Super Savings Saturday: 25 pounds of wheat!

Some friends were heading to the bulk foods stores and graciously picked up 25 pounds of wheat for me while they were there. I’m so thankful to have wheat to grind again. I bought one bag of whole-wheat flour recently and we noticed that none of our baked goods tasted as good with it. Freshly-ground whole-wheat flour just can’t be beat!

The wheat was a little over $19 for 25 pounds. It’s less expensive from Azure Standard, but they were all out of wheat when the truck came last month. I’m planning to order a 50-pound bag from Azure soon. In the mean time, I’m just happy to have wheat to grind again!

My mom also gave me some Lundberg Brown Rice that she got clearanced and we bought some basics at Aldi again this week: bread, peanut butter, fruit, vegetables, and cheese. Plus, we also bought some farm-fresh eggs from my brother.

Super Savings Saturday: My Azure Standard order + a quick health food store shopping trip

So, I’m pretty much in love with Azure Standard. I’d heard about it for a long time from my friend, Laura from Heavenly Homemakers. However, I’m a little chicken when it comes to trying new things–especially things that require forking out a monetary investment.

However, my local friend, Angie, researched out how it all works and what the best deals were, and she held my hand through the whole process. She even let me order with her so that I didn’t have to worry about the $50 minimum (though I actually ending up ordering a little over $50 when it was all said and done). And then we split the 20-pound box of apples.

I am so glad I took the plunge to try something new. Not only was it really quite simple and uncomplicated to order and pick up our order from the delivery truck, but I am so happy with what I ended up buying.

Azure Standard Order

5 lbs. of organic Azure Farm popcorn — $4.95

1 gallon bulk raw clover honey — $30.40

10 pounds organic Akane apples — $9.50

10 pounds organic rolled oats — $4.90 each

I also stopped at the health food store today and bought some organic bananas that were marked down to $0.39 per pound and some eggs that were marked down to $0.99 per dozen.

Earlier this week, Jesse stopped by Dillon’s and Aldi for me and bought lettuce, cilantro, cheese, honey, flour, milk, peanut butter, chocolate chips, tortillas, black beans, and lemons/limes. In the hubbub of preparing for the garage sale, I didn’t get a picture taken. He spent a little over $22 total.

Super Savings Saturday: No shopping in order to save for my Azure Standard order

I didn’t do any grocery shopping at all this week. We had plenty on hand in the freezer, refrigerator, and pantry to tide us over until this coming week (you can see what we ate this week here).

Instead, I saved my grocery money to put towards my very first Azure Standard order. I’m so excited about ordering some more food in bulk and can’t wait for my order to come in next week. (And yes, I promise I’ll post pictures and show you what I got when it comes in!)

Super Savings Saturday: Health Food Store, Dillon’s, Aldi, Walmart, Dollar Tree, Target

I think I may have set some sort of record in my grocery shopping today. I went to six stores–which is very out of character since I rarely go to more than three at a time! However, I only had a short to-do list today and I got it done right after lunch. So my husband sent me out to go shopping on my own and told me to just take my time and enjoy myself. So I did!

Each of the stores ended up being out of some of the things I was hoping to buy, but I was still able to get some great deals. Here are the groceries I ended up buying:

And here are the different store transaction details:

Health Food Store Shopping Trip:

5 cantaloupe marked down to $0.59 each (I gave one to a friend whom I ran into at Dillon’s, so there are only 4 pictured.)
Organic bananas marked down to $0.39 per pound (I’ll freeze these for smoothies.)
4 boxes of Rice Milk marked down to $0.99 each
1 box alphabet noodles (for alphabet mac & cheese that we’re making for a school project)

Total with tax: $11.71 (I can’t seem to find my receipt, but I’m pretty certain this is what the total was.)

Aldi Shopping Trip

2 packages of Multi-colored peppers — $3.18

I stopped by Dollar Tree hoping to find some Nature’s Own bread. They were all out, but I picked up some fun activities for the children to do this week and for when we travel to Dallas later in the week.
