Saving money is always on the front of my mind. I like to save money wherever I go and don’t like to pay full price for anything. Luckily, Food Lion is making my job even easier. Food Lion has an amazing mobile app that will change the way you shop with them. If you don’t have the app, let me share some of these incredible features with you.
How many of us feel productive by making a shopping list and then forget it at home? That doesn’t need to happen anymore. Thankfully, with the Food Lion mobile app, you can add items from the weekly ad right on your phone. You can also add items from recipes and find coupons, all with the tap of a button. Don’t forget you can load those coupons right onto your MVP card via the app.
Access to Weekly Ads
Since we travel full time, it’s hard to get ads in the mail which is why I love Food Lion’s mobile app! You can look at your smartphone and start saving money right away. Having access to weekly ads right on your smartphone is life changing.
Load up on Recipes
I love to try new recipes, so I love that you can find recipes with their mobile app. You can even search recipes based on ingredients. I seriously adore this part of the app. If you’re a meal planner, just like me, then you’re going to love this feature. You can also save your favorite recipes for future reference.
Of course, the best thing about the Food Lion mobile app is that it’s free. This makes Food Lion a great place to shop because it makes grocery shopping even more affordable for all of us. Their mobile app isn’t new, but it is has been revamped. Saving money just got even easier and a whole lot more fun.

Skillet Baked Mac and Cheese
- 2 cups Elbow Macaroni
- 2 tablespoons butter or margarine – (I used real butter)
- 2 cups whole milk
- 2 tablespoons corn starch
- 2 1/4 cups shredded cheese
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Preheat oven to 350°F
Bring a pot of water to a boil, adding a teaspoon of salt
While the water is boiling, melt your 2 tablespoons of butter in your skillet or pan large enough to hold all of your macaroni when it is done.
Add 2 tablespoons of cornstarch to the melted butter and stir until it turns lightly brown. This takes about 1-2 minutes.
Add 2 cups of milk and whisk the butter and milk mixture together until all of the lumps are gone.
Add the salt and pepper and whisk into your milk and butter mixture.
Add 1 3/4 cups of Food Lion Elbow Macaroni to the boiling water and stir the pasta so it does not stick together. Turn it down to a medium heat and set your timer for 6 minutes so pasta cooks but is still slightly firm when done.
Continue with the following steps while your pasta is boiling.
Stir your milk and butter mixture for about 6 minutes or until it thickens.
Add 1/2 cup of sour cream to your mixture and whisk until smooth.
Add 2 cups of Food Lion Mild Cheddar Cheese to your mixture and whisk until it is creamy and all of the cheese has melted. Turn off the heat.
When your pasta is done cooking, but is still slightly firm, rinse and drain it. Add the pasta to your cheese mixture in your skillet.
Add 1/4 cup Shredded Cheese to the top of your macaroni mixture and bake for 20-25 minutes until bubbly and slightly browned. If you are not using a skillet, you will need to increase your baking time to 40 minutes.

I am a Wife, mom to 4 kids, homeschool mom, blogger, social media junkie, Frugalista, Book Worm, and Closet Want-to-be Chef. We are a Roadschool family (homeschooling on the road while traveling fulltime).
I grew up learning ways to save from my mom and grandma. I started my own coupon journey when my first child was born in 2009 and started the blog on 2010 when baby #2 was born to share my tips with everyone who kept asking about how I was getting diapers for $1 a pack!
