Food Co-op Section


Isn't it a shame to see nice furniture being thrown out? Once it gets rained on, it may be ruined. But there's a better way to get rid of usable old furniture. In addition to some thrift shops, A Wider Circle will pick up furniture. A Wider Circle steams fabric items for sanitation, so they can even provide mattresses to those who need them. Check out their amazing showroom at 2:40 into the video.

 Food Co-ops:

Food co-ops are run as non-profit businesses. They are there to serve the community. You can generally either join the co-op and save more, or just shop without being a member and still get good prices. Food co-ops usually have a good bulk food section, which is a good way to save money.
