Grocery Geek Presents: Fresh Produce for Cheap

Posted By Jessica Fisher On August 14, 2010 @ 1:23 am In Grocery Geek | 6 Comments

[4]Last weekend I cooked up a bunch of breakfasts to store in the freezer [5] and I lately also made a bunch of marinated meats and enchiladas. So, as far as shopping is concerned, I really only need to focus on fresh produce and dairy and keep an eye out for good deals on pantry staples [6].

This past week, me and six kids ventured into our local health food store for some fantastic prices on fresh fruits and veggies. Crazy to take such a big group into a store on double ad day [7], but it was double ad day! The sales were great and we worked it in between a trip to the library and lunch with FishPapa.

[8]Here’s what we got:
clearance bread – $0.99
oats – $0.50/lb
brown rice – $0.99//lb
fruit leather – 3/$1
broccoli crowns – $0.49/lb
carrots – $0.59/lb
melons – $0.49 each
apples – $0.99/lb
tomatoes – $0.49/lb
grapes – $0.88/lb
blueberries (not pictured) – $1.69/18 oz
onions – $0.49/lb
bell peppers – $0.99/lb
avocados – $0.49 each
bananas – $0.49/lb
organic tea – $3.00
jalapenos – $1.69/lb
mushrooms – $2.49/lb

All told I spent $45.49, having spent about $350 for our month with the freezer packed to the gills.

What kind of good deals are you finding in your neck of the woods?
