My g/f used to work for one of those "scratch and dent" stores, and if you buy there most of the time the item will be out of date, and there is never any fresh food. And since I have two very efficient, and good, bread machines I would question if you can make home made bread cheaper.If someone is too lazy to their prepare food, maybe they need to go hungry.
Canned vegetables are often a good buy, especially store brands. End of story.

You can make bread cheaper than store bought - even the day old from the outlet.
