Deals is a great place to pick up basics, both
grocery and health and beauty supplies.
I have picked up name brand groceries for either a dollar or 2/1.00. One example is Eli's cheesecake. Definitely a winner! They also carry gifts, housewares, and books. Of course, there ar some items it is cheaper to get elsewhere on sale, but when you're pressed for time, this is a good place to go.
