    Any Big Lots Shoppers?

    Any Big Lots Shoppers?



    I'm wondering if anyone else besides me has found some pretty good food deals at Big Lots? I recently went into one nearby my house and was happy to find things like $1 Starkist canned tuna, 90 cent Starkist tuna packets (I like tuna), 90 cent canned sardines in water, a big bottle of Del Monte Ketchup (only $1.50), Special K Strawberry Flakes and Cheerios Multigrain for $1.50/box! I even spotted a box of Truvia sweetener, identical to a box I recently bought at Target, for half the price! BL seems to carry lots of boxed grains, spices, canned vegetables, soups.

    I realize items vary from store to store and when you see something you like, you better snatch it up fast because it may not be there tomorrow. Also, checking the expiration dates is important as the foods that are sold may be approaching those dates in the very near future. Today I went back to pick up more canned sardines only to find one can on the shelf that was the "in water" variety. Everything else was "in oil". I ended up buying that last can as well as a tin of "sardines in mustard sauce" that rather intrigued me.

    Just curious what kind of food finds you've discovered at Big Lots or at the 99 Cent Only Store, or at the Dollar Store?

    I LOVE biglots! Try not to go too often because I get in trouble there but I do go when I need canned chicken. We always have a stockpile of canned chicken along with tuna (hubby loves chicken salad sandwiches) and there I think the big cans r like 1.50 compared to closer to 4 bucks at the grocery store. They also have some awesome random finds there as far as sauces go. Oh, asparagus too. They often have it there and pretty cheap too.

    I don't go to Big Lots because its incredibly hard to get to and far away, but I love Dollar General. I find their "generic" brands of cookies and breakfast bars to be great and I honestly think they are made by the same companies with a different box or wrapper than the name brand ones. With 4 kids eating snacks it saves us a bundle!

    I have found Bob's Red Mill at BL! I was ecstatic!!! Bought it all.
    It was cheaper than ordering it directly from Bob's website I bulk!

    I love Big Lots for lots of things, but have seldom bought food there. We live far enough away from the BL here in Milwaukee that we don't go there often. We do have a local dollar store that used to have the best frozen meatballs. I would use them for potlucks when I was working where we had them on a regular basis. They tasted better than the ones at the grocery store that cost twice the price. These days I work in a much smaller setting so we don't have the potlucks and I don't need to buy them so haven't even looked to see if they are still available.

    And for home use Bruce has gotten into making homemade meatballs and they are way better than any of the frozen ones of course.

    It is a discontinued, expiring, etc clearing house. You can find good deals on lots of things. Who cares if the coffee pot/chainsaw/set-of-glasses are "last year's model"...
