Earth Day is approaching, and there's no better way to celebrate being green than by saving some green at Grocery Outlet Bargain Market! With such low prices, you might think that Grocery Outlet only sells thrift store, mass-market brand canned goods, not higher-end, all-natural and organic brands. But Grocery Outlet has a whole aisle dedicated to organic foods! I first discovered this all-important fact thanks to my friend Dena, who is an all-natural, organic foods purist -- a regular Grocery Outlet shopper!
To celebrate Earth Day, I went on an eco-friendly shopping trip to Grocery Outlet and challenged myself to find deals on nothing but organic foods. You could barely call it a challenge; in no time at all I filled my cart with $50 worth of organic goodies ($51.69, to be exact), saving almost half off regular prices in the process! The 3 boxes of CLIF Kid snacks and 3 Kashi pizzas would have easily cost $50 at any other place.
This box of CLIF Kid Full Moon Brownie ZBars is the perfect example of how Grocery Outlet can keep their prices so low. Notice the Halloween-themed packaging -- retailers don't want to sell these after October 31, so Grocery Outlet can get them at a super cheap price. Do I care that there are werewolves and witches on the wrapper? Heck, no! Normally I buy these for about $1 each. You can also buy them in bulk for for about $16 or $17 for a pack of 18. I've seen them on sale for about $12 -- but I paid $10.47 at Grocery Outlet.
Again, it's worth noting that these are well-known organic brands. Here are more natural or organic brands I saw at my local Grocery Outlet Bargain Market:
Wolfgang Puck's Organic
Annie Chun's All Natural Asian Cuisine
The stock at every Grocery Outlet store is different, and it changes frequently, so you never know which brands you are going to find -- but the one thing you can be sure of is the great brands and great prices. Check out the eco-frugal deals at your local Grocery Outlet ASAP!
