I can't remember if I have mentioned this on this forum. Go To Estate Sales! Yesterday, I went to two of them locally in town.

I buy their food - lots of food. I also happened to get a LEM meat grinder for $70 which retails for $550. Only missing two parts. Pics of the food below. Is some of it old? Yes, I only go back to 2019 even tho I have a few cans of things in my own pantry dated before then.
First pic: $30. (that is sugar in the vac pac bags).
Second: 50 cents for each tin.
Third: rice about $3
Fourth: lentils about $8

Meat grinder definate SCORE! 👍 My area rarely has an estate sale. Lotta military and that means transient every couple years. I've found a few and most are furniture, appliances, some garage, tools, etc. It's a great outlet if any around. 😊

WOW!! On the meat grinder!! Good buy on the food too. My meat grinder is a small cheap one I bought 30 some-odd years ago. Adequate, but I sure like yours better!

Fantastic deal on the meat grinder. LEM is a very good company, and I am sure you will be able to get replacement parts from them.
That is also good on the food. You don't see that around here much either. People don't put the food out for sale, they toss it in the dumpsters.

Here is where I go to find estate sales. The website actually send me an email a day before they start. One signs up with your em addy and your zip code. No muss, no fuss.
