Would you buy dented boxes of cake mix or out of season funfetti mixes at grocery store that sells them at a discount? They are all dented boxes or seasonal funfetti (they had Halloween, Valentine's and Christmas) NONE of them them are expired and the bags inside are not opened. Would you buy them?

If they're not expired, and the inner bag is not broken, I don't see why not.

If as you describe definitely yes!

I do it all the time, if they're half or more off.

It depends on how dented they are. If they looked like a car just ran over them then no, but if it is just a small dent on the side then maybe yes.

I think this is just a personal thing. I'm the type of person who always always look for perfect packaging.

Of course the expiration date should always be checked.

The more posts I see from you Rylan the more I think you are my long lost twin !

My daughter laughs at me because I go through about ten of every item I buy looking for the most perfect one, and I will never take the front package of anything I have to go about 3 in. Jars of pickles or peppers are the WORST I examine each jar to make sure they are the ones I want. Its an OCD thing for me.

My Mom won't let me go shopping with her anymore ... hahha

If they are not expired and the bag hasn't been compromised then should be fine.

Jamie, you probably are my long lost twin!

I never get the front products in the shelves--I usually pick the middle ones. I feel like a lot of people has already touched the front ones and so I wouldn't like it. Also, when I buy milk and eggs, I make sure I get the newest ones. I check the expiration date and check the ones that will last longer.

I really think it is an OCD thing. I mean I don't even use my hands to flush the toilet. hehe.

I think it's more like triplets! I'm the exact same too. I don't even open the doors with my hands. If I don't have a paper towel or something then I use the bottom of my shirt or my sleeve. I've even noticed my kids doing this. I think I'm going to end up raising kids like Niles from the show "Fraiser". icon_lol.gif

Same thing for me I feel like they have been touched too many times. I don't feel so bad about it now that i know I am not alone.

I always get the newest milk & eggs. I can NEVER set anything in the kid seat part of the cart cause their butts & diapers have been there. hahahah

I am a foot flusher and I can't touch restroom door knobs either...

I didn't know there are a lot of people like me here in CC!

Exactly, I don't EVER EVER open public restroom door knobs with my bare hands--I won't even touch the faucet, paper towel dispenser handle and stall doors.

I am also a foot flusher. Touching the flush handle is my worst nightmare.

I'm the same way in public bathrooms, I do my best to hold it so I don't even need to use them.
But I still would buy battered cake boxes. The case usually just got dropped by a forklift.
