Did you blew your budget last year? Well, it’s 2014 – your chance for a fresh start and to stick to your budget again in the new year. Favado, your friendly neighborhood grocery savings mobile app from Savings.com, can help you do just that. Personalized just for you, the Favado money-saving app will help you keep your resolution to save on groceries this year. It’s the solution to keeping your 2014 resolution!

Did you know this about grocery store sales cycles?

Grocery stores and manufacturers work hard to push out their best sale prices to you on a weekly basis through their store circulars. If you follow along closely, you’ll notice that most products operate on an 8-12 week sales cycle. You’ll also find that “product families” all go on sale at the same time, for example all the P&G products will be discounted the same weeks, and will return to their regular prices for a few weeks, then go back on sale together several weeks later.

Following sales cycles and tracking prices can help you save hundreds on groceries every year. Favado does the work for you and shows  you when your favorite products go on sale, so that you can purchase them when they are on sale and not have to pay full price in between sales cycles. Over time, you’ll learn how much to purchase to last you until the next sale.

Simply download the app, set your “Favorites” in the menu bar, and then check the “Faves” filter for the best deals and prices for the brands and products you like.

We’ll be talking all about sales cycles during tonight’s #resolutionsolution Twitter party. There is another $300 in prizes that will be giveaway away tonight!

9 pm EST, here on Twitter. RSVP here.

AND, as if that isn’t enough….

I’ll be hosting another live google chat on Thursday night at 9 pm EST. More details and links to watch to come…

And now…the details on how you can enter to win $500. There are 10 different ways to enter, so go crazy…(And please leave separate comments for each entry!)

I like Favado because I can see what the sales are easily without hunting them down before I decide whether to head to the store or not. And being that the store is 40 miles away, that helps a lot!

I have downloaded the app finally. Time to explore and use the Tips from the chat a few weeks ago.

What about all the extra work I have to do including maintaining an inventory and
reporting it to the IRS, communicating directly with the
customers, packaging their orders, shipping out the orders and then handling any delivery issues.

This is primarily because for so long, Amazon refused
to release the number of Kindle’s sold. Simply Amazing
Growth Potential – here’s The Facts.
