If you don’t shop there, you are nuts!
I just got (note: I didn’t say bought)….I just GOT eleven loaves of bread (whole grain whole wheat, steel cut oat bread, potato bread, milk & honey bread, 7 grain bread), two 8-packs of hamburger buns, and seven boxes of Franz donuts (yes, donuts)….for $14.00. These are the Franz donuts that sell for $2.49 in the store. The Franz specialty breads that sell for at least $1.50 in the store, on sale. Hamburger buns, well, nothing special there, but probably $2-$3 at the store. OH, and a bag of animal cookies and three Hostess pies. Yes, we are junk food junkies at the moment!
That’s 24 items…at less than 60-cents per item!!
So how did I get everything for so cheap?
First off, I start by shopping the day-old items that are marked down. That’s where I bought the donuts and 9 loaves of bread. The hamburger buns and 2 extra loaves of bread were my “freebies”. And Mondays are double-punch days (for a little while longer at least), so that gets me all the closer to $10 in free product!
Don’t want day-old breads? The fresh breads and fresh donuts are still cheaper than they are in the stores. I frankly cannot tell a difference. It all goes into my freezer anyway.
And normally I would buy ZERO donuts, but we have a 5-day camping trip this weekend, and are going with another family, so I figured I’d better buy several boxes, and the cookies, and the pies we ate in the car as a “treat”.
But still, with just the bread alone I saved a bunch of money, for very little effort and time spent.
