First off, I’d like to just note that I recently began working at Sprouts. It’s been a little hectic and very overwhelming, but I’m finally starting to feel more comfortable in my role. Since I love doing hauls and I need to force myself to be a little more accountable for my spending, I’ve decided that I’ll continue to post them on Instagram, but give a little more detail here!
Sprouts Team Members receive a 15% discount and we are also able to access special coupons through the mobile app. Because this is a haul I did, I’m including both in my total. And, of course, the items I’ve purchased are bought with my own money. I am in no way being compensated by Sprouts for any hauls.
Pre-discount/coupon total: $72.01
Out of pocket total: $46.45
Final total: $32.26
Total savings: $39.75 (55.2%)
My out of pocket total was $46.45 including all coupons and my Work Perks (team member discount). Ibotta discounts totaled $12.80 and I used my American Express card for 3% cash back on groceries, which brings my total down to $32.26.

In addition to the above listed rebates, I also hit the October Level 1 bonus ($.50) and the “Easy Earnings” $2 bonus, which bumped my Ibotta earnings up to $12.80 total.
I have been on a mission to overstock my pantry and freezer so I can begin to slow down on buying groceries, but to be honest, it’s been difficult. Since I’m part of a brand new, very busy store, we’ve been racking up a lot of overtime and I haven’t really had the opportunity to cook. I usually wind up snacking or making the easiest thing that can pass for a meal, which isn’t the best for my budget! Oh well, there’s always next time!
