This tip come from my reader Megan….
I wanted to share with you another way that I save money. I buy all my bread products at the local bakery thrift shop. These are the day-old breads that don’t sell in the stores, so they are sent to the thrift store to be sold CHEAP! (They also have fresh items that cost a little more than the day-old, but are still cheaper than the regular grocery store). For example, if I buy a loaf of Orowheat bread at Wal-Mart, it can cost around $2.29. I went to the bakery thrift store today and bought 8 loaves of Orowheat bread, 5 packages of Thomas’ English Muffins (2 were 9 packs instead of the usual 6), 1 package Orowheat Sandwich Thins, and 1 package of hamburger buns- all for $13.50! I shop about once every 2 months and put all the bread in our deep freeze. Then, whenever we finish a loaf of bread I can just go to the freezer and pull out a fresh loaf! This saves me not only money, but a lot of shopping time too.
My tip – Also check to see if your local Dollar Tree has bread. Mine does! They have Nature’s Own for $1.
