What Should I Stock Up On at My Grocery Store's Big Sale?

Good Questions

Q: Rainbow Grocery, a store I like to frequent, has a 20% off everything sale once or twice a year. I've recently started saving cash for the next big one, and I was wondering what kind of items people would buy/stock up on/splurge if it were 20% off? I usually stock up on things like olive oils, pastas, wines, and other pricey and not so perishable items (bulk shampoo!). Rainbow's great because it's got a lot of harder to find specialty products. Any insight or thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
