We love to hear stories from our readers like this one, Family of 5 with a $200-300/month grocery budget or How to feed a family of 6 on roughly $200 per week.

These are real readers that have shared their tips and tricks.

We plan on starting a “Readers Stories” feature each week on Grocery Alerts where we share an actual story from a reader like you.

The stories can be instructive, describing how to do more with your grocery budget or an incredible frugal recipe.

It could be inspirational, showing how you achieved success with your budget after hardship.

Please remember these tips:

  • Keep things entertaining! Write naturally, as if you were sending an e-mail to a friend. Don’t try to pretty it up for GroceryAlerts.ca. We’ll help edit things so they’re presentable.
  • Length doesn’t matter (your story can be long or short). You don’t have to put the story in MS Word or any other format. Just type it up and send it over to szussino@groceryalerts.ca.
  • And if you need to be anonymous for whatever reason, be sure to specify that, too.
