Outlet stores!

I used to go to an outlet bread store years ago. But it closed. I was driving and looked over to a Earthgrains bread disributer center and saw a sign in the window that said "buns". So on my way back I stoped in the parking lot to read the other signs. It was an outlet center for Sara Lee. I fond out some interesting things. To all you out there that thinks store brand is worse or not as good as name brand.....Sara Lee/ Earthgrains makes Fry's brand bagels english muffins and buns. Haha! Some of the prices were not as good as I would think but loves of bread and buns were an awesome price. Here are some of the things I saw...

SL mini bagels $1
sm SL buns (hotdog and hamburger) $.89
lg SL buns (premium including onion, seseme seed ect.) $1.09-1.29
loaf breads (SL, earthgrains, iron kids, Sun Maid Rasian bread ect. all kinds of stuff) $1.09-1.29

They did have cereal and generic stuff but not at very good prices. I got 1 sl mini bagels and 2 sl buns for dinner tonight.

Went on Saturday early in the morning and got my produce from the co-op. I can't find my camera so there are not pictures....

9- apples
8- pears
2- english cucumbers
1- head of lettuce
5- bananas
4- artachokes
3lb grapes
3- yellow squash
1- cantalope
3- avacados
4- vine tomatoes
4- oranges

All for $15. My co-op was selling bison. Not sure what the value is but it was a bunch of different cuts that added up to 12 lb for $65. I have never had it before. But if the have sampler packs again I might try some. Cases of apples were $50 I think and organic breads were $2 a loaf. I don't think I would have a need for a whole case of apples. If my family ate a lot of applesauce I might but the kids don't eat it much. And I don't have a big freezer or I would make apple pies and pie filling. I can't wait until they offer organic honey and olive oil again.

Sorry, guys. I did not go shopping this Sunday. I got all I needed of the cereal onsale at Fry's this week. And the others were not all that interesting to me. I did manage to get another $25 gift card from Walgreens for another transfer.

I went to the doc today and got 2 new rx's for dd. So those are going to Safeway. They have a coupon on the back for $30 gift certificate with a new or transfered RX.
