      it would have to be really basic and made with mostly canned shit or frozen vegetables, i wouldnt trust the meat there. some kinda basic gumbo or stew with rice with hot dogs, idk they definitely have spices at least

      People love to talk shit about Dollar Stores but they have great deals on many items. I go there for the almond milk and cauliflower rice in the freezer section.
      > I wouldn't trust the meat there
      Why? You are being dumb. Meat from a supermarket is far more likely to have issues especially if they are butchering their own meat. At a dollar store all they are doing is receiving little shrink-wrapped pieces of meat and keeping it in a freezer.
      Anyway, my local Dollar Tree has eggs, cheese, the frozen veggies seasoning blend of onions and peppers is great, frozen brocolli, cauliflower and so forth. Stuff the normal grocery store doesn't have often times. The little cuts of frozen steak aren't good, but the salmon is. The other day i got some tomato basil seasoning, the spice section is solidly decent.

      Dollar General sells eggs, jimmy dean sausage packs, and cheddar cheese. They also sell a whole world of canned shit you can find in most super markets. The real issue is no butter, so you'd have to use some kind of oil.
      But the dollar stores in my neck of the woods work fine if you don't mind eating the same 4~ meals forever and don't care about your health. At a certain point fishing/hunting/farming really is the better option in those "food desert" parts of the US.

      Dollar General isn't even a dollar store.

    No. Bottom schmeg of the bottom tier. As in troony prostitute bottom.

    Plenty of affordable places that run sales on better staple options. Consider immigrant markets like those for Asiatics and mestizos. The Mexicans where I live have good quality groceries available for dollar store prices.

          Dollar General isn't even a dollar store.

          As a European, it's not sure what a dollar store is, and y'all burgers don't seem to agree either.
          If a dollar store is something like Aldi or Lidl a few years ago : yes.
          If it's like Action : no.

          Would the Simpsons' Kwik-E-Mart be considered a dollar store ?

            No, thats a convenience store.
            A dollar store is like a Poundland over there (I think), with things being just 1-5 dollars.

              I'm Norman and I've never seen such business model here. Wikipedia tells me such stores actually exist in Île-de-France. Interesting how it's a city thing here and a rural thing in the US.

            It's like Poundland except it's more predominant in rural areas. I live out in the sticks and the nearest grocery store selling fresh meat and produce is 20 miles away while the nearest dollar store is just 6.

            they are just regular convenience stores with 1 key difference: very low overhead and inventory. the local grocery store offers 40 brands of soda, whereas dollar general offers 5. it's how they can justify the low prices. they also pick their locations strategically. they always go for the poor neighborhoods

              We're a nation of over 300 million people, it's expected that we're not all going to agree on everything. What are you some moronic euro socialist or some asian insect?

    one of my old bros went to culinary school and one of his 'exams' was to make a meal using like $10 of stuff from the convenience store down the street so i'm going to say yes, for sure it can be done. if we're talking dollar store but no real budget limit then they have a lot of decent stuff that just is in small packages, you can load up on that no problem

    For yuros:
    >dollar store
    Usually refers to Dollar Tree, a store full of cheap and/or small quantities of items where everything in the store is priced at $1 (until recently, now I believe everything is $1.25)
    Dollar General is a shitty budget store for poor people where homeless people go to buy a gallon of ice cream and a spoon to eat on the bench outside next to their shopping cart/home. Apparently they are incredibly profitable, because there is a dollar general every 2 or 3 miles even in the most remote and rural areas. I hope they all burn to the fricking ground and the ceo is buried alive

        Family dollar and dollar general are NOT the same as dollar tree. Dollar tree is the 1$ store. Dollar general and family dollar actually sell food.
