Is anyone else in Canada using the Flashfood app? (I think it's also available in a couple random U.S. locations in Pennsylvania?)
It's great for anyone stretching grocery budget, looking to buy bulk things for preserving, or people like me who are just cheap as hell.
Check it out!
Here's my order from the other day. I tend to purchase meats that are all ready "cheap" and freeze them, boxes of peppers (because they're super
expensive here) to slice and freeze, fruits and cheeses that's we'd eat right away, and breads that can be frozen and reheated in the oven like
baguette that I can use last minute to crisp up for guests.
Meat is typically 50% off:
And fruit and veg are done up in boxes ranging from 50-90% off:
Bread is usually 75-90% off, but it is always 1-2 days out from expiring. If you know what freezes well, you can get some good deals on higher quality
breads to use in a pinch.
I've never seen this advertised anywhere other than at the grocery store itself.
Hopefully this saves some Canadian ATS (...or Pennsylvanian??? Why?) members some money during these weird weird times. I've been using it since
August and my freezers are full.
