Dollar Stores for Food?

If you are or have been a dollar store or 99 cent store eater, please tell us about it.

For myself, I really like their teas, sardines and tuna and I have even gotten organic vegetables there! They also have peanut butter, cheese, coffee…lots of stuff you can get at a grocery store. They have tons of candy and soda too but I try to stay away from those.

I prefer organic food, but I can’t always get it so I’m glad to know these types of stores are around.

Please tell me what you like at these stores.

    Its funny you mentioned that. My job asked me to go to dollar tree to pick up some items and I bought for myself 11 cans of their food. Sandy the terror was coming and I wanted to stock up in case. I bought Yams ,olives potatoes green beans and a can of cat food. Not for me but Mr Kitty. Yams were good. I added sea salt and threw them in the fry pan. I havent tasted anything else yet but will update.

  2. Grocery store food:

    When I was traveling across country I’d go to the grocery store and get like 2 slices of roast beef, 2 slices of cheese and a container of yogurt.

    99 cent store

    Tuna and crackers in a container
    1 premade salad
    1 tin of blueberries


    A lot of times in the food aisle have GREAT clearance deals. They have nuts 2 for $1 and many other things you could eat for damn cheap. CVS also has what they call a green card. If you buy stuff 3 days in a row and there is NO minimum, so purchase could be .25, the next day you get a $1 off Rewards card. You could use that dollar to buy nuts, seeds, or a small box of crackers to go with tuna.
