Buying cheap organic- check out sales!

There are some grocery stores I don't normally go to, because the prices are so much higher then other stores in my area. One of my non-normal stores had a really good sale on eggs and they are right down the street from a normal stop so I decided to drop in on the way.

I went through their organic section and they had a bunch of stuff on 'manager special' for the same price as you would buy the conventional contemporary on sale. I bought a dozen boxes of organic speghetti they were discontinuing for 99¢ each, some yummy organic tea for 99¢ a box. They also had lactose free organic milk on manager special that expired in the next month for $2.19 a half gallon, again, cheaper then the conventional contemporary, they had 4 of them that won't expire for three weeks- so I have plenty of time to drink them.

So I will be adding them to my stops before I hit my normal store from now on in case they have stuff I was buying anyways on sale.

If you have normal stops that have other stores that aren't to far out of your way to make gas ofset the savings, think about dropping in and checking out their sales every once in a while.

About Me

My photo

I'm a semi crunchy stay at home wife and mama of two boys. Extend Breastfeed, Cloth diaper, Cosleep, Babywear, Homeschool, Homebirth. My sons and I have some serious health concerns (allergies, growth hormone, kidney, lung, spine, etc...). We didn't realize they were genetic (or I had) until after Trace's birth. Tristian had some big medical and possibly/probably autism related delays in early childhood but also taught himself to read at 2yrs and started on math equations at 4yrs. Trace is bit delayed across the board by about 6 months, but as he's 1yr+ behind in height... it's not very noticable ;-) Trace is very musical and hands on. With plenty of common sense, love, good doctors and faith we are doing wonderfully!

This wonderful chapter in my life of discovering the green subculture has (mostly) ended. Living green on a budget has changed from the thrill of discovery to habit. This blog remains in rememberance- with occasionally crossover posting. I hope you join me- the same green mama on a budget, in a new blog celebrating life's daily experiences- LIFE O'KAY Still lots of crafts & crunchiness- with even more sweet family moments.
