Sharon, the soda pop I'm talking about is the store brand stuff. Coke, Pepsi, etc. cost 50 cents to $1.00 in the stores machines (depending on size of can/bottle.) Safeway in the NW raised their price last year from 2 cents to 3 cents, and in San Diego, I can't find any pop in store machines for less than 50 cents
You thrift store and garage-sale shoppers, I'm with you. It's a great way to find real treasures at bargain prices and promote re-use of stuff (minimize the need for landfills) at the same time. For clothing, dishes, books, and a lot of household goods and tools, I buy almost exclusively second-hand.
