Our shopping this week was just for produce and veggies.  Normally we buy this through a co-op or in bulk, but having busy weekends means its hard to get to the farmers market.  I hit Bi-Lo and scouted out all the markdown items I could find.  I love the little red tags they put on items and can go a little crazy when I see them.

I got:

Collard Greens for $1 per bag (reg. $3)
Earthbound Farms organic Salad mixes for $1.90 (reg. $5)
Pre-cut Squash and Zucchini for $1 per lb (reg. $2 lb)
Cherry Tomatoes pints for $2 (reg. $4)
Pero Farms Little Sweet Peppers bag, $1 ea. (reg. $3)
Asparagus, $1.99 per lb (reg. $3.49)
Broccoli Bunches, $2 ea.
Grapefruit, 5 lb bag, $4
Clementines, 5 lb box, $5 ea.
Strawberries, 1 lb containers, $2 ea.

I didn’t have any extra coupons, but the prices on markdown are already so great that it’s okay.  Some of the items are “eat right away” deals.  While I can’t eat that many veggies all at the same time I can go ahead and cook up all the collards and then freeze them and blanch the asparagus to freeze.  I’m used to putting up veggies when we buy in bulk so it’s not a hassle really for the savings.

Our total for all of this plus some frozen veggies:

Total Purchase Value: $71.29
Total Spent: $38.14
Total Saved: $33.15

We didn’t need any meat this week and our pantry was stocked on pretty much everything else, so it was a rare week for us.

      At my Bi-Lo the markdowns are ready for the compost heap so I buy my produce at Aldi. I love the prices and my store has great produce because they sell so much of it.

      Jenny are there any veggies or fruit that you ONLY buy organic?
