Crash & Burn Items

Crash & Burn is a term coined by one of Carol's sons, who writes the CT on a Budget blog. 

Her son used it to describe the dented and discounted canned goods that his Mother was buying one day and the term stuck. 

I liked it so much that I decided to adopt it for myself. 

Here is a picture of my recent Crash and Burn items:

The list includes such items as:

- 15 ounce can asparagus spears - 42 cents
-  (2) 15 ounce cans potatoes - 50 cents each
-  (2) 15 ounce canisters bread crumbs - 90 cents each
- 19 ounce can Old El Paso Enchilada Sauce- $1.20
- 15 ounce can cream style corn - 29 cents
- 28 ounce can crushed tomatoes - 90 cents
- 26 ounce can spaghetti sauce - 60 cents
- 20 ounce box Kellogg Raisin Bran - $1.00
 Also, not pictured are three cans of petite diced tomatoes that I picked up for 33 cents each. They are not in the picture because I already used them in Friday night's dinner of Chili Tacos. 

Not all grocery stores have a dented can section, but it might be worth it to you to check and see if they do. I know for myself that I've saved some money over the years by shopping in this section of the store.
