Cheapest Nuts Online? And other money saving Paleo secrets?

I know $10 for a pound of walnuts is probably a relatively good deal, but are any of you getting pistachios, walnuts, and pecans online for good deals? Of course I'm looking for dry roasted/raw and no salt. Anybody have any secrets they want to share? About anything related to saving money on Paleo?

For my tip, search Amazon.com for "Mr. Z Beef Jerky." It's a newer company that is using grassfed beef. The original flavor is like $14+shipping for 12 individually wrapped 1 oz packages.

10 bucks a pound is very high and not a good sustainable value to eat on a regular basis.

I can't buy on line and pay high shipping / processing costs, when in most cases, I can find local(say within 100 miles, then buy/drive once and stock up) or make yourself.

Sam's Club carries the Diamond brand of Walnuts and Almonds, 3lb bags are 10-12 bucks, appx.

IMHO, there are better values in foods then nuts, but they are a nice change.

Are there Aldi stores in NC? Because they're the cheapest sources of nuts for me.

Although Sam's Club is starting to look tempting. They have these artificially sweetened cocoa-roasted almonds...you know, for cheat days.

Re: Cheapest Nuts Online? And other money saving Paleo secrets?

The absolute most expensive nuts online (WFS):

http://www.senate.gov/

http://www.house.gov/



I have gotten milled almonds and almond butter from these guys (wfs)...

http://www.california-almonds.com/

Good quality, excellent service, prices are good too.
