Cleaning stuff, random stuff, things for the kids to use in the pool (floaties, those "noodle" things), cheap decorations for a party I just threw together...sometimes Chapstick, but I'm unsure if that's safe to use from the dollar store...

A few weeks ago, I bought several cases of brand name canned goods
for 60% & 70% off & name brand coffee for 5$ a can.
Not bad 19$ for 3 boxes of food. Funny part of the reason it was in close out,was it was salt free or "natural" :) Rick

Make sure you check expiration dates...

I do thanks.
BUT it has been proven many many times,canned goods,specific ones ,now milk products etc. have much longer exp. dates than the one used, true it IS a safety measure.
BUT it is usually going to last much longer if kept at normal temps.
Maybe t.m.i or in this sites case :) seen as automatic b.s lol.
But I have spent many yrs reading cooking mags. books etc. lol remember those :)

Yes I do agree though,they can't sell stuff like that anyway. & in this stores case they have such a high turn over rate,it is a busy store, they move stuff quickly to the front lol .
In my case & my friend, I shop with it is a great find,because I can count on certain new items being turned around in about a mo. or holiday stuff being 70% off a week after the holiday :)
rambling a bit:) but just the opposite a main grocery store near me. rotates stuff & only marks a few cents off & it just sits ,probably until it is donated to a food bank.
Most of this stuff is tomato & tomato products, a few "gourmet" brands of vegetables &canned fruit. But yes it pays to be an educated shopper. Rick

I unwittingly bought a box of CrackerJacks 2 yrs. past its expiration date at the $ store. Ever chew on a shoebox?
