Last of the Snow and a New Store: Winco

I mentioned the snow last week. Well on day two of the snow, Tiffany made a snowman.

Notice the area where the snow has melted? Yeah, most of my friends’ snow was already gone by then. We still had enough for the snowman. :D

However the morning of day 4, this was all we had left. :D

I had Tiff snap a quick picture as we were leaving for church. There might have been some snow left up against the south side of the house and other things but this was all I could see.

This week is POURED rain!!!! Our puddles were in puddles. We were swamped. Tiffany and I decided not to go out in all that rain and just stayed inside . . . well, I did run out to put a card in the mailbox while it was raining, but that is nothing like running to four or more stores in the pouring down rain. Of course the day we did run errands it was FREEZING cold! Yep! Very very cold (for OK). ;)

New Store: Winco

We had a new store open up. Remember me telling you about that store that was opening up next to Ross? Well, it is now open and Tiffany and I checked it out this week.

I’m impressed. They have some really good prices! Of course, like most other stores, you need to know your prices. If you go, the have some price labels that have a green sticker; these are special prices . . . think sales.

BULK Section

Their bulk sections is amazing!

Fresh ground nut buttersSeveral different honeys, one was raw honey Bulk spices!!! (These prices are per POUND.) I think they had a couple dozen different spices. Different colored popcorn kernels Brown Rice Pastas!!! If these taste like the ones we buy elsewhere I’m going to be very happy because they are quite a bit cheaper. :)  More brown rice pasta and some parmesan cheese. Then there was a bin below for the brown rice spaghetti. :) (It’s cheaper than what I’ve been spending too. ) These bean mixes look good. A nice vegetable soup mix, very clean ingredients. Such a great price on the split peas. I’ll have to get some of them next week and plan to make some split pea soup. The recipe I have is called Cheapskate Soup. :) At this price it really will be. Coconut flour, almond flour, gluten free flour!!! Wonderful! I will have to check the price I have been getting it. They had spare ribs for 98¢ a pound. It was a special, so I got two of their smaller packages. Their cheese is priced good too. We got a block of gouda and one of mozzarella. We snacked on the gouda and it was gooda!!! :)

No Credit Cards

They don’t take credit cards though. I usually use a card that gives me rewards for my purchases, but I knew ahead of time that I’d need to use cash or my debit card. I think they take checks too but I’m not sure.

No Memberships

So they say they are like a membership club (e.g. Sam’s, Costco) without a membership. They have the large bulk bags of oats, rice, and such and 50# bags of dog food too.

They even have animal snacks in bulk.

  I was impressed and will go back frequently . . . probably even every week. :o

We only did the perimeter of the store and spent an hour and a half there really looking over all that was available in the produce and bulk sections. We moved a bit more quickly through the rest of the perimeter of the store. We’ll check out the rest of it in the coming weeks. ;)

Well, that’s it from me today. I hope you have

And I want to wish my daughter-in-love, Lauren

Until next time, God bless,
