Anyone done this? I've done it before when we lived in a different state. My DH says their food doesn't taste as good. I think it's fine.

I will get my cleaning supplies their but anything that my family is going to eat there is no way I would do that, it just grosses me out  just my personal opinion.

We dont have much at ours but I do go there to get DF snacks for his lunches for work. Also if they have some good prices on what little they do have I will get it.

I don't know why but I don't trust food products from there. I don't have any particular reason, just a feeling so I don't buy anything edible.  No toothpaste, mouthwash, that sort of thing either. I DO buy toothbrushes there though.  LOL

I've done it many times and I've always  been satisfied with what they have. Especially with their prices. Just put the stuff in another container and he'll never know the difference! Or just don't let him know where it come from.

When we are on vacation at the beach that is where I get certain things mainly dry products...cereal, rice, pasta.  I also go to the local Dollar Store where I live to buy the cleaning products and other certain items.

    Yes as a matter of fact , I picked up a few groceries from there yesterday. The Dollar Store is normally where I do my "in between grocery store days shopping" at. If we missed something or ran out of something small & are low on cash - that's the place you'll find me! lol They have name brand stuff just like the grocery store has & generic stuff like the grocery store has too so I don't see why anyone would be afraid to eat their food.
