DOLLAR TREE HAUL 2020 | BEST GROCERIES ON A BUDGET!Jun 10, 2021
Hi guys, I'm Sarah, welcome back to the channel. I hope everyone does amazingly. Today's video is our favorite video and that's a
treeuh but this is a grocery
tree. I'm here to share all the food I bought. Dollar Tree My next video is going to be a full day of eating only Dollar Tree food so I wanted to make a purchase so I can share with you what I bought for that and there's a ton of really amazing food. articles if you haven't tried dollar tree food. I hope this video gives you an idea of what they have and what they are introducing because they are really adding some amazing new healthy things that I am very excited about.
About, I've been trying to find some inexpensive recipes to share in that video, so I'm not going to just throw together things that are already made, we're going to try to find things that you can buy at your regular grocery store or you can buy at the Dollar Tree and enjoy good meals not only for yourself but also for your family, so I hope you enjoy it, if you do, please like, subscribe to the channel before you go. and without further ado let's start with what excited me the most so I don't know if I should do the whole song and dance to what excited me the most: rice with cauliflower and broccoli, you know you're old when I'm excited about some rice with broccoli and cauliflower, so this one is from the tj farms brand.
They are vegetables with rice, cauliflower and broccoli. I buy this at the supermarket. It comes in a packet, it has olive oil and peppers, so I want to try making a The dollar tree version is so good when cooked on the stove, kind of crispy, tastes just like rice. I haven't tried this brand so I'm excited to try it and we'll give it a try. and I do reviews and all those things that I do all day long eating videos, so I'm excited about that same brand too, tj farm select, we have chopped spinach leaves. This was the first time I saw this, it looks pretty good the size of the bag is nice, it's microwave safe.
I don't have a microwave so I never microwave anything, so if you microwave it sometimes it's a little more soggy. I would definitely recommend putting this in a recipe or something. Sometimes the dollar tree greens can be soggy, so this is the same brand, it just looks different, it's the broccoli cuts. I'm not really a big fan of this style of broccoli because it usually has a lot of stems, but if you're just making it for one meal, I guess it's okay, so let's get over that and then I also saw this one: the seasoning mix, onion, celery, red and green pepper and parsley, will be fantastic for this soup that I am going to prepare.
I'm so excited that Sarah is getting a little sassy Sarah is sassy because I went to get Dollar Tree shrimp, so we're going to use this. I have never had Dollar Tree shrimp. This is cooked shrimp served thawed. It is from the crescent tide brand that I bought. three packs of them because there's not much, I guess three servings, you know, would be good for my little family of four. I call it three and a half because Quincy is very picky, so it's really like three and a half people, but this is completely it. cooked, they're like these little ones, so we're going to use this somehow.
A good meat option that I have bought many times at Dollar Tree are the genius turkey burgers, so I bought four of those because they are for one meal, but the good thing about this is that it's just ground turkey, that's it, it's turkey ground with a little bit of paprika, I think so, okay, so it's Turkish, it's ground turkey and then rosemary extract and salt, so definitely be careful if you're salting. your recipe, but you can use this like you would ground turkey, it weighs 5.33 ounces so I have four and you get a good amount, it's not small and when you cook it and cut it up, it tastes just like ground turkey. you can use it in taco recipes, you can make it with spaghetti sauce if you're on a tight
budgetor if it's just for one person, if I was like one person the dollar tree is where I would find a lot of food.
Because they are smaller ounces, you don't get as much as when you go to the grocery store, but you don't have to pay as much either, so a person could have one of these for a meal and that's it. you need it, but we have four for the family. I also bought one of the giant cheese ravioli. I feel like I've tried them before. I'm not sure, but you can never go wrong with ravioli. The last frozen thing I have is from Jimmy. Dean, they are the original sausage links, there are a couple of different versions of sausages that have like the circular ones.
Here are six small links, perfect for one person, perfect for my two kids, as I'll normally split them in half and cook them on the stove. and they like them, so that's what they go to have for breakfast a long time ago. I made a video about Dollar Tree cheese, how they sell a ton of different versions of Dollar Tree cheese, some of them in slices, some of them in shreds. but none of it was like real cheese, it didn't say cheese on there, they couldn't really advertise it as cheese. I did a whole thing where I set it on fire.
I'll link that video below if you want to watch it. super old, so please bear with me, you know, the older the videos, the worse the quality, the weirder I am, so if you want to see it, it's still there, um, but they've added some different ones, this one is cheese with lake view. mild cheddar cheese is real cheddar cheese the only thing that worries me about this cheese is the expiration date. I'm thinking how can it be good until February 2021. It's like six months away. I don't really know, but we're going to try it. I pulled out and then I got this one in cheddar cheese and then I got this one in mozzarella.
