I ended up not using any coupons this week, but I got some great deals by shopping the markdowns. Here were my grocery purchases:

Dollar store deals for the week included lots of organic veggies!
Do you plan not to use coupons some weeks?
I am always impressed to see all of the mark downs that you are able to get, they are very rare around here for groceries.
After seeing your Aldi post earlier this week, I was so excited that you paid $1.79 (I think for OJ). Well, I went to ours in South Florida and it was still $2.39, which makes it 10 cents cheaper at Target….I had no idea that there could be so much of a price difference, but I know that our Publix and sometimes Target prices are above the national average for some reason.
I really did well on my grocery budget last week, coming in at $42 for a family of 5 and saving $132).
Tonight I just went shopping for this week’s cycle at Publix, and I bought $130 worth of products for $20. I am exhausted though, because my boys decided they wanted to walk to the beach today (about 6 miles away), and then we added 1-2 miles in park exploration on the way….My husband picked us up at the beach at 6 p.m., and I ran into Publix on our way home, because I had several coupons that expired today.

I have tried to submit my link twice today, but it’s not working with the new format. Not sure what I’m doing wrong…
But here’s my link:
A good week of saving money in rural Wisconsin!
I’m wondering the same thing…I’ve never seen mark-downs at our “health food” stores: Whole Foods, Mom’s Organic Market, and Trader Joes, and I haven’t seen any other stores, other than vitamin-type stores. I don’t see “mark-downs” at the regular groceries, either. I’m in Maryland.
No coupons for me either. Thank goodness for sales and markdowns!
Is the health food store you find great deals at Whole Foods? If not, does anyone know if Whole Foods ever has clearance/sale items?
The organic turbinado you can buy on Amazon for $38 and change for a 12 pack (with SNS). I don’t know how much you pay at the bulk store, but this is definitely cheaper than your health food store. Might be worth looking into (unless you don’t want that much sugar in your house at one time! 🙂 ).
I’m so jealous of that health food store of yours!
