New Grocery Smarts App for Android Phones

NEW! Love your ANDROID phone? Love our grocery lists?
BETA test our App for ANDRIOD phones.
Did you see this notice at the very bottom of your Grocery Smarts store lists?  Maybe I'm slow.  I don't know how long this app has been available, but I downloaded it to my smart phone this afternoon.  I think I'm going to love it!
Features of the Grocery Smarts Android App:
  • Allows you to save any list you want (WITH your adjustments) for use at a later time.
  • Shrinks and unshrinks just like our regular lists. The app eliminates lines you dont want, based on your input in the "QUANTITY" column.
  • Keeps a running total on screen based on "Bottom line price", and the quantity you plan to purchase.
  • Once you have "Shrunk" to the list you want, You can email yourself (or anyone else) a list of the coupons you need to clip or print (Remember, a PC and printer is still the ONLY way to get any printable coupon. Android devices can't print coupons.)
  • When using while at the store, there is a "Checkmark" next to each item, so you can "check it off" your list while shopping.
  • Retains our CLASSIC PROMO HEADERS and SPREADSHEET FORMAT so critical to INSTANTLY understand ALL MIX or MATCH items and all the rules for every promo.
What the app will NOT do:
  • You need a PC and printer to print printable coupons.
  • The ALL-IN-ONE feature will be added with the official launch in the ANDROID MARKET (After the BETA test has concluded)
IMPORTANT: FOR THIS BETA TEST, Please send ALL TECHNICAL feedback to the developer at:

Thanks for helping test the app, and look for the official release soon in the Android Market! (Grocery Smarts is also looking to develop and iPhone App.  I'll keep you posted!  

If you're new to the Grocery Smarts lists, ive in the Las Vegas area and would like to learn how to use the lists, get multiple coupons and save an average of 50% or more on your groceries, household products, and health and beauty items - please give me a call (702-303-0171).  I promise you'll have an enjoyable experience while learning how to maximize your savings by using coupons.

Catalinas Printed: (5) $3/Next Purchase = $15
Total Savings including Catalinas: $112.99(64%)
All in all, it was a pretty good trip.  Remember when you're shopping you will be buying items that you need that you may not have coupons for.  For instance, I got Kroger cheese and the pot roasts on sale - but no coupons.  The milk and bread were a good price, but not on sale.  And finally, my husband wouldn't have let me in the house if I had come home without jam so I paid a little more than I wanted, but so what?!

The object is to save as much money as you can each week.  Keep in mind your needs and be creative in adjusting your menu to what you can find on sale!  Sometimes we can save 75% or more on a shopping trip.  I'm happy if I can consistently save 50 - 60%.  I'm not trying to be an 'extreme couponer', I'm just stretching my budget wherever I can and not stressing over the little stuff!

Sunday Coupon Insert Schedule

There has been some confusion concerning Smart Source coupons and their schedule!  My source said there wouldn't be a Smart Source insert in the 2/13 newspaper - but there was an insert!  I've been holding new newspaper subscription orders from my Grocery Smarts classes because who wants 5 newspapers on Sunday if there's no coupons?  Now I've got some 'splaining to do!  There won't by any inserts in this Sunday's (2/20) newspaper - which makes much more sense since it's a three day weekend.  Those new subs will begin 2/27.  So sorry!  You'll be hearing from me, ladies.

I've researched and found THE source for the Smart Source Insert Schedule -, the publisher!  I'm in process of updating the insert schedule on my sidebar link and will also provide a direct link to the publishers of the Smart Source and Red Plum inserts for your information.

Why is this important?  As I said, who wants all those newspapers when there aren't any coupons inside?  When you know the insert schedule, you can arrange with the newspaper to put your Sunday newspaper on hold for that Sunday.  This will extend your subscription a week and you won't be paying for coupons you aren't receiving.  Makes sense to me!

Tombstone Pizza $1.50/1 Facebook Coupon

When you 'like' Tombstone Pizza on their facebook page you can print a coupon for $1/50/1 Tombstone Pizza.  We'll keep our eyes open for a sale to match it to, but this is a great coupon to print now before print limits are reached!
