We buy a lot of canned and boxed goods at Big Lots for about half their
retail price, sometimes less. Basically they are overstock and salvage
goods. There's just the two of us but we save substantial money doing
this. Check their prices and their goods. I wouldn't buy dented cans as
the tinning can spall off when they're dented. Same with boxes or
packaging that has tears.
