Hi there. My name is Elayne and I currently reside in the San Francisco Bay Area with my handsome husband and our 6 hungry children. Cooking for a family of 8 on a daily basis is expensive and I frequent various dollar stores for food items to supplement our family meals. Over the years I have been able to tame my food budget by making many meals with dollar store products. Just because the items are cheap doesn't make the meals are. When I add my love to the dollar products, they taste like gourmet meals, and you can do the same.
* items with astericks may not have been purchased at a dollar store but cost $1 or less.
