Post Christmas sales for supplies!greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) Preparation Forum : One Thread
For those who are well-prepared but would like a little "oomph" for their stash: don't forget all those lovely after-Christmas sales. We had to go to Eckerd Drugs Christmas Day afternoon and found among the Christmas frou-frou tins of cookies, boxes of candy, and "gourmet" coffee and food gift boxes, all at half-price. The tins of cookies are especially appropriate for storing. Must check out our local Kerr Drugs in the morning--it was closed today.

Our K-Mart supplement features water on the front page. Three gallons for a couple of dollars.

Eagle Hardware had a full page ad today for Y2K supplies, showing kerosene heaters, propane, BBQ propane grills, insulation, etc.
Went to Kmart (got a $50 gift cert!), 1/2 price on gift boxes with canned ham, cheeses, beef sticks (about $4). Nice winter boots that are lined = $14 and much more! It was great.
