Purchasing store brand organic food is a wallet friendly way to save on your healthy foods grocery bill. Many stores across the county have realized they need to offer a high quality organic alternative to the mainstream branded products. Such items are significantly cheaper and just as tasty as the big brand names.
My preferred grocery store is Kroger which carries their own line called Private Selections. If I don’t have a coupon for another brand, I’ll most likely make these choices. I have yet run into a product in which I haven’t been 100% satisfied. In my particular Kroger store they have a “Healthy and Natural Food Market”, which is mainly a small area that contains more “known” health food/organic products. Though, not all of the store’s products are located there. Be on the lookout for organic alternatives mingling with conventional items…especially the store brands. For example, the organic baking supplies I use are located in the baking aisle, right along side of the other flours and sugars.
Are you familiar with your grocery store’s own organic brand of products? Next time, be on the lookout for them…especially the ones on sale. Here is a list of some of the more commonly known stores across the country with their organic brand names:
- Kroger/King Sooper: Private Selections
- Albertson’s/Jewel: Wild Harvest
- Whole Foods: 365 Organic Everyday Value
- Harris Teeter: Harris Teeter Naturals
- Safeway: O Organics
- Meijer: Meijer Organics
- Publix: GreenWise
- Super Target: Archer Farms
- Food Giant: Nature’s Promise
- Food Lion: Nature’s Place
