Stockpiling and My Chocolate Stash

So, call me crazy. But, I get really excited when I score a stockpile of items for cheap or free. Last week it was crackers and cereal. The weeks before my deals included lots of diapers. In the last few months since I started this grocery geek thing, I’ve been able to nab great deals […]
