First off, in you’re in the West Island of Montreal this weekend, go check out the new Tau Aliments Naturels store. They’ve got a lot of good Grand Opening deals, unfortunately the special flyer isn’t available on their site.
However, I can tell you that Natur-a soymilk is 99¢ each until April 3rd, and they had tons of cases went I visited yesterday afternoon.
This is an amazing price for soymilk since the cheapest you can find is around $1.69, when it’s on sale. A huge plus about Natur-a is that the soybeans are non-GMO and grown on certified organic farms in Quebec and Ontario. So I took the opportunity to stock up on two cases; 12 unsweetened, 6 original, 5 chocolate and 1 cappuccino. That last one is a new flavour and it’s pretty good, though a tad too sweet for my tastes. So I added a splash of regular President’s Choice soymilk and it was better.
You may think that 24 cartons of soymilk is a bit much but I must admit that I have a store of about 12 PC-brand cartons already in my pantry. I’m the type of person who stocks up when food items are cheap. So, even if I look crazy with multiples of the same item in my shopping cart to some people (which I really don’t give a crap about) it’s really handy to just be able to reach into a cupboard and grab whatever I want. Especially since I’m no longer able to simply walk to the grocery store anymore, not like in the city.
And, in terms of emergency preparedness, it’s good to have shelf-stable goods (that you’ll actually eat) in the house.

Other things purchased: 4 jars of organic peanut butter ($2.99 ea), a tub of VEGA food supplement ($59), an economy-zied bag of Nature’s Path rice crispies ($6), 2 packages of végé paté and 2 packs of Yves ground round (got 2 packs of tenders strips free!).
Oh, and did I mention that Tau has got a stack of “$5 off a purchase of $50″ coupons at the almond milk demo table? Used one for the VEGA and another for the rest of the stuff :)
