easy peasy.

Favado also features all my favorite stores! I love that!! I can specify which ones I need to shop at that day and it will only show me those deals for those stores! I can limit the amount of stores and then look and see which ones are the cheapest for our family!

Annnndddd… It shows me what coupons are out there and where to get them!!! How awesome, right? Favado has made couponing and saving money for our family so
simple, easy, and best of all, efficient!!! I love my Favado! Thank you Favado, for being a part of our sons recovery and our family’s future!!

#MyFavado – How Kimberleigh Saves For Her Family of 8

#MyFavado - How Kimberleigh Saves For Her Family of 8 at Favado.com/blog

Kimberleigh, an avid Favado user shares this…plus, she has some wise words on how to save on groceries.

Favado has helped me save up to 50% on my weekly groceries which is A LOT for our 8 person household! It makes planning my grocery shopping trips so much easier. With Favado, I am able to spend less time doing research on weekly sales and less time trying to go through my coupons and create match ups to find the best possible savings. The app does everything for you.

It also allows me to compare prices at different stores all in one place. No more scattered messes on my table, no more ads getting torn up by my curious toddlers! And the best part is, that it allows me to spend more time with my family because I’m not constantly searching for the best deals, which as any couponer knows, can take up a good part of an entire day!

I love that it gives me the weekly sale prices as well as the breakdown on which coupons to use to get the best final price after sale and coupons. All I have to do is search for the items my family will consume and add it to my list. Then, I print out my list, head to the store without guessing, and voila! Head home, put groceries away and get started on dinner and family time! THANK YOU FAVADO!

Kimberleigh’s Savings Tip

My #1 secret to saving money at the grocery store is to keep track of what’s in season and what is not. I also try to know the sales cycles, and when items are at my stock up price, I will buy enough to get us through to the next time the sale cycles around so as not to pay more “in a rush.” Also have to do price comparisons to all stores to make sure there isn’t a better deal somewhere else.

I discovered Favado one day out of the blue. This app was made for newbies like me, who never used to look at price tags to appreciate the beauty of savings. Favado tells you exactly what to get, when to get it, and where to get it to maximize savings. It is so convenient! I used to be happy saving $1 on an item. Now I don’t shop until I can map out a total saving of at least 70% before I go to the grocery store.

I remember the first time trying out Favado. I was standing in CVS with my book of coupons and Favado opened on my phone; I was determined to save big. Everything was mapped out in my head, but I was so nervous. I knew what I needed to get but felt that I was going miss something and it wouldn’t work out. When I finally pulled the cart up to the register, it was judgment time. The cashier was so nice; she was very willing to help me. She scanned the items slowly so that I could review them. After all items were entered, the total amount due started dropping rapidly. It was such a rush! I ended up with a savings of 85% and ExtraCare bucks to spare. 

I cleared my shopping list on Favado on my way out and thought, “That’s a life skill they don’t teach you in school!”
