The Pantry Primer: Grocery Outlet Victory
Imagine my delight when I saw a sign that said, “Grocery Store Clearance Outlet”.
Those words in combination made my little prepper’s heart go “pitter patter”.
We actually had to go up to the next exit and then turn around to come back to stop at the store, but the detour was well worth it! I walked in and I think I heard harps playing, angels singing, and all that good stuff when I saw the bare concrete floors and the sky-high piles of cans and boxes. The warehouse-style organization generally means excellent prices and we were not disappointed. Best of all, this is fairly near my daughter’s new school so I can drop in once a week without a big detour.