This is low moisture mozzarella cheese, just pasteurized milk, cheese culture, salt enzymes like literal cheese, so this is a very good option if you have a
budgetto try this. This expires in March
2020, what am I going to do? I have to check my other cheese. I don't know how long it lasts. I don't normally review it, but let's give it a try and then I got one of the vitamins too. d milk this is ultra pasteurized I think this means it's whole milk but I'm going to use this in a recipe I also bought some eggs these are medium eggs a dozen eggs for a dollar not a bad deal I was I'm very happy with That, sometimes when you're lucky, you can find real butter there.
I have been able to find just one stick of butter for a dollar, which is a good deal. I would have preferred it, but they didn't have it, so I had to spread this imperial vegetable oil. I'm not a big fan of this as a margarine. I prefer regular butter, but we're going to work with what we have so we can get it for a dollar, not bad, so you know. What I mean is that you could eat eggs, butter, cheese, all those little things for just a couple of dollars. I think it's perfect to share this with people who are in college.
These are all college-friendly things that you can get on a budget and actually have real meals. I see a lot, I never went to college, so I support anyone who has, but I see a lot of people always say, oh, all I eat is ramen. I'm like, yeah, you could eat ramen or you could go to the dollar tree and eat. As a decent meal, it won't be super healthy, but I think it's definitely better than ramen for dinner every night, so definitely get the butter at the dollar tree if you're in a pinch, some of my dollar trees have really good ones. bread sections and some of them don't, but the ones that do have a decent bread selection have these bagels from I don't know what Ellie's said, I'm thinking, but they're simple, I think they have raisins and cinnamon.
You get four bagels. Here for a dollar, which is a pretty decent deal, but I like having them. You can put them in the freezer if you need to make a quick breakfast sandwich and then you can take them out and it's just a way to preserve them. Here is one of Marie Calendar's blueberry muffin mixes. I'm not sure if I'm going to do this, but I wanted to try it because I really love Marie Calendar. I think it has good things like prepared foods and stuff, but I'm excited to try this and see what it's like.
I also bought Harvest Hill Pancake and Waffle Mix, Complete Buttermilk Mix. Now I hate syrup. I don't recommend buying the syrup, but I want to try this because I can make waffles with the waffle. manufacturer, so I'm going to make that for the kids and then I bought just regular pure sugar cane. I love this one because it's not bleached, it's like sugar. I would consider it raw sugar if you had that. It's not as thick, but it has that touch of brown sugar. Is really nice. I bought one of these very large, ultra-thin pizza doughs.
This is from Golden Home. They now have them in a small, personal-sized version. this one weighs 4.75 ounces and has all the little holes so you know I've been doing it right if you don't know I've been making pizza at home and I feel like I make a really good pizza so I'm excited to try this to see how it goes compare and also bought Pantry Essentials pizza sauce that I have tried. I've used this before on kids pizza when I make them here and they like it so let's use this. and the sauce to make a grilled pizza.
I also have one more frozen item. It's from Baker's Best. They are baked soft pretzels. I've made this in a recipe before, but we're going to make some cinnamon sugar pretzels that my kids like. I enjoy them, so let's use this. They get six for a dollar here which is pretty good and they are a decent size. They're not bad, so I bought them. If you've tried them, let me know. I have some snacks I want to show off, so this is from Metro Deli. You get three packets of kettle cooked crisps. I've never tried them before, but they look pretty good, so I'm excited to try them.
I have a little thing. the goldfish my kids were obsessed, they love goldfish and this one is a pretty decent size. I feel like the box has gotten a little bigger, four ounces for a dollar, which isn't really a good deal because you can get them if you find goldfish on sale. They are super cheap but literally the worst deal on cereal is this dollar tree version but I want to make this popcorn mix and we need some kind of cereal so I bought this 3.5 ounce one for a dollar. I just don't feel like it. It's a fantastic deal, but these are the honey nut cheerios.
My husband is a big fan of nut energy mix, so every time I go there, I buy it for him. This one has honey roasted peanuts, honey roasted sesame sticks, almonds, walnuts, walnuts, so. It has that kind of sugary flavor and I like a sugary mix. I also bought this one, this is the pick of the island. Honey roasted peanuts. These are also salty and then I think it's an amazing deal. Jolly Time Yellow Popcorn, you get just what it says. A one pound four ounce bag of raw popcorn kernels, you can butter them yourself, you can sauté them yourself, or you can do whatever you want with them, but it's fun to do it old school style with the lid on and everything, so we.
I will make this and use it in the mix instead of buying the individual bags because remember I don't have a microwave and I enjoy this popcorn. I've tried them many times, so here's the dime. stixx brand of pretzels, you get 12 ounces for a dollar, it's like the tiny little pretzels. I wouldn't be me if I didn't go to the Dollar Tree and buy candy, so I bought watermelon and sour patch butter fingers, these are so good I love them. I like these very, very much, so this was the first time I saw this brand of croutons, maybe I overlooked it and haven't gotten it, but I wanted to try it, they are cheese and sesame croutons, they sound pretty good.
