Talk about a Win-Win!
How can I reduce my grocery bill?
Grocery bills can add up quickly. From fresh produce to paper towels, keeping track of your spending and getting a handle on your grocery bill when everything feels like an essential item is hard work.
At the time of this writing, the cost of groceries has risen dramatically over the last year. With eggs increasing by a staggering 60%, butter jumping 31%, and lettuce up 25%, it's no wonder parents are struggling to stay on budget.
With kids in the house, saving money on groceries can feel like a fantasy.
How can you hope to save money when you have a small army to feed? Not to mention the emotional and financial drain of having to tell your kid "NO", over and over and over again as they plead for their favorite frozen snack or the soda in the checkout line.
It can be tough to have the “money talk” with children without making them feel guilty for wanting a special little something, that’s totally natural! And it can be hard to explain that times are tight without worrying that they will feel nervous or uneasy about the future.
But there’s still hope!
You don't have to keep dreading the grocery store. In fact, the grocery bill is actually a great place to start saving money and teaching your kids financial responsibility.
Harness the Power of Your Kids with GravyStack
Time to turn this stressful situation into a moment where you can not only bond and become closer with your kids, but you can have fun doing it! GravyStack is an app that uses the power of play to get kids and families having fun learning and practicing smart finances. It isn’t just an app that helps you save money on groceries. It turns your kids from chaotic, money-blind drains on your energy and wallet into invested and excited budgeting partners!
GravyStack takes the power struggle moments between parents and kids and turns them into teamwork moments. Instead of saying "No we can't afford that" - you can now say “let’s see how we can afford that.”
Parents on average, save 28% on their grocery bills when using GravyStack. That really adds up!
This money-saving method works by presenting "missions'' for your kids that involve tackling real life money challenges like Grocery Savings or Subscription hunt! And also gives them mini games where they can practice and learn financial skills beyond savings to investing, earning, digital safety and more!
GravyStack was built by world-renowned gamification experts to make learning about money as engaging and fun for kids as playing their favorite video game. This means your kids will not only learn about finances but will actually begin living those lessons by asking for ways to help out more around the house, looking for deals, and deciding on their own what is a want vs a need.
Most importantly, your kids will love being able to contribute to the family in a meaningful way.
GravyStack helps turn moments that used to cause arguing and distance into memories that strengthen your family's bonds. Your kids will look back at the hours they spent completing these financial "missions" with pride.
