I used to be an avid Big Lots shopper. I will admit for the last 3 yrs while living in Georgia, I slacked off. The stores were either too far away or were so gross they made my skin crawl. Well, living back in Chicago, I have re-established my Big Lots love. There is one nearby, that I am in love with the deals. For example, Propel Water for 70 cents (bear with me folks, I'm trying to kick the Diet Coke habit, okay who am I kidding, let's say lessen the quantity consumed) I also stocked up on Johnson's Head to Toe Wash for 99 cents, which is a total godsend when your kids have sensitive skin. So that's what's working for me these days - Big Lots!