I don't think I'm going to use it in what I eat in a day, but I'm going to use it in a salad and then we have the domino light brown sugar, we'll use it to make overnight oats. maple brown sugar um overnight oats and I really enjoy getting this at Dollar Tree I always like confectioners sugar there I buy this. They have regular boxes of sugar. I'm not sure you can tell me if it's smaller than the size. comes to the supermarket because it's a pound of sugar, which seems pretty reasonable for a dollar, so let me know I have two things of chicken broth, this is from Kendall Farm.
I hope I said right, this is just the natural chicken broth with no added msg and no gluten. I got two of those for a soup recipe. I got one thing of whole kernel sweet corn from Green Giant and then we got two things of prego garlic and herb pasta sauce, so that's two of those. They are 18.5 ounces each, so I think it will be a good amount of sauce for what I eat in a day. I have this alkaline water, it's alka-65, it has alkaline water and electrolytes, so it restores and hydrates, so there we are.
I'm going to drink that during the day. I also saw this kind of package of dry cranberry ginger ale mix to go. I've never tried this before but I really like ginger ale so I'm excited to try it so we'll try it in the video and then I love teafrozen. I'm a big iced tea drinker. So this is from Lipton. It's iced tea with lemon. I'll put it in a jar. We will try it. It's good for a dollar. not bad, so I'm not sure what I'm going to do with my morning coffee, so I decided to buy the Nest coffee, uh, tasters' choice instant coffee, maybe we could make whipped coffee, but just in case, i got the elmaro coffee just the regular espresso this is a good coffee its a coffee i have hadmany times you can use this to make cold brew it has a bitter taste thats why i buy stoke pre brewed cold brew because i dont really enjoy that bitter taste. flavor, so tomorrow we could have hot coffee, if we want cold coffee, we'll do that for my creamer, I have the French vanilla coffee mate, this is like a little eight ounce personal size to go, keep it in your car. keep it on your desk you'll never run out of cream and then I also bought lemon juice this is from Riverton Orchards lemon juice from 100 concentrate juice with added ingredients so it has lemon juice lemon oil yeah it's That's why I never enjoy this flavor.
Because it doesn't taste like real lemon, I enjoy this for cleaning if you haven't tried using lemon juice in your cleansing routine, if you want to make it more natural, lemon juice is good, something I love getting from Dollar. The tree is the spices that they have been adding in so many different ones, they have so many to choose from, don't sleep on the spices in the dollar tree, so I bought quite a few, this is my favorite, it's the garlic pepper seasoning, so inside It has salt, garlic, black pepper, black pepper, oregano and sugar. This seasoning is like one of the
It simply has everything in one. I really enjoy it, so if you haven't tried it, I also have this salt. free condiments and these are supreme tradition in this one they have granulated garlic chopped onion orange peel black pepper citric acid crushed red parsley flakes and lemon oil is not bad and then this one really excited me, it's from Kingsford but the brand is badia I hope That's right, if I messed up, I'm sorry, but it's called Cajun Style All-Purpose Seasoning, Classic Louisiana Hot. Here they have garlic, onion, paprika, salt and they don't tell you about all the others.
I guess they don't want you to take their secret recipe, but I love this one. They have one that's like red lobster relish. They have quite a few at Dollar Tree. If you go there, pick them up. They are good and I see them in him. regular grocery store too so we'll have to try this in our soup and I'll let you know if I like it so I bought two different versions of chicken broth because I didn't actually read this and I didn't know. What the heck it was, but I knew I liked the Goya brand.
I don't even know if we still support Goya. Let me know I'm not sure about that anyway so this is the chicken powder guy and then I just got these. regular cubed instant boy look this is pompo brand so any of them can be used in a soup and it's like a good base to add to and give it that hearty flavor, I'm literally a big chef. professional, I know everything and I am eloquent and amazing, so thank you, follow all my advice. I'm being sarcastic if you can't tell, okay, in supreme tradition, you can't beat minced garlic for a dollar, it's good.
To have it, I'm sure it's not the
bestquality, but the pieces are a little thicker than I would like, but hey, for a dollar, it's not bad. We also have some Texas Pete hot sauce. We need this for a recipe. As I have seen this in the supermarket many times, you can make your own buffalo chicken wings, all you need is the hot sauce and the butter, and boom, you have chicken wing sauce and then we also have this parmesan cheese. This is probably the only one I would recommend purchasing because it is better quality.
It's in a smaller container. You only get 2.5 ounces. It's not the best quality grated cheese on the market, but in a pinch, when you're on a budget, this is it. I'm going to do the trick, so those were all the foods I bought from the dollar tree. I know it's random, but you have to go back and look at the entire day eating only dollar tree food to see how it all comes together. I hope this video inspired you to go look at your dollar tree to see what you can find.
