My latest Grocery Outlet finds, plus enter to win a $25 gift card (2 winners)


I stopped into my local Grocery Outlet yesterday. My main mission was orange and red bell peppers. We’ve been on a major pepper kick around here and I knew I’d find them for under $1 . . .$0.99 to be exact.

I started with the peppers and made my way through the store finding all sorts of other treasures. It’s how Grocery Outlet works – you look for treasures.

Here’s what I finally ended up getting:

Red and orange peppers – $0.99 each

Sweet Mini peppers, 3 lb bag - $3.99

Asparagus - $2.99 a bundle

Organic Cherry Tomatoes - $1.99 each
*Great price for organic!*

Welch’s grapes, 2 lbs - $2.99

Horizon Organic Tuberz organic yogurt, 8 ct - $1.49
*Fantastic price*

Toy Story Kellogs fruit snacks - $1.49

Oscar Mayer hot dogs - $1.49
*Great price!*

Then I sort of lost all control in the oral care section. :) My kids needed toothbrushes and they had 2-packs of Star Wars toothbrushes for $0.99 – that’s just $0.49 cents each for fancy ones! I bought two packs for my son. Then I spotted a 3-pack of Angry bird brushes for $1.99 – yep, grabbed those too. I knew I needed something for my daughter, so I snagged an electric Barbie toothbrush for $2.99 – even has the batteries. Our teeth will be squeaky clean for many weeks to come – thank you Grocery Outlet! (and p.s. they have Tom’s of Maine toothpaste at my local store! I would have picked some up, but we have plenty in the hall closet right now).

And finally – my present to myself – PAPER PLATES for $2.99! Cheaper than a latte and I’ll enjoy this luxury for many days to come. I don’t want any lectures about the environment, you’d be preaching to the girl who personally washed the reusable plates she used at her own wedding, okay?  I did this because I want a break from lunch dishes for a little bit. Cooking three healthy meals at home is awesome, but I’m a little bit OVER the pile of dishes that stacks up before noon. So I’m giving myself a break and I won’t feel guilty . Besides, they’re compostable. :) Today at lunch my daughter says, “New plates, mamma!” and I said yes, with a very big smile.

Grocery Outlet is a great place to go if you’re planning a summer gathering! They have the best gourmet cheese and cracker prices ever. Fancy hummus, spreads and appetizer-friendly foods. It’s where I always go when I’m hosting a part-tay.
