Got a Great Haul, Y'all!

Shortly after I started this blog, I made a post about the wondrous magic that is the salvage grocery store. Almost every big city has at least one, and even a few small towns have them scattered about. The salvage stores don't have money to advertise, so you generally only find out about them through word-of-mouth. Start asking around! Seriously, you will save a crap-ton of your cash if you can find one. Let me prove it to ya!

In today's particular haul, I purchased the following items:
  • Gluten-Free Crackers (x4 boxes)
  • Organic Toasted Sesame Seed Oil
  • Alexia Sweet Potato Fries (x3 bags)
  • Organic Whole Wheat Couscous (x2 boxes)
  • EnviroKids Cereal (x2 boxes)
  • Zevia Soda (x4 cans)
  • Sweet Potato Chips
  • La Croix Soda (8-can case)
  • 2 lbs. Whole Wheat Flour
  • Organic Quinoa (x2 bags)
  • Sea Snax Snack Bags (x6 bags)
  • Pure Vanilla Extract
  • Drew's Organic Salad Dressing
  • Silken Tofu (x8 packs)
  • Clean Well Natural Hand Sanitizer (x2)
  • Organic Tahini Paste 
  • Firm Tofu (x2)
  • Organic Decaf Coffee
  • Eli's Earth Bars (x8)
  • Indian Food Pouches (x2)
  • Endangered Species Dark Chocolate Bars (x2)
  • Leap Frog Flash Card Sets (x2)

Nice haul, right? Now, guess how much I paid for all of this organic, vegan goodness - which, at a regular store would easily have cost somewhere between $150 and $200, if not more. Go ahead, guess!

$54 and some change. That's it!
Anytime you've ever seen an ingredient on this blog that is way too expensive for a "bankrupt vegan" to afford, it's in my kitchen because I found it at the salvage store. Visit the original post for more information, and a couple of links that might help you find a salvage store in your area.
