Think About What You're About to Eat From Big Lots

Posted By on Mon, Oct 31, 2011 at 12:00 PM

Think. Think about what you're about to eat from Big Lots.
  • Think. Think about what you're about to eat from Big Lots.

Times are tough. No doubt about that. The economic free fall explains why there's a new discount or closeout store every single half-block.

While it might be tempting to purchase reduced-price food along with off-brand electronics, Delta Burke-brand lingerie, plastic garden gnomes, toy tie-ins from last year's movies and Conway Twitty CDs, it behooves you to think. Think. Think think think about what you're shopping for.

Do you really want to ingest food purchased from a corporation that has done so much to make a great Aretha Franklin song nearly unbearable?

Honestly, there's probably absolutely nothing wrong with these goods we found at a local Big Lots during one shopping trip. While we're worrying about deeply discounted foodstuffs, people get sick every day from fresh, healthy foods like spinach and cantaloupe.

But panicking is so much fun.
