As a reminder, awhile ago now my pals at Grocery Outlet asked if I’d be game to try running monthly giveaways here at the blog! This is month 2 of 3, so please do let me know what you think about having not only a monthly Grocery Outlet list, but a once-monthly chance to win a Grocery Outlet gift card!
I stopped in at the South Tacoma store on 56th yesterday and wanted to report on what I found. (By the way, if you’re at all local – DO stop in. 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.
Kashi Heart-to-Heart Cereal $1.49
This is a really fantastic price and happens to be my favorite cereal! I love it with almond milk, and it’s even better with a handful of wild blackberries! I’ve also purchased about 6 boxes to date…
Chex Mix $0.79
Aveeno Baby Sunscreen $5.99
Assorted Anti-Aging Skin Care Products…cheap!!
You can always count on Grocery Outlet for CHEAP skin care products, and NICE ones at that! I found one item priced at $7.99 that’s normally about $119. Yup, this is quite typical for what you’ll find there!
Cupcake soap $0.99
I’ve reported on this deal before, and it’s still good! This stuff smells amazing and would make nice gifts! Check out the soap next to it for $1.99 – elsewhere it’d be $9.95! I currently have some goat milk soap in my shower caddy that I purchased at where else? Grocery Outlet!
Limes $0.20 each
Bananas, 3 lb Bag $1.99
Green Peppers $0.50 and Red Peppers $0.59! (The others were $1.50, I believe)
One thing you should know about Grocery Outlet’s produce: they sell everything by quantity or package, not weight. So you’ll know exactly what the bag of onions, bag of peaches, or container of strawberries will cost.
Kumato Brown Tomatoes $2
Check these out – aren’t they beautiful? They remind me much of the chocolate cherry tomatoes I’m growing in my garden! I have this thing about tomatoes too – I always HAVE to smell them. I think this comes from having grown my own before – you just KNOW the difference between garden-fresh and well…not so garden-fresh. Let me tell you, these smelled so fragrant!
Cilantro, Radishes, Green Onions, Cucumbers $0.50 each
Sea Salts, Gourmet $2.99 (elsewhere $14!)
This deal has been around for awhile! I recently picked up a bottle of the lemon sea salt and used it to top off some steamed chard from my garden. The flavor was amazing!
Mt. Vikos Feta Cheese $3.99 (save up to $11! WOW!)
So I found lots and LOTS of cheeses on sale at my Grocery Outlet store…. observe.
Pilgrim’s Londoner English Cheddar or Red Leicester Cheese $1.99
(This particular variety was running close to date, so you’d want to plan on using it up or freezing it)
Goat Cheese Log $1.99 (elsewhere $5.99!)
Precious Mozzarella Balls $1.99 (elsewhere $5.99)
Havarti Plain $1.49 (elsewhere $5.49)
My children love Havarti so I did pick up a couple of these blocks!
Sausage…of all kinds!
Johnsonville Kielbasa $1.99
Johnsonville Chicken Sausage $2.99
Gourmet Chicken Sausages $2.99 (my husband likes these)
Small Cut Pasta (small bags) $0.39
Macaroni & Cheese (a brand I’ve never heard of) $0.39 (we still bought a couple)
Canned Dolmas (Stuffed Grape Leaves) $1.49
I can’t say I’ve ever seen this product, anywhere. Is it good?
Fiber One Brownies $0.99
That is a fabulous deal for this item! Even better than what you’d typically find with a sale and a coupon!
Gingerbread Man Cookie Mix $0.69
Yoplait Greek Yogurt Cups $0.50
Brown Cow Greek Yogurt Cups $0.50
Butter, 1 lb $1.99
Smuckers Jam (large jar) $1.99
Marathon Snickers Bar $0.33
Cabana Red Wine $2.99
You can always find fantastic wine at Grocery Outlet for a fraction of the price! The wine department is actually one of my favorites in the store – check it out!
Here is another wine from Argentina for just $3.99 and you’d find it elsewhere for around $9.99.
I had a special helper join me yesterday to scout out Grocery Outlet…my lil’ Duke of Deals.
And here is a look at what I bought for just under $50! This cart full of food contains lots of produce, some cheese, hummus, my favorite Kashi cereal, a few treats, my favorite dairy-free fig bars for $0.50 each!, whole wheat bread, sausage, a box of super yummy GF crackers, oatmeal, and more. Would you believe I saved about $75? And nary a coupon in sight!
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.
