Pantry Stocking on the Cheap

Who wudda thunk?

That’s what I thunk when Denver’s Fox 31 producer contacted me in August with a novel proposition:  Join anchor Ken Clark on a grocery shopping trip to the dollar store and see how much money we can save.  I had no idea that dollar stores stocked food items beyond bags of snack foods and potato chips.  But I was open to a TV adventure to find out otherwise.

After a couple false starts that took us winding around south Denver we finally located the Dollar Tree store in Westminster.  It actually has quite a supply of canned and frozen items that make good pantry staples.

So we’ll be on Fox 31 Good Day Colorado tomorrow at the 9:00 hour.  Watch for tips on how to stock the pantry economically, but also with a little flair and fun.
