I feel completely blessed living only a few miles from the Grocery Outlet. It means that I can regularly visit their store to see what new items have arrived on their shelves. I've loved Grocery Outlet for years and when they recently asked me if I would team up with them to share my Grocery Outlet frugal finds with all of you, I had to say yes. Grocery Outlet has given me $50 to spend in their store and share what I found here on Apron Thrift Girl. Please read my disclosure policy to learn more about how this works.
After a very busy Sunday with the family I looked forward to going shopping on my own last night. I arrived around 6pm and the store was still quite busy.
I find it really surprising to see how many natural and organic brands are on offer. Tom's of Maine products seem to always be in our store. $2.69 for their toothpaste? I don't think that price is comparable anywhere. I also found some Arnicare Cream which we use faithfully on every bump and bruise that happens around here. I paid $3.99 while the original price was $10.99.
It's fun to spot the natural/organic products while I'm shopping. Organic Beans were 99¢ each, Tomato Sauce were 39¢ a can and the Coconut Milk 99¢ a can. We are using the black beans today in a delicious mango bean sauce to go on our BBQ Hamburgers.
Don't forget to look in the refrigerated area. There is often organic cheese, Smart Balance Margarine and Aidelles natural products. I picked up the pork sausage for breakfast because it has no preservatives or MSG. It was $2.59. The Cheddar Cheese with Alaska Smoked Salmon was $2.49.
I was never a sauerkraut fan as a child. I couldn't stand the stuff but something in my taste buds changed in the last few years and now I can't get enough of it. Eden Organics is one of my top favorite Organic brands and yet I haven't ever tried their sauerkraut. The Sauerkraut was $2.99 a jar and the pickled Asparagus was 99¢.
I saved the best for last. My friend Shara told me that these fabulous cookies were in the store. Pamela Cookies were only 99¢ a box. These are usually sold for at least $3.50 a box. Not only are they gluten free but they don't have any processed sugar in them. They are sweetened with grape juice and brown rice syrup. I'm planning to make some ganache to add on top when I next crave a treat. Even by themselves they are mouthwatering. I love being able to buy gluten free products for less. It really helps with my frugality goals.
The Grocery Outlet even offer special savings. Their next ad starts tomorrow and goes through to June 8th. I got to take a peak and was excited to see Alexia Seasoned Onion Snacks on sale for 99¢ a bag. Dave and the children love them.
Don't forget to Like Grocery Outlet at Facebook. They are just about to launch their first ever contest there that you won't want to miss. You take a photo of your G.O. receipt and you could win what you saved in the store. If I take a look at my receipt it says that I saved $43.90.
