Great shopping! Mister Linky is up for this week's Crock Pot Wednesday. I figured with the busy week and weekend, that we should get an early start. I hope you will come on over and join me. There's a giveaway going on.

Wow, very impressive! Where do you store all your items? You must have big cabinets and closet space! Glad you got great deals and are stocked up now!

P.s. - I seriously laughed at your comment on my blog post regarding my 5k race -- breathing like Darth Vadar. That was priceless! And I know just what you mean! Thanks for the laugh.

Thanks Mandy! I wrote a short series on how to store your stockpile...

You might find it helpful. I really need to do inventory and see just how many toothpastes and things I have. It can get ridiculous, but they're FREE and you can always give them to someone in need.
