Weekend Wow!!!

Fort Worth Friends:  Have you heard of Town Talk???  It's the best kept secret in our fine city!!!  Town Talk is a grocery store warehouse that carries overstock, discontinued items, etc.  I visited Town Talk yesterday because I needed some spices that are VERY expensive in the regular grocery store or supercenter.  Here's what I bought:

1 Jar Chai Spice
1 Jar Pumpkin Pie Spice
1 Jar Curry Powder
1 Jar Rosemary Leaves
1 Large Jar Paprika 
1 Large Jar Ground Cinnamon
1 Large Jar Garlic Powder
1 Jar Bay Leaves

Grand Total OOP = $13.30!!!!  

If you're interested in heading to Town Talk to find some great buys for yourself, I keep these pointers in mind:

  • Go on a Saturday.  Word has it that this is when the trucks are unloaded and they have the best selection.  Going on a Saturday also helps you to be leisurely and really hunt for the best deals.  
  • Before you leave, make sure you KNOW YOUR PRICES in the local grocery store, as some of the Town Talk prices are HIGHER than the regular store.  
  • SET A BUDGET before you leave home.  I recommend setting a limit of $10-$20.  Take cash with you so that you have to stick to your budget!  When you are setting your budget, be aware that Town Talk DOES NOT accept coupons because they are a warehouse center.  
Have a great time finding super deals on a few of the things that you would ordinarily pay through the nose for!!!!
