Shop At The Dollar Store

This Sparked Me!

My husband and I do most of our shopping at the dollar store. This includes fruits and vegetables. We buy beans and brown rice from the bulk bins at the local discount grocery store. That leaves a very few items left to buy at the regular grocery store.

    My husband and I do this as well. We get Nature's Own and Sunbeam bread, Del Monte spaghetti sauce, tortillas...all for $1, versus $2-$5 elsewhere.

    Sounds like you have a wonderful Dollar Store! I will have to scope out our food buys. Our's doesn't have fresh fruit or veggies. Bummer.

    Yes I love the dollar store. However not all dollar stores are created equally. We just moved and the one buy our new house is sucky.

UGH
