they didn't have much more than that left and no fresh stuff had been delivered for a few days.

Hardly ever use matches but when i need them i never have them.
Lighting birthday candles is the main reason.
Imagine how many boxes i will need for my 40th!

No pull along baskets for ages.

We had a Winn Dixie close down here a few years ago. Once they got to the serious selling off (usually with a going out of business, they RAISE prices and then start lowering them) we stopped by and bought all sorts of oddities that we'd normally not purchase. It's a good chance to pick up things you use, or would use, or want to try. :yes:

The fresh produce, dairy and meat goes first.

There was no dairy,meat or fresh produce available yesterday just non perishable goods.

If you have a dishwasher they had boxes and boxes of tablets for 1 but i've never had room for one in my kitchen!

That sounds great. I can't believe magners was that cheap! It is usually about 9 for a box of four. Yummy stuff!

I once had a portable dishwasher on wheels DizneyBlonde. The kitchen was not set up for a built in machine, and I didn't want to do renovations (old house) so I bought a portable, stored it in the back room and rolled it out to use. It hooked up easily to the kitchen faucet.

Could you maybe use something like that? I LOATHE doing dishes (silly, isn't it) so would go to almost any lengths to have a dishwasher. :yes: (I said almost :D )! LOL.

Some Stella and the Magner's was for my Dad...honest.

Not had Martini for years but thought it would be nice in the garden in the summer evenings. :biggrin:

Plenty of "ladies" products though, even though you just had all that nonsense removed. :lol:
