A woman says she only spends $35 a week buying groceries at the Dollar Tree

Because of the high prices, many people choose to buy most of their groceries at cheaper stores, like the Dollar Tree. And this plan seems to work very well, with someone named Rebecca Chobat, who claims that she only spends $35 per week, which would be $5 per day, on average.

Chobat has a TikTok account with more than 744,000 followers called Tree Dollar Meals, where he posts posts explaining how to make food cheap.

The woman reminds her audience that Dollar Tree offers a variety of fresh and frozen food items that start at $1.25.

Among these products you can find small blocks of cheese, milk, frozen fruits and vegetables, chicken nuggets and ice cream.

In addition, there are Dollar Tree branches that offer raw fish or chicken breast for $1.25, and ground beef for $3 and $5, in addition to canned goods.

Dishes Chobat often cooks to keep his budget low include tacos, chili, and salad. He also said that he cooks a lot of rice, beans, as well as canned chicken and fish, which are foods that are generally low in price.

Some of Chobat’s side dishes include chicken pot pie, meatloaf, dollar stick gumbo, sausage patties and gravy; and alfredo pasta with smoked sausage.

He also says that all dishes can be cooked in a slow cooker or in a regular oven.

Chobat said he opened his account so that low-income people could extend their accounts.

Because of her TikTok, Chobat said she lives alone, so she only cooks for herself. However, he says that most of the meals he prepares can feed three or four people, so his information is useful for families.

The woman said that she prefers to buy canned instead of protein, for example, pre-cooked chicken. This is especially useful for people who do not have space to refrigerate food.

“Many people who rent apartments, live in temporary housing, or have small apartments often have limited or no refrigeration space. This is because they can’t buy things in bulk. They can’t cook things in bulk and rely more on the pantry,” Chobat said, according to Business Insider. .

He said that a lot of TikTok users who tell him in the comments box of their videos share several recipes for meals that do not use frozen ingredients.
