7 grocery staples you should buy from the dollar store

By the end of the year, if you save just $10 a week on average, you will have $520 in your pocket.

Herbs And Spices

A 6.5-ounce bottle costs $1 at Family Dollar, while a smaller bottle (5.37 ounces) costs $2.59 at Target.

Coconut Milk

Shelf-stable canned coconut milk may give curries, soups, desserts, sauces, and other foods a rich, creamy flavour.


When you compare a 4-pack of Juicy Juice at Dollar Tree to a 32-count bulk purchase at Walmart, which costs $27.80, the 4-pack at Dollar Tree is a fantastic offer for just $1.25.


While a generic 15-ounce can of beef chilli costs $1.63 at Walmart, an all-beef version costs just $1.25 at Dollar Tree.

Dried Rice

Rice at the dollar store is typically far less expensive than rice at other places, regardless of whether you choose sushi rice, basmati rice, brown rice, or white rice.


At Walmart, a 32-ounce bag of Great Value pinto beans costs $1.98, which is $0.73 more than what you'd pay at Dollar Tree.


Kitchen and outdoor barbeque mainstays include mustard and ketchup. Even name-brand products frequently cost less at the dollar store.
