    We have a Butternut store here and you can get white bread for .58/.62 and whole wheat for under $1. That's pretty cheap considering its almost $2 at Kroger. I'll splurge every now and then for chocolate donuts for kids and they're under $1 too. Thats the only place I get my bread.

    We have two bakery outlet stores. One is Friehofers (sp) and one is Stroehmann that sell "day old" baked goods, bread, hot dog/hamburger buns, pies, donuts, cakes, bagels, etc. I don't shop much at either one because I can get baked goods cheaper (and fresher) at the commissary.

    We have three day old bread stores here.
    We use them when we need something I can't make.
    Thrift stores around here are expensive.
    Salvation army, DAV's, etc... all ask to much for their items.
    We have a used car lot here where the cars are donated and they ask an arm and leg for them. I don't understand how that is helping those who need the help. :/

    We use to have two around here (NH) and now they're gone. The sad part is that was before I lived frugally so I only went into one of them once. Sad!

    We have a Meritta (sp?) store here that sells all different brands of bread, snack cakes, pound cakes, doughnuts etc.... They are a lot cheaper than the grocery stores, none of it is day old stuff and none is damaged. I can usually get Iron Kids bread for $0.69 a loaf, snack cakes and doughnuts that normally run $0.50 or more each they sell 8/$1. It is not unusual for me to walk out of there with three loaves of bread, hot dog buns, BBQ bread and a pound cake for around $5.

    We have a Hosstess one. I love it. You can't even tell the differance. The baked goods don't last more than a day or two in this house, so that could be why!

    We have Merita Bread and Entenmann's Bakery. Both have breads, snacks, etc. So good, so cheap and I only buy breads and snacks there. The best thing about it also is they are just down the street from each other.

    We have a Sunbeam discount store in Brunswick and I hit it every time I'm over there and freeze the bread.
