I have something exciting to share about this week’s grocery haul!
Well, I posted that grocery haul on Youtube and didn’t think much of it. But now, 6 months later, “Dollar Tree meals” are my top search query on Youtube. Who knew this would be such a need?
It’s been on my heart for awhile, because I wasn’t sure whether I wanted to try something like this again. But the people are asking for it, so I shall deliver!
Once a month, I’m going to create three new Dollar Tree meals for you all. My goal is to spend $5.00 or less per meal, and have it be reasonably healthy for your family. I bought the food for it this week (Using my business money, so it’s not included in the grocery budget); so check my Instagram stories this week for a preview, and stay tuned until next week for a blog post/video!
