I know what you’re thinking. Uh why is the 99 ¢ only store name on your blog post title? And why is it associated with eating healthy? Eww you buy food at the 99 cents store?! Why – yes. Yes I do!
I was always skeptical to purchase anything related to food at these discount stores but one day while searching for some inexpensive crafty items, I decided to walk past their refrigerated section. To my surprise, they had some of the same exact items (even brand names) I frequently purchase at our local grocery store for nearly a fraction of the price! Why on earth would I want to pass up on a better deal? I’d be foolish to do so. So here’s a few items I found these past couple of weeks.
Per the 99 cents only site, here’s how they are able to offer some of the exact same products you purchase at your local grocery store for nearly a fraction of the cost.
“Our buyers work with hundreds of suppliers from all around the world- that’s a lot of products! Often times retailers will over-order products and have a large amount of excess inventory. Our buyers search around the globe for such retailers, and buy products from their surplus inventory. This means that 99 Cents Only shoppers are buying the same high quality products found in other stores, but for a much better price!” — 99 ¢ Only Store Site

The 99 Cents Only stores are headquartered in California and have over 320 stores in California, Arizona, Nevada and Texas. If you live in either one of these states and have a store near you, be sure to check out their products before you head out to your local grocery store. You just might find some great deals on organic goods or even healthy treats for the whole family at just under a buck!
Cheers to eating healthy on a few dimes!
