Twice a year the Commissary has a case-lot sale, which is generally very good deals. The problem is that while the items are in bulk and cheaper, I still end up with a lot of money invested in things that don't really feed us for the week - like ketchup and sandwich bags. While I didn't plan on buying much more than chicken (which they didn't have this time) and pet food, I still came home with this -
We had three very-full carts (mostly due to dog and cat food), and since the van has about zero cargo room in the back, we had to move the few kids I did take to the back row and pack from the front back. Then they got to climb over it each and every stop I made - like I don't attract enough attention just trying to park and unload the kids.
Here's what I now get to organize in my already crowded storage room. I need to have a serious clean-out day!
The dog food was $12.50 for the 44 pound bag and the cat food was $7.50 for the big bag; with four dogs and 100 cats (give or take a dozen), this won't last as long as I hope.
On a more heart-warming note than dog food, this is what I found when I headed to bed last night. Sweet, huh?
