Last Friday night, I hit the Giant grocery store on Carlisle after work. Because I work on the night news desk, that meant shopping around midnight.
I just needed a few items: olive oil, chocolate chips, tofu, etc. Not even worth grabbing a cart, really.
As I was walking down the ice cream aisle, I noticed a folding table covered in non-perishable groceries. Pasta, juice, vitamins, barbecue sauce, soup cans, croutons, all marked with a yellow discount sticker.
I had found the clearance table right after stocking. It was full of wonderful things at enviable prices.
Forgetting my grocery list, I went to town grabbing everything I needed or wanted or would never buy at retail. But at $.75? Sold.
If you want to fill your pantry on quality items (that might have a tattered appearance, but are still safe and delicious) and spend less than a dollar on each individual item, shop Giant at midnight.
