The Frugal Shoppa App recently launched in South Africa. Meet your personal shopping assistant that helps you spend your money smarter and stay on budget as you shop for your monthly groceries. As an avid budgeter, especially when it comes to our monthly grocery shop, I’m excited to tell you more about the Frugal Shoppa app.

When going grocery shopping, how often do you get to the till and the total is more than what you intended to spend? Does this sound familiar? And would it help if you could keep track of the items in your basket before you even get to the till? It certainly beats walking through the shops with a calculator. The Frugal Shoppa app will now do that for you, with a simple click of the button, and more.

The Frugal Shoppa app is, in essence, a grocery shopping assistant that helps you plan better for shopping trips before even going into the store. It also keeps track of your basket while you shop, to make sure you stay on budget.

So how does the Frugal Shoppa app work?

To start with, download the Android or the iPhone version of the Frugal Shoppa app. You will have to register with a username and password, and you’re good to go.

Before you even get to the shops, you can set up a shopping list on the Frugal Shoppa app. There is a variety of items to choose from, to help make your shopping list as detailed as possible. Choose your supermarket (Checkers / Shoprite / Pick n Pay / Other) and select your budget. You are now ready to start shopping without worrying about going over your budget.  

As you make your way through the aisles, and load items in your shopping trolley, simply scan the prices of the items that you’ve bought and let the Frugal Shoppa app add up the items in your trolley, to help you stay within your budget. How awesome is that? No more calculators in the supermarkets for me, that’s for sure!

The Frugal Shoppa app also allows shoppers to make lists for future trips, and view the specials of all the grocery retailers on one platform. You will then be able to find the best deals around so that you can optimise your spending across multiple retailers, while keeping to the spending targets you have set according to your budget. 

The Frugal Shoppa app adds value to your grocery shopping experience, with custom shopping lists and a budget tracker. You can also manage your long-term grocery spending habits with an easily accessible trip history and previous spending tracker.
