This Convenience Improved our Time- and Money-savings
on April 25, 2013
How many times does a luxury actually save you time and money? Not often enough.
I used to make my own fresh granola and store it in a spare refrigerator. For the quality and price of the granola I'm accustom to making, Bob's granola is a solid deal. I used to run to the local grocery and health food stores to pick up all the most healthful grains and non-sulfured dried fruits. The driving, shopping, prep, and manufacturing time, made this a minimum one-day job. When the kids were young, I would get them to help stirring the ingredients in the very large mixing bowl. It was always fun until the kids got older and none of us wanted to devote a day to granola, so we stopped. We were a family with a need, but without a solution.
One day, I was buying bread-making ingredients on Amazon. Just before clicking the Submit button, I stopped to recheck if there were other items I needed to add, when it hit me -- doesn't Bob make granola?? Sure enough!! I quickly calculated the cost of buying Bob's granola versus making my own. The numbers were good, so I found a few flavors we'd like and bought one case of each. All met my criteria for ingredients. I reasoned that the risk of ending up with packages of granola we wouldn't like or eat was low, and leaned on my faith in Bob's brand. All the flavors are new family favorites.
Where I used to buy Bob's Red Mill grains for my granola anyway, we will now have Bob's ready-to-eat granola delivered. I saved money not having to pay inflated grocery store prices for the ingredients, as well as the time, gas, and inconvenience of having to go to the grocery store to give them my money. Bob's granola is a time- and money-saving luxury.
I want to finish this review my saying that as a work-at-home Mr. Mom, I spend a portion of my grocery budget on Amazon. Instead of paying for faster shipping, or using the SuperSaver option and waiting a little longer, my Amazon Prime membership (which paid for itself in the first four months) increases my money savings and gets my orders delivered faster. I hope you find this review helpful. Thanks for reading.
