Grocery Outlet

Lately I have become a little bit obsessed with Grocery Outlet. Last night I made a last minute trip to the Salem Grocery Outlet (on D St) to try to get more of a few things I found on a recent trip.  I even found a few great markdowns (yes, even Grocery Outlet has markdowns!).  I got all of this for $45.00!  With the exception of the cheese and Kettle chips, everything was organic! I bought a few things we don’t normally buy, but they will be nice occasional treats for the kids.  If you don’t eat organic you will find that some things are even cheaper than what I purchased.

Here is a rough price list from memory.

Organic yellow and red potatoes-Marked down to 99 cents from $1.99

Big tub of organic salad mix- Marked down to $2.49 from $4.99

Kettle chips -$1.99

Athenos feta spread- Marked down to 87 cents

Dill havarti-$1.49

Organic chicken wings -$1.99 per pound and one was 50 cents off

Annies organic chocolate chip granola bars 7ct-$1.99 (6 grams of sugar per bar…not too bad)

Solana Gold organic apple sauce (apple boysenberry and apple strawberry)- $1.99 (On sale at Life Source for $3.99 I believe, and Azure last month for $3)

Country Choice organic sandwich cookies-$1.50 ($3.99 at Fred Meyer)

Annies Bunnies cheddar crackers- 25 cents a piece


Only bummer was when they would not allow me to use a Grocery Outlet coupon they emailed.  We were out of a printer for a couple weeks and Hubby hooked it up hours before my trip to the store. As I was getting into the car I saw that it expired 2 days prior. I never try to use expired coupons, but thought that since it was a store coupon for new email subscribers that they might still be able to honor it easily.  No dice.

Do you ever shop at Grocery Outlet? Their stock changes often some products are a one time thing.

I feel a bit better now that I let the cat out of the bag.  Now don’t you go clearin’ shelves on me. 🙂


-Grocery Outlet has no idea who I am.  I am just a fan of good cheap food.

  1. I have a coworker who swears by that place. She and her husband call it the “moldy food store” and of course they are joking. But there can be the most strange and random deals.

    When I was a kid my dad took us to a branch of that store in Stayton and we would purchase lots and lots of expired candy that he could use as giveaways at events. I haven’t seen prices like they used to be… like 10 cents a bag, etc. 🙂

    Your shopping deals are so inspiring!!

  2. Hi! I just stumbled upon your blog while researching Azure Standard and realized we live in the same city :)I have also been hearing about great deals at Grocery Outlet, but from people who don’t live in Salem…I had no idea that there was such great organic food for such great prices. We are on an almost non-existent budget so this makes me so excited. Thanks for sharing your purchases!

    1. Hi Mallory! How fun that you found me AND that we live in the same city! Isn’t the blog world so awesome/crazy! Grocery Outlet and Azure are the best. The last week or two I have not found too much at Grocery Outlet, but things will perk up. 🙂 You might have better luck with the Lancaster one right now (just a guess). I know shopping at both of these places will help you with your budget! I mainly do Azure for bulk purchase and sometimes some produce (I can often find other natural foods for better prices at Fred Meyer when they are on sale or when I find stuff at G.O.). Hope that helps. Feel free to email me (twinmamaloves (at) if you have questions about anything in our local area. Have you looked into Salem Harvest? It is another awesome (FREE) food resource…but growing in popularity.
      LOVE your blog! Do you have a “subscribe by email” widget? I am not sure I saw one, but I will go look again.

  3. Thanks for your reply Kari! I love all of your great ideas for getting groceries at great prices 🙂 I definitely need to check out all of those resources! Hmm..I actually don’t think that I do have a “subscribe by email” up on my blog…but looks like I need to change that! Thanks for checking out my blog as well. Fun finding someone in the same city. -Mallory

  4. Hi! I found your site from googling “Salem Blogs”. My husband, our two kids, and I are in the process of relocating to Salem from San Diego, Ca. I appreciate that you have this site set up as I have never set foot on Salem.

    1. Hey Vangie! I am so glad you found my blog! Please let me know if you need help navigating Salem in any way. We love it here and the city has so much to offer! Subscribe by email if you would like, and I will keep posting about great deals and fun things around town. Blessings on your move! It is never an easy process!
