I look for the pricey oddities not too many are thinking about. I remember also when a few of the stores were closing several years ago - I scored vanilla beans, saffron, a really nice balsamic vinegar, and KerryGold butter 75% off while I watched ppl competing for chef boyardee cans. I'm out of town, or I would have popped in a few to see what booze was left. I think it went to half off today. I'd hope to score some expensive stuff, but I bet that'd be picked through.
I'm with you, searching out bargains in the exotic. Wow, a box of Weetabix. In English murder mysteries people are always eating Weetabix for breakfast. Now's my big chance. Bulletin: don't bother. Just now I tried some. Mushiest cereal I ever ate. The pigeons in the park will get my Weetabix.
