Salvage (or as I call them-Scratch & Dent) stores offer the best prices on groceries and other household goods.
Here’s what you can expect to find at one:
- Low, low prices
- Sometimes they accept Food Stamps (also known as SNAP)
- Dented cans or boxes (NOT bulging cans, which would indicate that the food has gone bad)
- Pet food & products
- Baby food & diapers
- Out of season merchandise-think holiday flavors of snacks & cookies, etc.
- Items past their “best by” or “sell by” date
- Here’s what the USDA writes about this: Except for “use-by” dates, product dates don’t always pertain to home storage and use after purchase. “Use-by” dates usually refer to best quality and are not safety dates. Even if the date expires during home storage, a product should be safe, wholesome and of good quality if handled properly.
- The only products which are federally required to have a date stamp is infant formula.
I regularly shop at these kinds of stores and have NEVER had an issue with food safety. What I have been able to get are bags of groceries even cheaper than at Aldi. (Note: Aldi is NOT a salvage grocery store. All of their products are first-quality & fresh).
One of my favorite stores in the country is 2nd Chance Goods, LLC in Oshkosh, WI. Whenever I’m in town I always make it a point to stop by and load up on deals. Plus, they literally could not be nicer people!
