    Default Our Trip to the Salvage Grocery

    This is our second time to the closest salvage grocery so I had enough forsight to take pics this time around for those of you who may be interested in visiting a store near you.

    Here is our salvage booty (sans the 20lb kitty litter--didn't think you needed a visual on that) for a total of $107.46 which breaks down to about $1.13 for our 95 items. HTH.

    I love my salvage grocery. Have told dozens of people about it. They have mentioned that I told them about the place to the owners who thank me everytime I come in.

    What a haul! Way to go. Wish we had salvage stores in our neck of the woods.

    Well played! The best thing about salvage gracery stores is that a lot of the stuff you find there is the same stuff you wouldn't buy from a regular grocery store..because it's so expensive in the regular store.

    Yep! For instance, we would never buy the Michaelina's frozen lunches/dinners, but heck, for 33 cents/piece dh will be set on any days we feel like being lazy/don't have leftovers/running late. And the kids love it because on both trips we have let them get some snacky food that we wouldn't normally buy. The staff there is very nice and friendly, too. It's a win-win for us on many levels. My only "fiddlesticks!" this time is that they didn't have my shade of permanent haircolor this time around!

    Nice job. There used to be a salvage store near Baltimore years ago. It's not there anymore. I'm not sure if state regulations forced it out of business because I can't find any salvage stores in Maryland.

    I went to my first salvage grocery in MA Sunday. The best buy I got probably was the tomato paste, < .40 a can. I got some chicken stock too, was really happy with it, .70 a can, then got to a 2nd salvage store, associated with a co-op and found organic stock there for .45 a can!

    Great Job!! I'm very impressed. You got a lot of good brands, even Organic, for cheap. We do not have a Salvage store around us. The best I get is a Grocery Outlet.
