    Thanks for the good info. Annoying that $tree is now $1.25 a product, it’s still a bargain. I buy cleaning products , calendars, and chips and candy that I take to the movies.

    Be careful when buying aluminum foil, plastic wrap, etc. Sometimes it’s so thin that you can’t use it. Cleaning products are usually really good buys there, as well as pet treats and craft supplies.
