Bakery outlet: Healthful, inexpensive bread
I love high-quality bread with a variety of grains and seeds, yet I rarely take the time to make yeast bread and I find grocery store prices slightly ridiculous. Several years ago, I accidentally discovered our local bakery outlet. I've grown to love that place. I am regularly delighted to walk out with delicious bread at a very reasonable price. (Large loaves are usually $1.25-1.33, though I've gotten them for $1.00.)
Many of the other bakery items are standard junk food (and overpriced at that), but their bread is enough to keep me coming back.
It may take some creativity to find out if there's a bakery outlet in your area. Look in the yellow pages, ask friends, check with your local grocery store, do a google search.
Something else that I like about my bakery outlet is their discount punch card. I get it initialed each time I make a purchase, and eventually I'll get $5 of free bread.
