|My Big Lots Haul|
We also scored something special and unexpected, which I'll show you at the end of this post.
Tortillas: Each package contains 10 flour tortillas. $.80 each - which is $.20 cheaper than Aldi!
Nature's Own Whole Wheat bread: It should have been $1.12, but I was overcharged by $1.43. I'm trying to decide if it's really worth taking back the receipt on one of their busiest days of the year. I generally watch pretty carefully when the cashier is ringing up the items. Dollar Tree carries this same name brand bread for $1.00 a loaf. But, I was already there, so, I bought it while at Big Lots.
Yardley Oatmeal and Almond Soap: 3 pack. I got three packages for $2.64 each.
Speed Stick Regular deodorant: 3 sticks for $1.60 each.
Suave Professionals Rosemary and Mint Shampoo. We've gotten this exact brand before and love it! These were the large 28 oz. bottles for just $3.20 each.
Hair Scrunchies - pack of 32 thin ones for $2.00.
Fresh Finds Purified Drinking Water: Fresh Finds is Big Lots' house brand. Each case contained 24 bottles of water and was $2.00 each.
Check out the name brand no-salt canned vegetables! I bought 6 of each kind. Generally no-salt comes at a premium price, but at Big Lots' 20% off Friends and Family Weekend!
Hunts Tomato Sauce: $.28 each.
Del Monte Canned Corn: $.80 each.
Fresh Finds Brand
As I mentioned, Fresh Finds is Big Lots' house brand and I've always been very satisfied with both the quality and the price of these items.
Pure cane sugar #4 bags - $1.60 each
Mustard: $.80 each
Spices: $.80 each - I got six of them: thyme, oregano, sage, dill, and 2 bay leaves
Vinegar: 1 gallon for $1.60. I use it for both cooking and cleaning.
Golden Harvest raw and unfiltered honey. 3 pounds for $8.00. I pondered whether this was a good price for raw/unfiltered honey. But, just in case it was, I went ahead and got it.
Four Sisters Coffee - expresso roast. 1 pound for $4.00. I have NO idea what this is like. But, hey, it was worth the gamble.
Bob's Red Mill Gluten Free Pancake Mix: $3.00
Under the Stairs Light: $4.80
Play Dough: 24 pack. $5.60. I set this aside as a Christmas gift for my 10 year old. It already marked on Clearance and they took an additional 20 % off for today's sale.
Our BIG Purchase:
We had set aside $500 for a new patio set and looked in vain all season long. Patio furniture is expensive! When we walked into Big Lots they had just one set left at 50% off. There is a cover for the middle that allows you to use it as a table. The top surface is stone. This is a stock photo because our chairs are still in a huge box, awaiting assembly tomorrow after church. Even though it was already marked down from $600 to $300 dollars, they took an additional 20% off for Friends and Family Weekend. We walked away with a set just like this one for just over $250 including tax! Since Big Lots offers their reward members $10 back for each $100 spent on furniture, we will receive an additional $20 reward from Big Lots in the next few weeks! Yay! We even have money left over to purchase a large free-standing market umbrella to give us shade while we are dining on the patio.
