Super Savings Saturday-65+ items, zero coupons, $40


I love coupons, but can't seem to find the time to clip and organize them. Instead, I use a little different method of saving on groceries...I go to salvage grocery stores!

Here's my latest purchases, from just 2 stores:

  • 1/2 gallon of 100% apple juice, no sugar added
  • Motts juice blend (apple and carrot)
  • 2 cans skintamate shave gel
  • 1 can edge shave gel
  • 1 large box of ice cream salt
  • 6 quaker rice snacks full size bags
  • 4 cans of organic beans
  • 13 cans of Hansens Diet Soda
  • 2 jars (2 pounds each) of organic applesauce
  • 2 large jars of organic, natural no sugar added peanut butter
  • 12 boxes of whole grain macaroni and cheese
  • 3 boxes of stovetop stuffing
  • 4 cans of dole sliced  pineapple
  • 2 large cans of chopped pineapple
  • 2 boxes of organic fruit strips
  • 3 packages of panko bread crumbs
  • 2 bottles Italian dressing
  • 1 tub of slimfast drink mix
  • 2 bottles of barbecue sauce
  • 2 big bags of organic white cheddar popcorn
  • 1 yard of bias tape
  • 1 package of green pipe cleaners
  • 1 package of semi sweet chocolate chips
The bold items are the organic, or semi-healthier purchases, just in case you thought I might just pick up junky packaged food at these stores :0)

Do you have any non-coupon grocery saving tips?

  1. What is a salvage grocery store?
    Here, we have a store that buys other stores' leftovers/overstocks. They especially carry many things from Costco - like a damaged box of 12 with one missing doesn't sell at Costco but this store marks it WAY down and sells the 11 left seperately. We get a lot of great deals there. Also, the 99cents Only stores in our area have some great finds and even sell good produce now. It's like shopping at a garage sale or thrift store, though - you gotta be able to tell the good deals from the bad ones.

  2. @kamariden It sounds like the store you are speaking of is a salvage grocery store. It is a store that buys items that other stores have to salvage out, due to: damaged packaging, improper labeling (upside down, double printing, missing exp. dates), discontinued, customer returns. I have bought some items that are expired (cake mix 3/$.99) but the packages are still sealed, and the mix is perfectly fine. Grocery Outlet is the largest, most well known salvage grocery store I've heard of. I need to make more stops at the Dollar Tree and 99 cents store, I see a lot of people posting great deals from those places!
