Big Lots shopping is a craps shoot. Sometimes you will find incredibly unbelievable values and sometimes there is nothing that great or even good. On good trips I have found organic and vegetarian canned foods, frozen foods, and boxed foods and it has helped cut my food budget...other things to check out - their households department often has nice dishes and cloth napkins and tableclothes, the bigger ones have furniture departments and the often have discontinued items. If something you like is discontinued there's a pretty good chance that you'll eventually find it at Big Lots. I usually make it out there evrey other weekor so.
