I recently found that my local Dollar Tree carries high quality brand name frozen foods. I got Green Giant steam in the bag vegetables for a dollar a pack, which is much less expensive than at my local supermarket. They also have garlic bread, Italian ice, and waffles. I checked to make sure they were not from a shady second rate place, or iffy foreign country. The quality has been every bit as good as what I get at the market.
You can get the same products at the supermarket much cheaper using manufacturer's coupons!
Yes you are right about the dollar stores. I found roasted red peppers and sun dried tomatoes for $1.00 a jar. Compare that to grocery store prices even with a coupon.
Ours carries them also, but the sizes are smaller, so it really isn't that much (if any) cheaper than buying the full size at the grocery store.
I bought Mrs. Smith's pumpkin pie at the Dollar Tree. One box even had a $1.00 coupon on it to use somewhere else.
I too love the things you can get at the Dollar Tree now!
I buy Talapia fish. It's small, sure, but for a main dish for lunch?? Perfect!!
I also buy Salmon in a Teriyaki sauce that is really good. I buy corn, olives, coffee, marinated mushrooms and more in the dry isle.
And when I can buy Hormel 8 pack sausage for 1.00 and it's 1.98 at Winco, 2.07 at Walmart, 2.45 at Safeways and 2.98 at Freddys...then no, I can't buy it cheaper, even with a coupon.
