Probably every big city in this fine country has a Dollar Store.
Whether you like them or not, you can get some great deals at those types of stores.
OPTION 1: FROZEN VEGGIES
Yep, I’ve checked the back of the packages. Just vegetables. Nothing else. They actually have a bit of selection too!
OPTION 2: SARDINES
Before you think, “EEEEEEW, gross!” Give these things a whirl. They’re not salty like anchovies, and they’re packed with healthy fat and protein. They fit easily in your purse or glove box. They’re actually pretty filling, and low in calories. Eat an apple afterwords to clean up that fish breath, and you have a perfect snack!
OPTION 3: SPICES
Spices and herbs are expensive. Not at the $1 store. There are a lot of options too! Using seasoning instead of sugary sauces adds lots flavor without the extra calories.
OPTION 4: GREETING CARDS
Wait, what?!?! Have you ever sent anyone a nice note just because you were thinking of them? Who doesn’t LOVE getting a card in the mail? And, it probably made you feel good to send it, right? Showing gratitude is a great way to be more healthy!
