Frugal Foodie Friday: Every week I receive at least one email that includes something similar to the following phrase, “I live in a small town so I don’t have access to many specialty foods.” My response every single time, “get online people!” I live in a rural area too, but I have embraced online ordering to the full extent. Not only can you have just about every product imaginable shipped right to your doorstep, but you can also usually get it even cheaper than in stores!
Both my husband and I stalk countless online stores to find the best deals, but I always end up ordering from Amazon at least once a month. They are my go-to for finding great deals on pantry items. I have Nutiva Coconut Oil, Let’s Do Organic Coconut, Coombs Organic Maple Syrup, Ambrosia Raw Unfiltered Honey, and Good Earth Tea all on my Amazon Subscribe & Save (for an additional 15% off plus free shipping!).
In addition to these regulars, I keep an eye on Amazon’s Monthly Special Offers. Some months are duds, but this month they are prepping with back to school items, and there are some fantastic picks. These are my favorite dairy-free* (and in most cases gluten-free and vegan) deals of the month:
Cereals & Bars
There are of course many more items on sale right now. For all of the current grocery deals, see the Amazon Sales & Special Offers Section.
Just a warning, Amazon does sell out on some of the sale items as the month progresses. They restock, but not always in time for the special offers. So I usually try to purchase early in the month when I see a deal I want.
For more online stores that sell dairy-free and specialty food products, see our list of Online Retailers.
*note that a few select flavors of some of the brands may not be dairy-free, read the ingredients!
