Melissa’s Dollar Store Trip (Eggos, Yogurt & More)


Did you shop recently? Melissa shopped at the Dollar Store ($.99 store) again this week and took a picture of her trip.

Although many of you grab deals at other stores, it has been rather hard lately to find stuff in stock – so a weekly visit has been on her list for the last few weeks. She managed to score everything from Bagels, to Eggos, Yogurt, Tortillas & much more.

thanks, Melissa!
