Big Lots is one of those stores that you can find some really great buys if you’re willing to put some time and effort in. This store specialized in close out items. Their selection is constantly changing so you have to go their often to really see what they have. I do not generally buy any of the food or cosmetic items since I figure if they’re close outs they’re probably nearing the end of their shelf lives. They have excellent prices on household items and I have been able to get some great buys by accident here when I’ve come looking for something else completely.
