It’s that time of the month where the debit orders reign supreme and its time to refill our pantry/ kitchen cupboards.

grocery shopping


I like to purchase products when they are on special and then I buy as many as I can so that I can maximize on the savings and don’t have to purchase at the inflated prices they catch us with each month.

I swear if we had extreme couponing here in SA, I would be the Queeeeeeeen hehehe.

I have a little mental note of most of my grocery items and what the “regular” price is ,so that I know what is really a special and what isn’t and not just take their word on 3 for 2 specials etc. Eg I dont pay more than 39.99 for Hullets 2.5kg sugar or more than R40 for a 900g pack of weetbix, but, ofcourse when you must shop you need to shop and can’t wait till things are on special. So I create my grocery list  and compare the prices at each of our top  grocers. So I decided that i will try to share my finds with you guys every month and have you share yours with me. As far as I can , I prefer to buy at PNP because I earn double points when swiping my Tyme Bank Card.

Please see below my finds – I will arrange them according to the date the special is available
