Grocery Outlet

I had heard Meredith talk about salvage grocery stores but have never encountered one before. I even went looking to e if they are in this area, hidden gems waiting to be discovered, but alas they are not.

What I have discovered is that we have something just as good, or maybe even better. We have a grocery outlet! Amelia's Grocery Outlet sells grocery overstocks from NAME BRAND manufacturers at truly rock bottom prices. I went for the first time yesterday and walked out with a cart full of name brands like Tropicana, Jenny-O, Pillsbury, Cascadia Farms, Ore-Ida, Betty Crocker for$44.00. They had a HUGE selection of organic food which really impressed me.

Although it appears that Amelia's is a local chain, I am sure that they are not the only chain out there, so it is worth looking around to see if there is one in your area.

Question...where do you do most of your grocery shopping? or is it all done a discount markets?

The vast majority of my marketing id done at a regular supermarket. I have found one in this area (Giant) that has consistently low prices and good sales on things that we use.

I do supplement by going to the produce outlet, Amelia's, and Trader Joes.

We also have a membership to a wholesale club and buy things like TP, dog food, dog treats, baking needs there.

I could probably do my marketing by going to lost of different discount stores,but I don;t really have the time to run around every month.

I discovered organic soy milk at my "salvage" store. $1 a quart which is about $2 a gallon cheaper than Walmart :)

Any idea how I would find a "salvage" type grocery store in my area? I would love to check one out!
