The Supermarket Smarty Review and GIVEAWAY!! **CLOSED**

The Supermarket Smarty
Sponsored post*

Being a wannabe baker, one of the things I struggle with is organization. I have been trying more complicated recipes lately and I cannot tell you how many times I get home from the grocery store, start baking, and then realize I forgot to buy an ingredient. I have also learned that going to the store without a list is a terrible idea. I have gone to the grocery store to only buy milk and have come home with 10 things, but forgot the milk.

I was sent a Supermarket Smarty  to try with the hopes that this product would finally help me get my act together. The Supermarket Smarty is a very cool product. The features include:
  • Easy dry erase surface
  • Menu planner
  • Coupon pocket
  • Magnifying lens (to help read fine print)
  • Magnet clip/pen holder (that attaches to a wall or refrigerator)
  • Retractable and refillable dry erase marker 
There are a lot of great things about this product. I love that I can keep this on the fridge. As soon as I realize we are out of something, I can easily put it on the list without having to find a piece of scrap paper that I would just lose before making my weekly trip to the store. I also really like the coupon holder. Usually, I put my list and coupons in an envelope and these very easily get lost and torn in my purse. It is great to be able to keep everything I need for my shopping trip in one easy package. Plus, it is sturdy and I truly believe that this will last a very long time. The marker is also great. I LOVE that it is retractable instead of capped (that's right, I also have a tendency to lose caps for pens and markers). I think that this product was made for someone like me. The only thing I would have liked to see is a small eraser placed at the end of the pen so I could remove items on the Smarty as I placed them in my cart.

The Supermarket Smarty will be hanging on my fridge and accompanying me on shopping trips for a VERY LONG time!

I need this product because I love the way they have the list organized - it will make my grocery store trip much more time-efficient and help me stay on task!

much better than my scrap of paper or back of an envelope complete with scribbles and on-the-go edits!

I need this product to get organized. I am so bad for clipping coupons but losing them and not using them on sale items. My savings could be so much more than they are.

I need it everthing in one place, instead of a paper in my pocket, under the keyboard, or can't find a pen and just forget!

I am too much of an impulse shopper and this would help me be a planner. Also, I always forget things at the store. I would be more prepared when I go!

I need this because every trip I make to the grocery store, I forget items we're out of and often forget my coupons or meal plan too! I live 50 minutes from the grocery store so going back to get them isn't a realistic option. Thanks for the chance to win! stilljen (at) comcast (dot) net
