    Used food? Wouldn't that be like...shit?

    Also, forget about buying anything new with a warranty. If it still works when you get your used junk home - be thankful.

    That is what goodwill and Salvation army is all about.

    Quite a lot of rich people shop there as well. People on small incomes need to manage their money well, but liberals have an issue with the concept of intelligent money management.

    Pardon me if I quote your signature on this.

    There is a store that specializes in damaged freight.

    The carton has a couple dented cans and the store can get a case for pennies, and they mark it way up, but still half what you pay at regular stores.

    Seriously, one doesn't buy flank steak on a rice income.

    Used food? That's ridiculous. We do buy damaged packages. You can get half off on cereal when a box is damaged, like somehwhat crushed .

    My wife and I are not poor and we look for good used stuff in garage and yard sales and GoodWill. It's smart to look for bargains. A family can raise their standard of living by doing that. Most of the books we buy are used.

    I repeat, from the OP, Herman said "used food" - not dented cans or expired shelf life - USED. I only know of one way for food to be "used"...

    I know what Herman is telling the poor: Eat Shit.
