TikToker Danielle Howard (@boujeebudgetgirl) of Bristol, Indiana, showed how many groceries she could buy when she stretched her budget by using a local food pantry.
“The food pantry really helps out moms like me that don’t get no financial support from their kids’ biological parent,” she explained.
“Every year I buy all the school supplies,” Danielle said, “So the food pantry really helps stretch out the budget.”
First, Danielle went to Walmart, where she spent $26.
She bought coconut milk, coffee, creamer, water, yum-yum sauce, sesame seeds, bouillon cubes, chipotle salsa, radishes, and cilantro.
Next, she said she went to Aldi “because they’re very cheap, they’re very affordable, and I can get so much food for a little money.”
For $50, she was able to buy fresh foods like onions, green beans, spinach, lettuce, jalapenos, tomatoes, garlic, and zucchini.
Danielle said she was taking her family camping.
She bought hamburger buns, two blocks of cheese, mini marshmallows, tortillas, hot dogs, and chorizo, to name a few.
One of Danielle’s favorite finds at Aldi was honey.
“I love getting my honey at Aldi because it’s super cheap, she said. “For less than $4, you can’t beat that.”
Danielle created a GoFundMe page to help raise money to buy a food truck.
She has a goal of $50,000, and so far has raised $350.
The content creator wrote that she was left “homeless” and “jobless” after being misled over a business decision.
Danielle said she was “forced” to “start from ground zero.”
She said she created her TikTok account to “help out other families who have been struggling.”
“Maybe one day I can have a permanent food truck that no one could take away from me,” the content creator wrote.
