If you’re one of the many college students who do their own grocery shopping, if you’ve got a meal plan that you don’t rely on exclusively, or if you have an empty fridge sitting in your dorm room, you should check out MyGrubFindr on Facebook! This app is designed to help college students save money on their groceries by linking them to great savings at their local stores!
Once you connect MyGrubFindr to your Facebook page, all you have to plug in is your zip code and your personal grocery list. Are you craving chocolate chip pancakes? Just type “pancake mix” and “chocolate chips” into the provided text box to summon a list of related sales and deals at your local grocery stores. You can even pre-set MyGrubFindr to only show your favorite tried-and-true grocer (if you have one).
After perusing MyGrubFindr’s personalized list of bargain comparisons, you can select the ones you want and create your own official shopping list in moments. Email, print, or SMS the list to your phone and voila, you’re ready to grab a cart and go!
If you want some suggestions for building your grocery list, you should check out MyGrubFindr’s featured lists, such as “College Staples” (easy mac, frozen pizza, soup, etc.), “Date Night,” and even “Hangover Breakfast.” You can add the things on these pre-constructed lists to your own for a versatile, all-weather, go-to shopping list.
You can follow MyGrubFindr on Twitter to get access to more fun tips on shopping and cooking within a college student budget. Go get that Grub!
