BARGAINS--love 'em!

i searched, but couldn't find, a thread devoted to 'bargains'. let's see if this flies.... dc members quite frequently pass on information about a variety of special sale items and sites, but these are so often soon buried and lost....

here's my tip for the day: anyone looking to buy an inexpensive slow cooker should check out the hamilton beach, 4 quart, steel oval cooker, that sears currently has on sale for $9.99. i see that amazon has a 4 star rating for the model, but i have no direct info re this product....

if you have recently seen or heard of an awesome bargain buy, how about sharing it with your dc family...just post the specifics here, on our new 'message board' and let's see what happens....

Bj's Warehouse Club has Domino pure cane sugar $3.99 for a 10 pound bag (resealable plastic bag), this is quite a good deal for pure cane sugar.

Their store brand butter is $1.95 per pound (4 individual pounds per package). I can vouch for this product, I've used a lot of it.

Good idea for a thread V - I'm sure many will benefit from the information - especially with the holidays coming up.

amazon has a good price on a waring 4 slice toaster oven, $27. if you don't have amazon 'prime', you need to spend an additional eight dollars in order to qualify for free shipping. the oven has a brushed steel finish with black top and housing. it has consistently high ratings in customer reviews. the few complaints tended to be about the oven's small size.

ATK showed on their "Kitchen Gadgets" segment an ice cream cone maker. Only $49.00 It was a Chef's Choice. 4.5 stars at Amazon. Free shipping. Think of the fun your kids can have in the summer.
