"Many of the tools that Erin shares on Grocery Budget Makeover are tools that I already knew about. But what I didn't know was how to really use them all together in a way that made sense. When I worked the system that Erin taught us, everything made sense, it was simple, and I saved hundreds! And I'm excited to save hundreds more!"

What exactly is the Grocery Budget Makeover?

The Grocery Budget Makeover is a 10-week course that will change the way you shop for groceries…forever. Each week, we’ll email you with videos to watch, worksheets (yes, we expect you to fill them out!), free resources to use that week, plus fun tips and tricks, and of course, a weekly challenge. Oh, and we’ll throw in some cooking demos and other fun surprises too!

How will it help me?

This program is designed to reshape and reframe the way you think about shopping for groceries, and how you actually shop. The strategies you’ll learn and implement will make a huge impact on how much you spend on groceries each week.

Does it have a cost?

The cost for the Grocery Budget Makeover is $49 total. Or about $5 a week. It’s a small investment considering we’ll help you shave $49 off your grocery bill in the first month!

I *think* I’m pretty good at grocery shopping/planning, so I’m not sure I’ll learn or apply anything new.

Carry on then. No, wait…. Before you decide this isn’t for you, check out the course curriculum.

How long will this take me each week?

You will have a little homework each week: a 5-to-15-minute video, along with some worksheets to work through, plus several other printable resources.

Think about it in terms of the $$$ savings potential… If you can save $40-$50 per week, in just 30 minutes… that’s not a bad “hourly rate” at all!

My family eats fairly healthy and we buy a lot of organic foods. Will your plan help me cut costs?

That’s how we shop as well. Due to food allergies in our families, we avoid most processed foods. too.

We will show you where you can find coupons for these types of products. However, this makeover is more about changing your mindset and methods of shopping. We will discuss couponing a little bit, but it’s not at all the focus of the makeover!

What if I don’t like it? Will you offer a refund?

Of course! We offer refunds during the first four weeks of the class. To be eligible for a refund, we just ask that you show us your completed worksheets. After all, this won’t work unless you’re doing your part.
