Shopping strategies, to help Arkansans save money on groceries

Let's face it, no brick-and-mortar store truthfully wants you to save your money. They are open to only one idea and it's you spending money, and the more you spend the better it is for them. But what about you?

Prices are soaring, which indicates you'll be spending more at your local market but getting even less for your dollars. In today's article, I will share my grocery shopping strategies with you. Why pay more for fewer products, when you can spend less and get more for your hard-earned dollars?

So, what's the secret? Well, there's no classified information to tell, only intelligent money-saving information. So you won't have to settle for buying cases of Ramen noodles to feed your family all week long. Have you heard of Misfits Market and Wild Fork Foods? They have recently started delivering to "The Natural State"; and their prices are downright unbeatable at both stores.

The savings truly begin by ordering at Wild Fork Foods, for meat, and vegan foods. Wild Fork also sells quality desserts, bread, and frozen vegetables among their outstanding meat selection. They offer a subscription for 29.00 so that you can get free shipping for a year through them. The orders are then packed in styrofoam coolers, with dry ice, then packaged in well-made, heavy-duty boxes before being shipped. My orders get delivered to my door by UPS. (You can order as much or as little as you need.)

Next, is Misfits Market, the place for buying fresh produce, and if you are interested in placing an order through them today, click on the link and you'll receive a discount of 10.00 off your first order.

Here's a brief example of my order this week at Misfits Market.


Qty Madness Box Subscription 1 for 35.00

  • Organic Beefsteak Tomatoes
  • Organic Russet Potatoes
  • Organic Valencia Oranges
  • Organic White Onions
  • Organic Red Onions
  • Organic Mixed Head Lettuce
  • Organic Grape Tomatoes
  • Organic Green Leaf Lettuce
  • Organic Collard Greens
  • Organic Loose Orange Carrots
  • Organic Red Cabbage
  • Organic Green Cabbage
  • Organic Yellow Potatoes
  • Organic Mandarin Oranges
  • Marketplace Add-Ons
  • Organic Mini Seedless Watermelon 1 price 3.29
  • Organic Whole White Mushrooms, 8 Oz 1 price 1.69
  • All-Purpose Flour, 3 Lb 1 price 1.99

My total order would have been 35.00 for my Madness Subscription box, plus 5.50 shipping, however, I added a few other items in my cart, and my total costs totaled 49.09. Yes! I received all of that for less than 50.00. Whichever box size you decide to go with there is the 5.50 for shipping. And unless you live by a nearby grocery store location you'll end up spending more than that on gas to go shopping.

When considering Misfits Market there are so many different options to choose from, and you can build your box however you want, there is also the option for a smaller box order if the Madness Subscription is too much food for you to manage at once. You can set the subscription up weekly, biweekly, skip altogether, and cancel at your convenience at any time. There are no gimmicks, just fresh organically grown fruits and vegetables waiting to be picked for you.

It's also worth mentioning that Misfits Market also sells flour, baking chocolate, Muscle Milk, oat milk, organic nut spreads, organic dog treats, and much more. And at Wild Fork Foods the range of meat products available begin at real beef hot dogs, organic bratwurst, sausages, salmon, shrimp, whitening, cod, ground beef round, ground beef in higher fat percentages, steaks, bison, rabbit, venison, quail, chicken, and so much more.

In today's times, saving money is practical, and buying food at these two locations will indeed save money on your next grocery bills, and the unbelievable part of it is that both of these businesses sell Non-GMO organic foods. My savings average out around 40 percent less a week since I'm not shopping at brick and mortar stores, plus I am also saving on fuel costs.
