Do you shop at the bakery outlets? I do and it is a great way to save money. The prices are usually 40% to 50% less than the grocery stores. They are even cheaper than Walmart.
In my town, we have Wonder/Hostess outlet and the Sara Lee bakery outlet. Why are the outlets cheaper? The Hostess outlet receives shipments directly from the bakery thus cutting out the middleman. The Sara Lee outlet sells slightly imperfect packages because of cosmetic damage or slight weight difference.
The best part is that they carry the name brand specialty items such as the 45 calorie Sara Lee bread. That loaf of bread would cost about $3.50 at the regular grocery store but it is only $1.75 at the Sara Lee outlet. Hostess outlet has their brand name snacks such as Hostess cupcakes and Ding Dongs at a great discount. The Hostess outlet also has a shopper card which gives you a discount after a certain number of purchases.
You can find a bakery outlet by looking in your phone book or by searching online for bakery outlet and your city name. Hostess makes it easy to locate their bakery outlets by just using their store locator.
