Where do you shop? I wanna shop there! They are really hard to find around here. I think I lucked out at Bi-Mart the other day. But, I think Bi-Mart gets stuff that others don't want.

Himself has "Hunts Only" taste buds. I think Market Basket sells the 8-ounce ones for around the same price (69 cents), but they regularly sell the "quart" size for $1 a can or, more usually lately, 2/$3. A lot of things I make call for the 15-ounce can, so I just split the big one equally. I have a small inventory of 29-ounce cans of tomato products (puree, whole, crushed, sauce) in the basement, most all bought for a buck.

More likely it has to do with downsizing the product and trying to get you to think it's the same volume/size. It's the current way of increasing profit without upping the price.

Don't try to get him to figure out how to give you change from a $2 bill.

Lived a while in Aotearoa (New Zealand) and studied te reo Mäori and tikanga-a-iwi. Their version is aroha. They have a custom of close friends or relatives pressing the tips of their noses together and sharing breath: hongi. Very moving.

CG, do you have a Walmart?
Ours has Hunts 8oz. cans for 54¢
I'm in the same mini van as Ginny, I keep a dry goods pantry stocked at all times out in our finished garage. DH calls it my own "C Store", my Mom was absolutely appalled when he showed it to her.
"What do you need all that for?"
It's food Mom, ya know stuff you eat.
Oh, and then there's my two deep freezes ... that really threw her over the edge!

We were a day late. The chippie comes to town every two weeks, on a Tuesday, so we were there. They park the truck near a bar that doesn't serve food, so we take our orders in and order pints.



It's deep-fried, but not greasy. Quite a treat in this landlocked state.

The Walmart I usually go to isn't the kind with a big grocery store. The bigger Walmarts...I just don't like the layout of the stores. Besides, 8 ounces from my 29 ounce can is still cheaper.

And pantry? I'm slowly working my stock down to nothing. I used to have nearly double of this. I'm doing the same with my freezer. Every time I get some empty space, I put an old juice bottle almost filled with water in the empty spot so that my freezer stays "full".

This is the brand I usually buy. They are on sale often for around 25 - 30 cents a can. Or sometimes 5 for a dollar. Can't beat that price.

Good idea, CG! When we moved, I sent all my spices up to MIL's to hold until we found a new home. Anything left in the freezer went to friends...along with much of my pantry stuff. NOTE: If you have any picnic coolers, they make excellent "moving" boxes for the spices!
