Don't Overlook The Dollar Store
So I don't get much from the dollar stores as we can often save more using coupons elsewhere. I do swear by their gift bags though. Great variety and serve their purpose.
But I also pick up a few random food items when I happen to notice them. I use garlic and onion just about every evening. And while fresh is great, I have to admit that a jar of minced garlic (it's just garlic in water) is super duper convenient. I've been out for a while and finally saw jars in my favorite dollar store the other day. So I bought three! I also picked up a jar of salsa. I've never bought it there before and doubt I would ever use it with chips as a dip. But I figure its a good staple to have on hand to add into foods. I go through salsa like water so this is worth a try.
