Baked Goods



Save money shopping for baked goods by purchasing them at a bakery outlet, or purchasing them day-old at the supermarket.  Most large cities have bakery outlets.  You may have to drive a bit to get there, but if you have a freezer, they are thrift friendly and will come out as fresh as they went in.


Most supermarkets mark down their unsold bakery items in the evening or early morning.  They are often placed in out-of-the-way areas of the store.  Shoppers who know where they are snap them up first thing in the morning.
