If you ain’t got no money, take your broke a$$ … to the dollar store and get some of these*:

1. Soy Chorizo

 

Yaaas, my fellow Mexican-food lovers, some dollar stores carry vegetarian chorizo. Cook it with potatoes for a crazy-cheap and crazy-delish meal.

2. Carb City B*tch, Carb, Carb City B*tch!

French fries, hash browns, tater tots, wedges, sweet-potato fries—the dollar store can make any potato dream you have come true.

3. Beans for Dayz

Beans are some of the cheapest and healthiest foods you can eat. And dollar stores have a variety to choose from, including white, pinto, black, and refried—whatever your lovely heart desires. Just be sure to get the vegetarian or fat-free refried beans, because ain’t nobody got time for yucky lard!

4. Soy Milk

Yes, some dollar stores sell soy milk. Look through the cereal or beverage aisle. There’s seriously no excuse not to buy vegan milk—I mean, c’mon, it’s a dollar.

5. Egg-Free Mayo

Yep, believe it or not, some Dollar Trees across the country have started carrying Hampton Creek’s wonderful plant-based creation Just Mayo. Call the store closest to you to make sure it’s in stock.

6. Frozen Veggies

Let’s face it, cooking can be a b*tch sometimes—especially when you’re super-hungry and the last thing you want to do is cut up veggies. Frozen veggies make cooking WAY easier! Use them to make a bomb stir-fry, add them to your fave vegan chili, or mix them up with pasta for a healthy twist on an old classic.

7. Vegan Ramen

OK, so ramen is cheap everywhere, but you might as well pick some up while you’re at the dollar store. Nissin’s Top Ramen comes in two accidentally vegan flavors—Oriental and Chili—so stock up.

8. Candy

You can celebrate Halloween year-round when vegan candy is only a dollar!
