Super Savings Saturday: Dillon’s shopping trip + free fruit!

I planned to do more grocery shopping this week, but it was just one of those weeks where life trumped the plans and a lot of things went undone. So we revised our menu plan a bit and ate from the freezer and pantry.

I did end up stopping by Dillon’s yesterday to get a few deals in their Mega Event:

Today’s Shopping Trips: Aldi and the health food store

Today, Kaitlynn and I had a little outing to the health food store and Aldi. I wasn’t planning to go to the health food store since I’d already gone on Tuesday, but Kaitlynn loves to go there (they have little children’s carts and samples!) and asked if we could please go, so we stopped by. And I was so glad I did because I found some great deals!

Yesterday’s Shopping Trip: The health food store

I stopped by the health food store after a lunch date with my husband yesterday. I needed to get some more turbinado and just decided to buy it at the health food store, even though it’s more expensive, since a trip to the bulk foods store was not in the schedule this week.

I was excited to find some produce markdowns while I was there! And I also picked up a few cups of steel cut oats. Well, they said “Steel Cut Oat Groats”. Is that what I’m looking for, or did I get the totally wrong thing? (Yes, I’m clueless about steel cut oats, can you tell?!)

Here’s a price breakdown:

2 bags of grapefruit — marked down to $0.99 each

2 bags of organic pears — marked down to $0.99 each

1 tub of yogurt — marked down to $1.99

Organic Steel Cut Oat Groats ($1.29/lb.) — $0.88

Organic Turbinado — $5.19

Total spent: $12.90

The pears were getting pretty close to past their prime, but I couldn’t pass them up at $0.99 per bag for organic pears. I’m making pear sauce in crockpot with them today. Yum!
