Drinks on your cart

I get asked often where I get my sodas.  I use Coke, Diet Coke, Sprite, Water and sometimes Root Beer.  Here in TN, I have to offer Mountain Dew also.  It's a staple here.

You can find good deals at Sam's Club or Costco, but they are never really a super duper bargain.

I watch the sales papers from my local grocery stores.  I have been able to get the aforementioned can drinks for as low as .18 cents each, which I sell all my drinks except Root Beer at $1.00.  Root Beer in bottles: $2.00

About every two weeks the grocery stores will have sodas on sale.  If you watch close you will find they alternate, one week this store offers a deal, next week a different store.


I have seen them sell drinks that are about to expire.  I don't want these as I may hold 2 or 3 thousand cans I have bought over a 3 or 4 week period.  Sometimes even more.

Sometimes you can find a coupon that has no limit and you can use those for your purchase.  This is more rare, but you will occasionally run across a good coupon.

Hope that helps.  


  1. Thanks Ben, I've just suscribe to this blog and I know that you have probably spoken about this earlier, but where do you get your dogs? What kind are they?

  2. No problem, I get mine from Sam's Club called Bakers and Chefs All Beef, but I like to use Vienna sometimes also.
