I popped by my local Federal Way Grocery Outlet store yesterday to see if I could scout out some good deals for you! As a reminder, each Grocery Outlet store is independently owned and operated, which means the selection and pricing may vary a bit from store to store.
After I’ve shared the deals with you, I want to explain a bit about the special Independence from Hunger campaign Grocery Outlet is running this month. So read on!
Through today only (7/8), get 2 lbs of Grapes for $2.99! They had green as well.
Have you ever checked out Grocery Outlet for first aid supplies? I often find amazing deals here! In fact, I recently went through our first aid/medicine supply and made a list of items we needed. I was able to pick up a few things at Grocery Outlet to add to our stash to have on hand “just in case.”
Hair Oils (all kinds!) just $4.99 each. Some (such as the Argan oil) will save you a killing on what you’d pay elsewhere.
Cherry tomatoes (colorful ones!) just $1.99 per package. I also found packages of regular toms for $1.50 each.
If you ever need some basic spices, you can count on finding canisters for about $0.99 at Grocery Outlet. I still generally prefer buying mine in bulk, but this is not a bad way to go if you’re in a pinch. I also noticed they had a few things I’ve not seen in bulk before, too.
Another option for saving on spices (and finding different things!) is checking out the Hispanic spice section. I found dried cumin seed, chamomile, peppers, and more. Many bags were priced at just $0.79 each.
Organic milled flax seeds: $2.99.
Pretty good price for Deluxe Mac & Cheese – just $0.99 per box. I suspect the discount is due to the special labels on this box. Sometimes items end up at Grocery Outlet just because of a packaging change!
Crosse & Blackwell Major Grey Chutney: $1.99. This was running close to dates, but is such a great price! One of my favorite freezer recipes uses chutney and chicken – you could just as well prep and freeze it and then not worry about the expiration!
No trip to Grocery Outlet would be complete without a stop to the wine department! As usual, I found beautiful wines for a fraction of the cost you’d pay elsewhere. Here’s a Pinot from the Napa Valley for just $4.99 (elsewhere, you’d pay $14.99 for the same bottle).
I love these “light” wines for just $1.99 each! I believe they have 90 calories a serving, so great for those who enjoy wine, but not the high calories. I had one of these before and it was pretty decent. Hard to beat $1.99 for a bottle of wine, too!
Independence from Hunger
I also wanted to mention that Grocery Outlet is running their 4th annual Independence from Hunger drive this month. The goal is to raise awareness about the great need to support local food banks and people in our community who are struggling to put food on the table.
There are a few ways you can help!
- Look for specially marked items at your Grocery Outlet store. These are items that are much needed by local food banks. Consider picking up a couple to donate.
- Make a cash donation at the register. Just let your cashier know you’d like to donate towards the Independence from Hunger drive.
- Pick up the special “Independence from Hunger” brochure in stores. I found these at the end of the check out aisle at my store yesterday. The brochure contains information about how to get involved in fighting against hunger in our community as well as low-cost recipes you can make your family.
- Consider participating in the “$4 daily challenge.” How frugally can you feed your family? Could you do so for just $4 per day? Consider taking the challenge for a few days or a week! You can get started with these easy recipes at Grocery Outlet.com.
