Saving money on groceries can be a challenge.

Most of us go to the same stores on our weekly grocery trip. And as we shop, we try to save money by buying generic brands, using rewards cards or simply by cutting back. Clipping sales circulars like extreme couponers isn't sustainable for everyone.

The Basket app thinks you shouldn't have to tweak your grocery list to lower your weekly food bill; you need to change where you're shopping spend less on your food.
