Dollar Tree saves me so much money on food costs I can go from the $40 a week I used to spend on food for home and camping to $20 a week.
I can buy $20 worth of pasta,ramen,peanut butter,crackers,oatmeal and instant drink mixes which will easily last me a week. So now instead of shopping at the normal grocery stores like Safeway,Albertson's and Smiths and spend at the least $40 a week I can shop at Dollar Tree and in other area's Dollar Stores and live on $80 a month.
Thus now instead of having to work 3 months this year I am only working 2 months and saving enough to live on for more than one year.
Yes, I live cheaply. My house,bed and kitchen are on my back or bike when I travel and backpack. No mortgage, car payments and/or family to support. So I live on $1000 a year spending my hard earned cash at Dollar Tree and Store's.
So now next month in July I am leaving my job and heading out to hike the Gros Ventre,Teton and Wyoming Ranges here in western Wyoming for about a month. Then heading to spend a time in the Escalante country of eastern central Utah, then down to Zion NP, then to the Paria/Vermilion Wilderness, then up to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon for a weeks hiking on Powell Plateau and down to Thunder River. Then to spend a week crossing the Grand Canyon rim to rim, then down the Arizona Trail to the southern portion south of Tucson.
