So….I’m back. I missed blogging, and couponing, and the coupon community. I don’t know about you, but for me couponing has been a challenge lately, with tighter coupon policies, and not as many high value coupons available, and the elimination of the Winn Dixie Coupon, we have had to look for more creative ways to supplement our grocery budget. Steve has started to garden (more on that later) and I have taken a closer look at what hidden treasures are at my local Dollar Tree.
Dollar Tree does take coupons, but I have not tried to use them there, as I have focused my attention on the frozen section, and some of the brands, shall we say, are a little obscure.
Some of the items I have purchased from the dollar store:
- Fingerling potatoes
- Frozen Fruit
- Pretzels (the soft ones, similar to Super-pretzel)
- Off the beaten path ice cream bars, AW, raspberry cream
- Garlic Toast (not Texas, but close enough)
- Big Burritos (BIG!)
Some things I see at the dollar store, but are scared to try:
- Ribeye steaks (yes, they are small, but they say ribeye!)
How about you? Would you shop for groceries at the Dollar Store?
