HubPage Article Read By Chatelaine Writer

When I first published How To Save Money Shopping For Groceries In Canada, I was writing this hub to be helpful to other people that are trying to save money on their weekly grocery bill.

When making a grocery list, I write the list by food aisle starting with the first isle I go down. I find this the most time savings way to do it, and if I only buy what is on the list, it's another way to save money at the checkout.

You Never Know Who Will Read Your Articles

One day shortly after it was published on HubPages, I received an email from Kira Vermond, a writer for Chatelaine Magazine in Canada. She stated that she was writing an article on saving money on grocery bills. While doing research she came upon my Hubpage article and wanted to know if she could interview me over the phone. Very excited I immediately sent her a reply saying I would be delighted to talk to her.

Later that day she called me and we discussed how I make a list up from flyers and such. We talked for about twenty minutes. Kira told me that my name would be mentioned in her article and would be out in December.

Chatelaine Magazine has been publishing in both English and French since 1928. They cover a variety of topics from cooking and recipes, health, current affairs, fashion and beauty to home décor. 

You just never know who will come upon a hub that you write.

It was so nice to have had Kira see my article, read it and then want to interview me about it. Having someone give you recognition for something that you have written is a wonderful feeling. The potential on HubPages is endless as you can see by the many hubbers that have shared their success stories.

Great result, to get a mention like that. You are now the offical expert. And I like your aisle-by-aisle tip. I usually keep a basic category on my computer then copy and add things each week so they are grouped in the same category like dairy, meat, etc.
