    Default Sources for food

    I used to think our town had only two sources to buy groceries. We had two supermarkets, that's it. Was more partial to one over the other.

    But with my new frugal mind the shopping has expanded! I can now proudly include Wal-Mart (not a supercenter, but they recently just added food items), two dollar stores that sell food, and lo' and behold, there's a Wonder Bread bakery thrift shop not a 1/2 mile from my house that I didn't realize sold to the public!! And I'm not sure if they sell much food, but a Walgreens is almost ready for their grand opening, I can't wait! Kinda nice to have choices and go on 'the hunt'.

    I like those bakery outlets. The closest one to me is about 20 minutes away. They used to be extremely cheap, but now they're up to .99 a loaf....still better than the store, but not the 5/$2 that I was used to.

    I've read alot about salvage stores, too, but to my knowledge, there's none in my town.

    Good going! We're in a similar situation, w/ only one grocery store in town. But, after living here a while, I found that the SHARE program (www.sharecolorado.com) has a distribution center ONE MILE from me! Now I order every month!!!!

    Yes I need to find a bread outlet near me. I love to stock up! I also make sure to hit the Pepperidge Farn outlet when I am in Pigeon Forge TN - goldfish and cookies cheap!

    I just recently checked out a new walmart supercenter nearby and couldn't believe the frozen veggie choices. There was so much to choose from. My regular large grocery store isn't that well stocked. The best part is the prices at WM were pretty good too.
