Whole Foods Shopping 101

Thank you The Thrifty Mama for posting about how to shop and save at Whole Foods for us "newbies"!
Our nearest Whole Foods store is 45 minutes away so I want to make sure I plan my trips well before I go there. Shopping at Whole Foods used to seem so expensive for our budget but I'm willing to give it another try. As I wasn't prepared to can and preserve this year, I'll needed to find a good alternative to the farmer's market's for the winter months and Whole Foods may be my best option.

The Thrifty Mama shares some great tips on how to find and use their in-store coupons. She's also going to post their weekly deals on her website. Just this week she posted that Organic Valley Milk was $1.59 per half gallon. Be sure to add her site to your reading list for these updates!

When I make my next trip to Whole Foods I'll share with you how it went. I am nervous to use their coupons as I'm afraid I might be the only one in the store using them. Of course, our local Whole Foods is in the most affluent area in the city and I'm sure there won't be many ladies like me using coupons. More for me I guess? Wish me luck!

  1. I think you're gonna love it there. It is a wee bit intimidating at first because they are usually in posh neighborhoods and there are lots of fancy schmancy overpriced foods. BUT---there are tons of really reasonable items there and their store coupons combined with manufacturer coupons (have you signed up for Mambo Sprouts coups?) make some great bargains.

    I like your blog.
