Was it ribeye steak flavored canned milk or did they actually milk a ribeye steak?

You can milk anything with nipples

There are a few worthwhile things at Dollar Tree, but I wouldn't make a habit of eating their food regularly.

However, for cleaning and household products they're great. I don't need name-brand bleach or window cleaner. My dish soap doesn't need to be a luxury item. A $1 broom works just as well as the $5 brooms at Walmart. A $1 bucket holds soapy water the same as the $7 bucket at Meijer.

Well, if chocolate milk is chocolate flavored milk, then this must be  steak-flavored milk.

I'm still a bit bothered by the fact that the steak has nipples

Dollar Tree has good fudge stripe cookies.  Just as good as Keebler and less than half the price.

My then-fiance and I bought vases for table centerpieces for our wedding reception at Dollar Tree.  Ordered a couple cases online, had it shipped to the store.  $1ea versus $5ea at Michael's.

They're small, thin (~1/4") steaks. Perfect for frying and sticking in a sandwich.

No worse than the sh*t at Walmart.
 
2013-08-16 09:59:26 PM
Pickles, sardines, olives, cookies, 3 bean salad and green beans (69 cents).

That's about it, except for the dollar 20 oz Dew at check out.  About 60 cents less than at a gas station.

/ then it's off to Aldi

Do you think that they throw away the leftover parts from when they cut the good portions of steak?

Google "meat glue"

In a nutshell, pieces of good portions glued together.  Problem is that you have to cook them well done as bacteria is prevalent in the glued areas as opposed to just the outside of the steak.

Yes. Yes you do. I've bought dollar store beach twice. It's not bleach like Clorox or even some store brand. Is it a potable liquid? Not sure. But it's not bleach. Would I drink it? Eh...no. But it's useless as a cleaner/disinfectant.

Aldi rules. Where I used to live, I could do 2 weeks worth of groceries in 20 minutes flat, at about half the price of a regular grocery store. Unfortunately, they don't have one in my current area.

I have become a dollar store enthusiast, tho.

Most of the "Dollar stores" here carry name brands right next to the cheap stuff.

Hey, their imitation shrimp is much better than the .99 cent stores.

One of the four Dollar Trees in my area carries Nature's Own honey wheat bread. It is the same loaf that sells for $3.59 at the grocery stores in my neighborhood, but it is a buck.

As the article says, it's all about picking the winners when it comes to dollar stores, and doing the math on the price in order to compare it to grocery store prices.
 
2013-08-16 10:10:23 PM
$.99 near me has a lot of the same fresh veggies and fruits for up to 1/3 the price you can get at the other supermarkets plus some more exotic stuff I normally wouldn't try like cacti.  Of course, the downside of shopping there you have to associate with hispanics and asians.  The horrors.

"The $1 rib eye steak was tender with a deep, meaty flavor. Maybe it was the up to 30 percent "enhancing solution." Or the pineapple-based tenderizer."

NO. JUST NO. For starters pineapple juice (and other citrus juices) do NOT tenderize meat, they turn it into mush by breaking down the meat itself. And secondly, there is no way in hell I'd buy something that was "pre-marinated" as god knows what went into it or when.

Havent shopped at  a dollar tree for a while but I should. Big Lots used to carry small pizza crusts 2/ .50. And smoked oysters for 1 , sometimes 1.50. At the market, they are 3 bucks a can. Andy Capps hot fries for 65 cents .

Luddite. You're supposed to 3D print these items now. In a year, you'll have paid for the 3D printer and have so many brooms and buckets you can pile them to the Moon and colonize it.

If you don't believe this, may I just point out that a scientist was wrong once, and computers?

Dollarama is great for getting various little plastic cases for RC boat parts. Yay!

Aldi. Where else can you buy a shopping cart for a quarter? I usually get two and had them out to the bums down on East Ave to ferry their bags of returnables down to the new Wegmans.

Threw a party, went to dollar store for paper plates, etc. Remembered at the store that I needed some yellow mustard, so grabbed some generic stuff there - best damn yellow mustard I've ever had.

Bumblefark: Aldi rules. Where I used to live, I could do 2 weeks worth of groceries in 20 minutes flat, at about half the price of a regular grocery store.


Last thing I bought at Aldi was a petrol strimmer, with line, brush and weed attachments. Approximately $155.

Honda recently sent me some physical spam advertising their gardening equipment. Their cheapest - but less powerful - equivalent is approx. $470. And it's a nylon line strimmer only.

Hmm.

/Translation notes for Americans: petrol = gasoline. I think you call strimmers "weed whackers", which makes it all the funnier when Seppos insult Brits about extraneous letters.

The refrigerator cases in every dollar store I've been in are not what one might call "functional".

Would I consume an Arizona iced tea that had been stored in there, sure. But raw meat hell naw.

I bought two different point and shoot cameras at Aldi, each were $75 and by an English brand called Traveler.  They were great point and shoots, better than any I've had by other brands.
