Buffet brunch menu idea #FlippList

Now that my husband is working on a new job site, his schedule requires him to work late hours and sometimes during the weekend. This means that the majority of meal prep has now fallen on my shoulders. Gulp! Not only do I have to make sure I prepare meals that are edible, I now need to take on most of the grocery shopping, something I was happy to let my husband worry about. Since I have a terrible habit of trying to memorize my shopping list, it is almost inevitable that I will forget something. Write down my shopping list on a piece of paper, you say? Sure. I could do that. But that would require effort. And then I'd have to fish out that slip of paper from the depths of my purse once I got to the store. No. I needed something that I wouldn't lose. Something that I would always have at my fingertips. Introducing Flipp 2.0 - A Walmart shopper's best friend.

As my mission, I was tasked with shopping for groceries that I would require for a family brunch. Knowing that I would need a fool-proof menu, I opted for a fruit kebob / blueberry waffle / granola yogurt mini buffet. Then it was time to record my shopping list using the newest feature of the Flipp app. The Shopping List feature allows you to plan ahead and keep track of your shopping needs while using newly enhanced search functionality to find the best deals and even price match with ease.

With my #FlippList ready to go, I headed out to my local Walmart to purchase some fresh produce as well as some granola, yogurt and gluten free frozen waffles that I like to have on hand in case I'm running late and don't have time make a fresh batch. I also found some organic frozen berries which will make for a yummy breakfast smoothie. Included in my purchase was a tub of Cascade dishwasher detergent I noticed was advertised as on a rollback on the Walmart e-flyer. Since I knew that it would help support the Clean Water initiative, I was happy to buy it. Plus, who wants to wash dishes by hand after slaving over brunch prep, right?

In all the excitement of having crossed everything off my #FlippList, I forgot to take advantage of a price match opportunity while at the cash register. Luckily, the customer behind me told me I could easily rectify that at the Customer Service desk, which coincidentally had not one person in line. In a matter of minutes, I was able to get a refund for an item by showing a current advertised price for an identical item via the Flipp app.

What I really love about the updated Flipp app is how easily it keeps track of my shopping list while cross-referencing items with current flyers and any clippings I have taken. Starting a new list is rather easy too since you can delete everything on your current list or check off items you don't necessarily buy on a regular basis such as, oh, I don't know... this stylish Home Trends black and white Damask table cloth

So there you have it. Toasted blueberry waffles, fresh fruit kebobs and one of my favourite granola mixes paired with vanilla yogurt. Shopping for this simple yet scrumptious brunch buffet couldn't be more enjoyable knowing that I saved time, money and potential tears in the kitchen. Please. Hold the applause.

  1. I love using my Flipp, the only problem I have is that they do not show my two grocery stores, so I still have to take in the flyers with me, which is a big pain in the butt!!
