Further to groceries. Both of our major supermarkets have 1/2 prices specials every week. I scour those specials and of there is something that I regularly buy I will purchase 2 that week. This is one way of increasing items in my stock pile.
SUCH a good tip!be sure to check to check the "best by" or "use/freeze by" dates
Doesn't this just make you crazy????the shelf price and the red tag price was the same. On closer inspection, it was not a sale tag, but a "new low price" tag, leading me to believe they've just raised the price and this will be what we should expect to pay going forward.
Nice!!!! That is a really smart way to stock up!1/2 prices specials every week
Oh, wow! I didn't know about this! I'm reading now. I'm rather lazy and just go to Aldi's ... but I have Walmart, Publix, Winn Dixie, a local supermarket, Whole Foods nearby ... and well, Family Dollar, Dollar General, Dollar Store ...If you google Price Book for groceries there are lots of hits on how to create them!
I am thrilled that those dishes found you!Went to a local Furniture/Home Decor Consignment Antique store yesterday.
Sadly - it is closing because the shopping center was sold and the rent has been tripled
The prices were already pretty decent for most things but right now everything is a minimum of 40% off with some booths as high as 75% off.
I may have picked up a few things LOL
But my BEST find??? An absolutely MASSIVE set of Christmas dishes. White with the holly leaves / berry pattern around the rim. I haven't counted the pieces yet but I know there was a tall set of dinner plates, salad plates, saucers, coffee style cups and a bunch of bowls and a couple of serving style pieces.
Guess how much???
SIX dollars. I couldn't believe it. The cashier said that everything had to go and no wants dishes anymore so they were just thrilled I would take it.
Merry Christmas to me!!!
