Salvage store!

  Made a great discovery ... there's a salvage/bent&dent type store in my city!.
  Yeah, I really should get a hobby.  But this is good news because the nearest salvage store
 is about a two hour drive away.
    So, off we went.

    It's a medium-size store ... apparently it is owned by the folks who also own a local restaurant, which explains the industrial-size prepared foods in the freezers.  They offered a number of gluten-free and organic items, too. I bought some vegan cheese ... which is interesting ...
        As for the rest ... many of the items came from the supermarket chain that has several locations in town. Unfortunately, I saw many of the same items that I'd purchased recently ... on sale ... at the store.

      The best deals ended up being snack-type items.  We bought several bags of chips ... most will go into DH's work lunches, along with a few other snacks, plus a large box of dryer sheets.   (I noticed the same thing in my last round of shopping ... snacks, prepared cereals and the like  were going at rock-bottom prices, while the "real food" prices were pretty close to retail.)

     But, like any salvage store, the bargains change frequently.  So it's definitely worth an occasional visit.

Having another store give a choice on prices is a big help to the budget. We have 3 grocery stores here (for around 13,000 people in the city not the surrounding area...closer to 30,000 then) and I sometimes think they collaborate on their prices.

God bless.
