Super Savings Sunday!

Lots of deal hunting this week! I know it comes to question if I'm really saving by shopping at multiple stores with gas prices today. The answer for me is YES! We happen to live in an area with not only a large variety of stores, but multiple same store locations. So I can easily plan my shopping around other errands or what part of town I'm in.

Picked up a few remaining items from Earth Fare - spent $12.22 oop. But I think Whole Foods maybe the way to go for us. In comparing the two, I noticed Whole Foods offers alot more store brand products. Which is great when you're shopping for organics on a budget! Plus I felt like I just got more bang for my buck at Whole Foods, even if it is ALWAYS crowded. I did pick up the new Mambo Sprouts booklet, so that was a plus!
