Do you shop at the Sunflower Market? I find they are like a Vitamin Cottage/King Soopers/Whole Foods mix. Wednesday's are double ad day where last weeks and this weeks sales are good. Also keep up with the King Soopers specials.

Whole Foods and Safeway are the most expensive there.

The farmers markets will be starting soon, check to see if hitting the one in Golden might get better prices if the Boulder ones seem to be marking them up for the area.
Ding! Shop the Sunflower ad online and plan meals with it and then go shopping on double ad Weds. We do get a weeks worth of food for around $80 for a family of six, including food for 4 packed lunches each day and about 10 lbs of organic produce a week...I think most weeks we save almost as much as we spend by shopping the ads.

Good luck!
