Now That's A Great Value

Great Value Honey Bun
Wal-Mart (2020)
If you're trying to save a little money on your grocery order, it's not a bad idea to see if there's a generic store brand version of your favorite products.  For example, these honey buns are every bit as delicious as the name brand ones, and at 2 for $1.00, they're about half the price.

Eagle eyed shoppers who are willing to sacrifice freshness for savings can get an even better deal by looking for products with reduced stickers.  These are usually near or slightly past the best by date, and in most cases, they're just as good.  That is, of course, unless you're at the Wal-Mart in Hazleton, where honey buns that expired four days ago are "reduced" to a price that's 6 cents higher than the price on the box they came in.  The sticker says that somebody is saving 19 cents, but I'll be damned if I can figure out who.
