After Christmas 2006, I found Nestles toll house chips (most were chocolate chip) on sale and bought 83 12oz bags. I always store my chips in the freezer, so I had fresh chips that lasted all of 2007.

Wow, that's a lot of chocolate chips!!!!  That must've been a REALLY good sale. 

I can't even imagine using 83 bags in one year!  Of course Nancy may use that many lol.

H.M., I was thinking the same thing about Nancy using that many bags of chips. I'm using more over these 8 months while my son is deployed. I send him "care packages" every 2 weeks. I should count up how many bags of chips I've used so far...and pounds of flour, sugar and butter. lol

I buy the 72 oz bags at Costco.  Of course the only flavor that you can get is semi sweet, so I look for sales for other flavors.

I wonder how very very old posts like this get dredged up.  The start of this was in September 2008 then nothing on the post until October 2011 then after 2011 nothing until September 2012. 
I sure wish there was a way that VBB could archive old posts.  We could still read them if needed but would have to start a new conversation if we wanted to add anything to it.

How about it VBB is there a way to archive old posts?

Yeah!  They finally started making big bags of peanut butter chips!  We found them at Sam's Club.  I go through them quickly because I make an energy mix that uses a cup of them!

I wonder if they aren't bringing up the old ones because we don't post enough?  LOL.  Seriously, you're right Nikki.  There should be a way to archive the ones from past years.

Did anyone else notice that was the only post from that person? I guess some members do not notice the date when they see a post. In 2006 the prices were lower so at 1/2 off it was a good deal, but it could have been 75% off (oh I miss the good ol days of clearance sales & triple coupons).

You could be correct about bringing them up.  I know I have not been posting as much.  I guess I should get busy and post some recipes.  Now that we are heading into the cooler months I will search for some "Autumnal" type recipes.  Although there may not be the "glut" of apples this year and what there is may be pretty expensive thanks to the heat and lack of moisture.
