With a family of 8, I love to find ways to stretch our food dollars. But, if you're like I was, the words "Bakery Outlet" made me think of stale white bread and gross sugary snack cakes; I wasn't interested in visiting one. My friend Kim told me about the great deals she was getting on good bread, though, so I decided to try it out.
I'm sold! On my last visit, I bought tortilla chips (that we love), pre-made pizza crusts, and, of course, lots of bread. The bread was soft and most of it was still a week away from the 'sell-by' date. I put a lot of it in the freezer, and it should last us a couple of weeks. The grand total for 14 items? $15.96. Pretty good, don't ya think?
