Shopping in the land of the Amish.

Today here in Ohio is a rainy day. Not that I don't like rainy days, because I do, especially when we need the rain. Geez, what am I saying, I don't even know "if" we need rain, but I still enjoy a rainy day. It is such good sleeping weather. Anyway the rain is a nice slow rain, so I decided what the heck, I might as well go do some shopping in the land of the Amish.

First I went to the Bent & Dent to get some groceries but today, was kinda disappointing. They didn't have a lot of different stuff. I did spend $25 and got a lot of stuff. I love going there, things are so cheap. I can buy Fruit by the Foot for $1.10 a box and brand name veggies for .35 each. (Oh, I see some sunshine!) I am trying to think what all I got there. Let's see, I got some pound cake, Fruit by the Foot, spaghetti sauce, pretzels, salmon dog treats, Hershey's Bliss candy (for the kiddos treats) and a few other things.

Fruit by the Foot Flavor Kickers,Tropical Twist, 4.5-Ounce Boxes (Pack of 6)

Did I just say kiddo treats? Whoa, they are not animals. I just try to bribe them sometimes with chocolate. It is amazing how fast 3 year olds will pick up toys for some chocolate. What have we done to our kiddos??

So, back to my day of shopping. After I went to the Bent & Dent, I went to Yoder's Bulk Foods store and got some yummy cheese. I got some hot pepper, smoked cheddar, sharp cheddar (my favorite) and butter cheese and some gummi butterflies. Yep, gummi butterflies. Have you ever heard of such a thing? I was hoping for some gummie bears but all they had was sill butterflies. Their cheese is so cheap it's only like $2.50 to $3.25 per pound, you can't beat that.

Then after that we found a new store today. It's called Ridge View Surplus & Tent Rental. It is a new store and had a lot of different things from an assortment of springs to baby strollers. I think I am going to go back out after I get paid and get this Pack-n-Playard with the bassinet (below) for $55. That is a great deal. Also they had strollers with the infant car seats that attach for like only $80. Some things of course are junk but other things aren't. It's a basic surplus store. I will definitely go back there again.

All three of these stores are close together and it seemed like everywhere we went we would see the same people at all three places.



  1. I haven't been to the new store.. I love going to Yoders,they have the best buys on cheese... well the other store has good deals on cheese too.. I love the pepper cheese at Yoders.. You will have to let me know where the new surplus store is and I will have to check it out.
