Grocery Deals Round-Up: 3/7 to 3/13

Wondering what the criteria is for my weekly grocery deals? Unless otherwise noted, they are:
  1. Limited time sale prices, not everyday regular prices.
  2. The sale price is low compared to food prices in general (meaning, I tend to list the cheapest foods. Notice that few things are more than a dollar or two per unit.)
  3. Sale price is considerably lower than regular price, or compared to prices at other stores.
  4. Basic, whole foods rather than processed/packaged foods. Whole foods are often healthier and cheaper! The idea being you could make many different things from these basic ingredients. (Occasionally I will add packaged foods when they are a really good deal, though, or if they are something that is hard to make yourself.)
  5. I bold items that are especially good deals that I am excited about!
That being said, here are the deals for this week!
