This morning I have a few things that I need to pick up at a big box store. On the way to that store, there is a Dollar General. Today I’m going to be stopping at that Dollar General to pick up some items that I likely could also find at the big box store, but that I can save big on by shopping here!
KRAFT products have made their way into Dollar General stores, and the prices are smokin’ hot!
KRAFT for School Lunch Prep
The KRAFT line is particularly helpful as we head back into the school year and I have to start thinking about school lunches, as well as meal and snack ideas that are easy and delicious. On my shopping list today are the following:
- Maxwell House K-cups. They aren’t an iced coffee version, but these will be perfect for my afternoon coffee, which I can make about an hour in advance and get cooled down enough by the time I’m ready to drink it. Refueling for the second half of the day is critical for this working mama!
- PLANTERS nuts. Dollar General has a terrific selection of this line, and nuts provide a BIG energy boost. I love including them in Darah’s lunch to help her power through her day. They are also a healthy snack option for me (much better to reach for some almonds when hunger strikes than some chocolate chips!).
- CAPRI SUN Big Pouch. This will be the last year that Darah still comes home at lunch. But she LOVES getting to have a packed lunch when she gets home. It is hilarious! CAPRI SUN products are one of her favorite things to find in her lunch box, so it is time to get stocked up!
- A.1. Dry Rub. I have really come to realize that a good rub can make even the cheapest cuts of meat come alive with flavor. That’s good for my wallet! And bonus, these types of recipes usually do really well in the slow cooker (which is nearly effortless) or on the grill (I do the marinating and leave the cooking up to Tim!). Either way, it is easy for me! 🙂
Additionally, I’m going to check out the KOOL-AID LIQUID product, which is brand new, and available at Dollar General. I’m not sure yet if I’m going to buy it, but I am feeling tempted on account of the yummy sounding Frosty Strawberry Pops recipe I saw on the Dollar General site and that uses the product. I’ll decide if I want to go for it after I see it in person! You can find this recipe, as well as information on all KRAFT products at Dollar General online.
