I love Big Lots! I search there first for everything before going to the "regular" store. Lately, I've had good luck finding great bargains on Kashi cereals & oatmeals - under $2 a box which is much cheaper than the grocery store! They also have lots of nuts, water, and crackers that are healthy and a bargain! Though you may have to hunt for the items, it is worth it.
On a recent shopping trip, I got my daughter a Schwinn bicycle with training wheels for under $30!
