We are Steven and Lina Zussino, Canada’s frugal
couple family. We live on the west coast in beautiful Victoria, BC. Although we love being surround by sea and mountains the cost of living in Victoria comes with a high price tag. The majority of young Victorians will tell you that it is a hard place to save money and with the average house price of $647K it is hard to get ahead.
With our frugal nature we manage quite well saving more than 75% of our income and we cut our variable costs as well as our fixed expenses by more than 50%.
Grocery Alerts Canada was founded in May 2009 after creating a budget that mapped out our plans to achieve our goals. We soon found out how much we could save by changing some of our spending habits and decided to share this will fellow Canadians. We offer grocery coupons, grocery deals, and showing Canadians how to shrink their grocery bill using coupons and sales. Along with our deals and freebies we also provide useful articles, recipes, reviews on products we love and much much more delivered straight to your inbox.
The website is designed strictly for Canadian grocery shoppers in mind. What sets Grocery Alerts apart from other couponing websites is our coupons and polices are verified prior to being posted on the website. We’re a frugal website, but will spend for quality over quantity.
Today, Grocery Alerts has been named as one of the top coupon websites in Canada, featured in many media outlets and recognized as experts on couponing in Canada. We aim to engage our viewers in providing feedback so we can build a strong community of grocery shopping deal seekers. We encourage real whole food cooking made from scratch rather than convenience foods helping Canadians save money on groceries.
