Shop at Whole Foods on a Budget
Even as the demand for organic food in Austin grows, it doesn’t mean that our grocery budget should, too. You probably don’t know it, but you can still shop on a budget at Whole Foods, one of the biggest producers of organic products in Austin.
While not all items at Whole Foods can be had for a bargain, certain products do come out cheaper. Organic food may be more expensive than grocery-bought produce, but with some smart shopping tips, you’ll find that you can actually save more money in the long run.
For one thing, did you know that Whole Foods offers coupons? Whole Foods’ coupons run the gamut from produce to organic products, which you can find on their own money saving circular The Whole Deal and online.
The Whole Deal not only offers coupons, it also runs features like budget friendly recipes and money saving tips - stuff that would actually help you eat organic for the same cost as packaged meals or less.
Thursdays are good days to shop on a budget at Whole Foods - specials start on Thursday mornings and these are not available online, so you need to visit your local store to find out the specials for the day. The Thursday specials can run from a few days to a few weeks, and can even include “managers specials” on top of the weekly special.
