When it comes to saving money smart shopping is key, be it at home or on the truck. But the additional challenge, when on the truck, comes with finding a truck friendly place to do the shopping that you can also save money!!
One place that many overlook is Dollar Tree!!! Hubby loves shopping at these cause price is predictable and easy to budget!!
Most all Dollar Tree's have a canned goods and dry goods section, but did you know that more and more of them have a refrigerated and frozen section as well?? While it is limited, we get chicken thighs, breakfast steaks, polish sausages, frozen veggies and frozen fruits, cheeses, milk, bread, and some single serving prepared meals there, as well as stock up on the canned goods (I love getting the canned beets, three bean salad and canned artichoke hearts there!!) and the boxed goods like pastas, rice. side dish envelopes, and cereals. As I love green tea, I can also get a box of 100 green tea bags for making my own iced green tea!!
We have found that a lot of the Dollar Trees are located in strip malls near Wal Marts, so it is easy to get to them. You can go into Google Maps and have it search for them based on your location, or access the store locator at this link...
Where do you find you can get your best bargains to cook on the truck??
Walmart Store Locators
Walmart's local managers are the ones who decide whether they are allowing truck parking or not. If you are not familiar in a town and/or have never been there before you can always call the store and ask them if you are allowed to park there so you won't get into trouble while trying to shop!
