I save a bit of my grocery budget by buying baked goods at the local outlet store.
Find a bakery outlet in your area and save 50-60% on bread products. The bakery outlets sell their products within the freshness dates. The days of dark, dingy, stale bread stores are a thing of the past.
The products primarily arrive from the company bakery. In addition to bread, you can find donuts, cookies, crackers, cereals, croutons, stuffing, snack foods, cakes and English Muffins.
Often as the expiration dates nears, the price is reduced even further. Some outlets give an additional discount to senior citizens.
