The smores maker is what I've seen in the thrift stores.. would be ideal for making toast.

Thanks for doing the research Roberta

That is useful information to know, be prepared ahead of time on things you haven't used before.

Good afternoon all!!

While wandering through the children's section of WM this morning, I spotted the clearance section. I found Mother's Instant Whole Grain Oatmeal, 11 oz. for $1 box. I bought 4 for stocking up. I normally eat stone cut oats, but if there was an emergency this would be good. I looked at the "best by" date and it is this December. It can be used not only as cereal, but also for toppings for crumbles and cobblers too.

Take care all!! Norma

I canned 20 pints of the sweetest fresh pineapple I have ever had. Got them for .88/ea. the other day (12), and stretched to 20 pints. It sure will be good this winter.

Good going on the canning I haven't seen pineapples quite that cheap here yet.. $1 each so far but haven't had time to think about canning any. We love pineapples so I need to start thinking that way.

I found quite by accident yesterday at work.. a case of 48 small ind. size cans Bluebird Orange Juice it wasn't cheap, with employee discount $17 but these are perfect for our stocking up and using only one at a time instead of having to open a full sized can. dh had one for breakfast and said it was good. The only problem is the xp. date was December. I talked to my boss this morning and I can order them, get them within 24 hours. He has to look up the price as these were on managers special. A customer had ask me if we carried them and I said No only the juice box type and plastic bottles. She came back and showed me what she had found and I bought the case after I got off work. Good for stocking and good for if we get sick with a cold and don't feel up to trudging out in the snow, below zero weather to get some. This fall I'll be working on freezing up chicken noodle soup for the deep freezer. That was another item that came in handy the last time I was sick with the flu. Nothing makes you feel better than homemade chicken noodle soup.

Oatmeal stays good for a long time so that was indeed a good buy. Make sure though that you put them in glass jars or tin cans to keep any rodents out of it.

Anna those individual cans are probably the right size for many recipes that call for orange juice too. You have 6 months to put a couple dollars back each month so you can order another case in Jan.
