A couple weeks ago my pals at Grocery Outlet asked if I’d be game to try running monthly giveaways here at the blog! So we’re going to try this for three months and if you’re in favor – whoop, hollar, jump up and down – and this three-month trial may turn into a more permanent fixture!
So here’s what I found yesterday at the South Tacoma store on 56th. (By the way, if you’re at all local – DO stop in. I adore this store and the team that run it! They’re super friendly!) Before we get started, I should mention that these stores are locally owned and operated and that some of the deals may vary by store. Use this post as an idea of what you might find, but know that your local store may differ in their selection and/or pricing.
Raspberries & Blueberries
$1.50 for the small containers
Peaches, 2 lb bag
Dr Scholl Sport Insoles for Women
SPF 30 Face & Body Sun Lotion
All Kinds of Soaps
Starting at $0.99
(I’m a big sucker for pretty soaps…I ended up buying a beautiful goat’s milk soap with lavendar oil for just $1.50!)
Anti-Aging Skin Care
(Check out the “elsewhere” prices on these!)
Organic Blue Agave
(That’s a great price for this item!)
Fancy Sea Salts in Grinders
$2.99 (elsewhere $14.99)
Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks (Spongebob & Little Pony)
Arrowhead Organic Gluten Free Pancake Mix
Organic Basil Paste
So yes, this was running close to expiration, but I did buy a couple tubes thinking I could squeeze it into ice cube trays and freeze it. Thoughts???
Small Cut Pasta, small bags
(I bought these cute ABC pastas!)
Nancy’s Dessert Spirals
Dulce de Leche Cheerios
(That’s a pretty strong price for this item)
(Found this on a display by the meat/dairy section)
Naked Coconut Water, 32 oz
(I was really excited about this deal – I bought a couple myself!)
All told, I spent $64 on everything pictured below….(minus the ballerina, of course)
Not bad, considering I didn’t use a single coupon today! In looking at my receipt, the most expensive items I purchased were the gourmet salt and red wine (both at $2.99)!
New to Grocery Outlet? Remember they are a different kind of grocery store, offering deep discounts on food through relationships they have with stores and manufacturers. Because of this, the manufacturers do not permit customers to redeem coupons at Grocery Outlet. However, Grocery Outlet does put out store coupons from time to time. For more information, please read my initial review trip from last summer as well as my trip to Berkeley last fall where I met with the Grocery Outlet corporate team.
