At 9:00 AM, a whistle blew, and all the shoppers raced into the middle to start grabbing their items. Many of them had arrived early to strategically place themselves near items they wanted to grab.
The four of us were able to fill 2 boxes quite full, and we got a lot of good stuff! Dad and Nora arranged everything in the boxes so that we could fit as much as possible.
We loaded our boxes into the back of my dad's truck to take them home.
This was our portion of the food. We got lots of salad dressing, mayonnaise, mustard, and fruit roll-ups. We also got a bag of bread flour, some corn muffin mixes, soft taco shells, peanut butter, jelly, beef broth, crackers, and a few other odds and ends. We definitely got our money's worth and a little entertainment as well!
