Super Savings Saturday: Our Dillon’s and Health Food Store shopping trips


This week I made a quick trip to the health food store and to Dillon’s and purchased the above-pictured items, many of which were mark-downs.

After coupons, we spent $34.97 for everything shown and we’re well-stocked up on frozen veggies for a few weeks!

  • Were your frozen vegetables 2/$1 too? That was a great deal!!! I got a great deal on fruits and vegetables this week. I have friends who own a produce stand and I paid $7 and got a box of oranges, a box of pears and bunches of banana’s and tomatoes and a couple bunches of spinach

    What will you do with all the limes?

    Money Saving Mom here: Glad you asked! I’m planning to use them for fresh limemade. My family thinks it’s the best thing ever. And while it’s not exactly the season for it, I don’t think they’ll complain! 🙂

  • Courtney says:

    You can also freeze lime zest and lime juice ice cubes for future cooking/baking. That’s what I did last time limes were on sale 🙂

  • Beth Farnsworth says:

    what time of the day do you do your shopping to always find such great specials/markdowns?

    Money Saving Mom here: I’ve just shopped at our local stores for long enough that I’ve figured out when they usually do their markdowns so I try to shop then. Every store is different so I recommend just trying different times and days or asking when they typically do their mark-downs.

    After running all over town to get the Thanksgiving deals at supermarkets, and having some difficulties, I realize what really has my heart. I have been on such a budget lately, that I am making an idol of frugality. (I am only speaking for myself and admire Crystal and the commentators here). It really has become a problem for ME. How did I know? When the deal doesn’t work out at the store I get angry with myself, I get anxious when I can’t get out to get the deals, and I am spending too much time pridefully shopping the deals to stretch the budget (even if I give the things away). God is my provision and I wasn’t honoring that, nor seeking His kingdom first. Like other good things in life, it had become unbalanced and it held a bigger place in my heart than it should have.

  • Ellen says:

    Wow, those Rudi Organic buns were a great buy! I just emailed the company & asked for coupons – they sent me several FYI.

  • Rose says:

    We just moved out in the country, far away from any decent grocery stores. I’m having to learn to shop less and make the most of a weekly or bi-weekly trip to a larger town with a Kroger and the drugstores. I didn’t find any outstanding deals this week, but I’m getting the hang of it and just started blogging about it to help other women that I’ve met in this small rural community learn to save. I love your blog, Crystal…you continue to be an inspiration.

  • Ann says:

    Just wondering what health food store you shop at and are there any tips for finding the markdowns and deals?
    I’ve been overwhelmed when I visit whole foods and have never seen any great markdowns.

    Money Saving Mom here: The health food store I shop at is a local store only unfortunately. Whole Foods Market doesn’t really do mark-downs, as far as I know. But you could always ask them.

  • Angela says:

    I just want to say how awesome you are to do this every week!! I am always also excited to see the amount of healthy items you’re able to snag.

    Keep on keepin’ on!

  • I love your blog. I am just starting a blog of my own to try to help colleg students save money. You are such an inspiration to me. I have been married for almost a year, and my husband and I are hoping to be accepted to vet school this next year. Thanks to your story and couponing savings, we are setting a goal to get through vet school debt free. Thanks for all your help and pointers!
