I am reading a book Cut your Bills in Half I got it at the second hand store.
Grocery stores mark up nonfood items to compensate for low food prices. They suggest buying these at the discount store.
Here is the list:
Brushes, Paper napkins, Shampoo, dish detergent, tissue, garbage bags,
toilet paper, Laundry soap and toothpaste.

What are some thing's you've found cheaper at the discount store?

My husband just noticed yesterday we don't have plastic wrap. I said, we haven't had any for four months and you just noticed now?

I haven't bought paper towels in 2 years. I keep cleaning rags in the kitchen and if we have a spill on the floor I wipe it with one of those and then it gets washed with the cleaning rags.

Everything that goes in the fridge goes in some tupperware mostly bought second hand.
