This morning, I ran out of my house without eating breakfast. I know, I know. My mother would be terribly upset with me. Thankfully, I work at the Whole Foods Central office, located just above our flagship store in Austin, TX on Lamar Street. Woo, not only did I manage to scrap together a delicious breakfast for under $5 (vegan breakfast tacos and organic OJ!), but since Paige is out, I also got to pick this week's The Whole Deal™ winner!This week's tip comes to us from Jeanne Delagardelle:
“Once a week my husband shops at the Whole Foods near our home. He picks up everything we need for the week, and if a staple or non-perishable is on sale he really loads up. And about two or three times per week I walk to the Whole Foods that is about six blocks from my workplace. I pick up anything that he may have forgotten plus I get to take my time in the Whole Body aisles. I get some exercise and I get to do some good old-fashioned browsing. I love that Whole Foods puts out so many testers of the skin care products that they carry.”
Great teamwork, Jeanne and yes - we are happy to let our guests test out our products before buying, whether it's food or body care - all you have to do is ask.
