Family Market- The new store on honestbee

There is a ” new kid” on board  in  honestbee’s selection of stores-  FAMILY MARKET .  This new store focuses on family and baby essentials that interested customers will find of good value.

Being a busy mum of three, I hardly have time to go supermarket shopping at times. I dread buying groceries with the kids on the weekend as it is extremely crowded  with shoppers making it twice as tiring navigating through the aisle.

For the past few years I have been buying groceries  and household items online as it saves me the hassle of jostling with the crowd and having to lug the heavy bags home after each trip.  Now with even more stores available online  I have even more chances to snap up more bargains.

As you can see from the above screenshots comparing the same item – Pampers Baby Diapers ( L Size) from two different stores on honestbee’s website– NTUC and Family Market there is significant savings if the product is purchased from Family Market.

There is a saving of  $5.30 if the item was purchased from Family  Market. That is a whopping 30% off the listed retail price!!

Is Everything much cheaper at the Family Market?

Not everything sold at Family Market may be cheaper then in other stores. The bottle of Pokka  Jasmine Green Tea is $0.35 more expensive then if it was purchased at NTUC.

The variation of price of an item ,whether it is cheaper or more expensive, depends on  the probability that  the  store you are comparing with is having an offer when you shop.

How about comparing with items from other websites/ stores not from honestbee?

Half Year Review- 2017

Within a blink of the eye half a year has passed. The kids are back in school and having the 3rd term of schooling.  It’s time to do some reflection on how 2017 has been so far for me.

In January I didn’t set any resolutions as I find that it wasn’t something that I want to continue doing. However I did write down 20 Ideas how to make this year the best year ever!!

I cut down blogging drastically and pushed away many engagements as I realign more on building up the bond between the kids and them with me.

Being a Single parent of 3 hasn’t been easy. It has been rather exhausting on ends especially when there are tons of deadlines to meet and also make sure that the kids keep on track with their studies.

To cope with the hectic schedules I’ve looked more closely at mine and the kids nutritional needs.  I’m currently going through some online nutritional courses to learn more about what is the ideal proportion and types of food to serve to the different age groups.

I will be revamping my weekly meal planning further to cut down more on processed and other unhealthy foods from the family diet.  I intend to increase the variety of fruits and  vegetables that I introduce to the kids. I will be cutting down on wheat products and sugary treats too for everyone as they are the main cause of cancers and other life threatening diseases.

I’ll be introducing Quinoa and other grains as replacement for rice and noodles. We won’t be cutting them off totally but reducing the intake of these asian staples drastically.

This month I will be attending a croissant baking class. Tiger girl loves to eat croissants and it makes more financial and health sense to bake my own which is free of unwanted chemicals and cheaper on the pocket.   Besides croissant I will also be scheduling a sweet bun course to attend with a girlfriend.

The breads available commercially has too many preservatives  and can add up to quite a bit as even a simple small cake can cost up to $80 from a posh bakery.

I hope to save some $$ from DIY bread from now onwards.

How has the 1st half of 2017 been for you?
