Hi, everyone! My name is Michelle(yes another one lol). I am a
transplanted Baystster living in Upstate New York with my DH,DS,and
DD. I've gotten lots of great tips from this list. I like when
everyone chats about their good deals they get on groceries etc. I
work retail and over the past couple of weeks I've gotten a few good
deals that I'd like to share with everyone. The bakery at the store
I work in sometimes has things that are going out of date. That day
they mark it dowm to nothing,bring it out back and the people who
work there can buy it for whatever price is marked on it(most of the
time it stays on the floor and goes on a bargin rack). Any money
collected goes to the Children's Miracle Network. Anyway, I got 24
mini croissants for $.50 and 10 frosted star shaped cookies for

$.25. A couple days ago I got 2 10# bags of potatoes for $2.00 and
10 ears of corn for $1.00!! I just wanted to share my deals and to
say hello
