I love all the markdowns you found. Great job!

I think it's great how you are trying to go more organic. It's inspiring. I emailed Morton's salt company and gave them a compliment and asked for coupons, they sent me a coupon in the mail for ANY of they price limit! I got a huge (4.00 value) box of kosher salt for FREE.

I have been keeping an eye out for the markdowns on the antibiotic-free meat. I will have to look again!
I wanted to let you know that Costco is starting to carry alot of organic products. Here are some of the ones I've found:
organic raisins $6.99 for 4 pounds, which comes to $1.75/pound.
organic sugar $7.99 for 10 pounds
organic frozen green beans $5.99 for 5 pounds.
I think those are really good prices. : )
I know they carry other organic things too, like organic chicken broth, organic frozen peas, etc.

Thanks everyone!

Lisa, thanks so much for the update on Costco. We have a Costco membership card too but don't shop there often. Let us know the price for Pacific Organic Broth next time you go :)

If I remember correctly (and I can double check next time I go), the Pacific Organic Broth was just under $10 for 6.

Today I was at Costco and checked the organic chicken broth for you. It's $9.95 for 6, which comes out to $1.66 each.
