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!

  4. Coupon clipping is one of the most commonly used forms of saving money. From clipping coupons out of the local newspaper to getting coupons from your favorite retailer as a reward for being a customer Vipon
