This haul was SO much fun! It came from four different places, and several of the deals are still up and running so you can DUPLICATE them if it is an item that you need for your stockpile!  This haul added up VERY quickly and by the time I hit my last store, I had accumulated 88 items for a grand total of around $8!  That made each individual item only $.09, which is a GREAT stock up price for me!
