Response to nitpicker (Reply #44)

46. And that's how we used to shop. We are retired, so we have lots of time.

We would start at the Dollar Store, where there are some bargains to be had, but there is a lot they don't have. Then on to the Discount grocery store chain, where the sell odd lots of off-brands and discontinued products or flavors. Also some merchandise that the regular markets sell, just cheaper because of low overhead. The carts are beat up, the clerks make less money, etc.

Then there are two major chain stores. One has the cheapest and best meats and an excellent Bakery. The other one has excellent and reasonably priced produce and seafood. Also the cheapest liquor and other drinks. Like I said in the OP, it was almost like a hobby to us and we had fun with it. One day when the danger of the virus goes away (we should get our first vaccine shit in a week or two) we will go back to our old way of shopping being an outing we look forward to. But for now it's all about safety.
