Whole30 on a Budget: 7 Ways I’m Saving Money And Doing Whole30


I posted a pic of me trying to fall in love with La Croix water and asked for advice.  While I received tons of great ideas I also got a lot of questions about how to do Whole30 on a budget.

I am 15 days in and here is what I have learned about staying Whole30 compliant AND saving some money.

1.  I started shopping at  ALDI.  For produce, organic meats and organic nuts, spices, eggs etc. ALDI has had the best prices by far.  It is a little out of the way for me but I make it buy about once a week.  You could also price match ALDI at  Walmart.

2.  I still use the Buy Ahead Principle. When something you know you will use is on a great sale or/and you have a coupon stock up!  I stocked up on olive and coconut oil from  before starting. They have  great prices, frequent sales and usually Free shipping on their brand.   (By the way if you are new to Vitacost and click thru this link you’ll get a free $10 credit!)

RXBar3.  I have price alerts set up on Amazon. Compliant Larabars and RX bars are about the Only way I have survived thus far.  So I set up a price alert for when they go on any kind of sale.

4.  I menu plan like a crazy woman It is a major step up from my former minimalist planning. Now all the produce and meat that makes its way into our house is planned for, so it does not go bad before I use it.


5. I have scored some surprisingly Great deals on organic and natural meats at Target.  Who knew?  If I hit my target at just the right time they have marked down meats considerably.  Like today for example, organic grass fed beef for $4.99/lb.  It was on sale for $7.99, then they had $3 off coupons attached.

6.  I don’t buy everything organic. I buy what I can and what is on sale or close in price to non organic. If the organic alternative is not on sale or just too much I buy the best I can and don’t worry about it. 🙂

7.  I buy a lot less “stuff”.  Shopping just the outside aisles you buy a lot less other stuff. No creamer, no chips, no crackers, no cheese sticks, no yogurt, no honey, no tortillas…. you get the point. 🙂  This diet cuts out a lot of our regular items and that frees up some room in the budget.

This is how I am making Whole30 happen in our house.  If you are or have been on it what are you best money saving ideas? I would love to hear them!
