On Beach Street in Fort Worth (off of I-30) there is a salvage grocery store called Town Talk Foods. It is a great place to find overruns, label changed items, buyouts from closed stores, close dated items etc. You can save lots of $ there, although their stock changes all the time . . . if you see it and want it, buy then — it probably won’t be there next time.
Many items are marked $0.59, but if you buy 2 at the same time, the price changes to 2/$1.00 and $0.79 becomes 2/$1.50, etc.
I personally will not buy any repackaged items and am religious about checking expiration dates as they do sell close dated items (and I have seem some expired dated products which I avoid like the plague.
Most 1 lb. pasta items are frequently 3/$1.00 which is when I stock uo the pantry.
Good luck on your move!

We’re moving from CA to Fort Worth, TX in June. I’m going to be
setting up house before my DH joins us at the end of August. I’ve been
told by our moving company that they won’t move anything in the kitchen
except spices and especially nothing that has been opened. So I’m
having to start over with my pantry. I’d like to keep expenses down
but I’m still going to make my Costco run for meat and milk and such.
I’m just wondering does anyone have a basic pantry list that I can look
at or where to find one? I want to make sure I don’t miss anything.
