Reduced for Quick Sale
After reading Jessica's post on freeganism, it's got me thinking about the amount of money we spend on food. As a loyal reader you already know that my oldest son is on the Autism spectrum and we've had him on the gluten free diet for almost a year. Food is a huge expense for us. Almost all of the food we consume is organic and made from scratch. I'm not ready for dumpster diving but I did recently discover the "reduced for quick sale cart" at my local co-op and natural market. I was able to find a huge bunch of almost brown, organic bananas for 99 cents! Which I then turned into GF Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins. Even the local Safeway, which I don't frequent often, has a reduced for quick sale cart full of breads and pastries. Ask the produce guy/gal that you see stocking veggies the next time you go to your local grocery store to see if they have a reduced cart. It may not be visibly out in the open, so take the time to ask.

There is also any local Panera cafes, which throw away TONS of baked goods every night at closing. For a while, I made it a habit to pop in right at closing, and sometimes got very lucky :)
People should read this.
