Have you seen this? I just found out about this super-cool summer getaway sweepstakes from Vega, and I had to make sure you were aware of it.
So, here's the deal: All you have to do is go to the Vega site, pick which of four summer adventures would be your fave, and submit the sweepstakes entry form (which includes signing up for Vega's email list).
If you just can't decide between the four adventures they have on the site, you can also take a short quiz to determine your summer getaway style (I was yoga retreat all the way).
The chance to win a free trip is awesome enough, but I am digging this Vega sweepstakes even more, because it's kind of a choose-your-own adventure! Rather than having to go on a specific, pre-planned trip to a particular destination, the winner will get a travel voucher, a visa card, a gift card for gear and Vega products to support the journey.
How cool is that?

We can always find some cheap, vegan dollar store finds whenever we go to Dollar Tree or 99 Cents Only stores, but I think these are some of the best plant-based dollar store foods I have ever found!
Buying frozen food is a great way to save money on groceries, but when you can find those frozen foods at the dollar store, you can save even more. All of the vegan dollar store foods in this post can be found in the freezer section at Dollar Tree.
Pictured above are just the ones that I actually bought and brought home, but there were lots more than that (most of which are pictured below).
Let's start with the stuff that is pretty much always in stock, and then we will take a look at some of the veg dollar store goodness I have never seen before.
I have found that cheap, frozen fruit is always available at Dollar Tree and sometimes available at 99 Cents Only stores. This is great for smoothies and homemade, non-dairy ice cream, and I always have some of this fruit in my freezer. While I try to buy mostly organic, I just can't pass up $1.00 frozen fruit, particularly since we go through a lot of it for our vegan smoothies.
Frozen vegetables are also among the cheap vegan dollar store finds that you will find at either of the major dollar stores and some local ones. Frozen french fries are almost always in stock, and I didn't get a picture of those, but I did find two frozen sweet potato products that I was pretty excited to see.
Sweet potato fries and sweet potato curly fries for just $1.00 each! That is a great price for sweet potato products, and I'm totally bummed that I didn't pick some of these up. I got a little too excited about some of the cheap vegan food that I had never seen at the dollar store before -- and I knew I had limited room in my always-stocked freezer -- but I may have to go back for these!
My local Dollar Tree had a good selection of frozen vegetables this time, including okra, broccoli, mixed vegetables and asparagus. I definitely wish I had picked up some of that cheap asparagus and am probably going to go back to get some before they run out.
I do not remember seeing asparagus in the freezer section of my local dollar stores before, and asparagus can be pretty expensive, so this is an exciting find!
If you have not tried these rosemary and garlic fingerling potatoes, I recommend picking some up at your local Dollar Tree! I tried these the last time I saw them in stock and would definitely buy them again.
Okay, now we are getting to some of the more exciting vegan dollar store finds that I came across on my last visit. We all know that veggie burgers are usually not cheap, but these little two packs of 100% vegetarian veggie burgers are just $1.00 each!
I bought two packs of these, and I tried one last night. The first thing I noticed about them is that you can actually see the vegetables, which is a quality I like in my veggie patties. The recommended preparation method is the oven, but I was in a hurry and threw them in the microwave. They were a tad mushy, but veggie burgers often are when you cook them in the microwave. Other than that, I would say the taste and texture were on par with veggie burgers I have paid a lot more for.
These Jamaican Style Vegetable Patties are another cheap vegan food that I have never noticed at my local dollar stores. I picked up two of them and tried one of them yesterday. The filling reminds me of a samosa, and that is always a good thing. The outside crust is several flaky layers, most of which I easily removed to cut out some calories and gluten.
I think these might be a particularly good choice for college students going back to school and looking for a vegan, dorm-room alternative to Hot Pockets!
I have not had the chance to try these frozen, battered mushrooms yet, but I am a big fan of mushrooms in almost any form, so I can't wait! I see these as a super-cheap finger food for a party or an indulgent movie-night snack.
To surprise me even more, they had not one but TWO kinds of green bean fries. I bought one of each to give them both a try, but have not had a chance yet. I think I'm going to make these and the mushrooms the next time I binge watch Netflix!
Of course, I will bake them with no oil to make them not quite as sinful!
You can't go wrong with zucchini fries, so I bought two boxes of these. My wife is a huge fan of fried zucchini and is an omnivore, so I'm interested in seeing what she thinks of these vegan zucchini fries. I don't think she will notice a difference, and I'm sure she is going to love them! I just can't believe I found them at the Dollar Tree!
Of all of the cheap, vegan dollar store finds I found on this trip, these vegetable empanadas tempted me the most. You saw all of those products I did buy, and I just didn't think that my body could handle any more gluten any time soon. So if any of you do buy these at your local Dollar Tree, let me know how they taste! I'm super curious -- they look so good!

Try these easy projects to create inexpensive, nature-inspired, DIY treasures for your home.
I have always loved driftwood and have long thought it to be a great addition to indoor and outdoor décor. Incorporating driftwood into your décor is a great way to bring nature into your home or landscaping and is an inexpensive DIY craft.
Decorating with Driftwood: Selecting your Driftwood
The first things to consider when selecting driftwood are cleanliness, its purpose in the ecosystem and the infestation factor. Before you drag that hunk of driftwood off the shore, be sure that it is not providing shelter for local wildlife. For example, on a beach it may be protecting a tide pool or providing a home to small shore animals, or in a lake or stream, it could be acting as a barrier to protect young fish or as shelter for crawdads. Driftwood could also be directing the flow of water, limiting erosion or providing shade for photosensitive flora, so as best you can, make sure you only remove driftwood that will have a minimal impact on the surrounding environment.
Once you have determined that the ecosystem will be safe upon removal of your driftwood, check the wood for cleanliness and possible infestation. This largely depends on how long it has been on the shore. Make sure you will be able to clean it up to suit your standards before you lug it to your car, truck or bike for transport.
Decorating with Driftwood: How to Clean Driftwood
Smaller pieces of driftwood can be cleaned by simply boiling them in a pot on the stove. Place the driftwood in the pot and cover with water, then boil and drain. This process can be repeated if the driftwood isn’t quite as clean as you would like it to be after the first boil. Larger pieces of driftwood (and smaller ones as well if you don’t feel like using one of your pots to boil them) can be cleaned with a hose or hot water and a scrub brush.
Decorating with Driftwood: Staining and Bleaching
I prefer to use driftwood in its natural state; however, it is possible to stain and varnish the wood in the same manner that you would stain and varnish other unfinished wood projects. If you choose to stain and/or varnish your driftwood, you will need to take special care in making sure that the driftwood is clean and has dried completely before you begin.
Another way of changing the color of your driftwood is to use a bleach and water combination to scrub it. This will clean the wood and lighten the color in most cases. Keep in mind that bleach is a harsh substance and you should use care when bleaching your wood (such as gloves and proper ventilation) and make sure that you remove all of the bleach before you place the driftwood on surfaces that could be effected or in areas where there are children or animals.
Decorating with Driftwood: DIY Home Décor Projects
Using small pieces of driftwood, and magnets and adhesive from your local craft store, create nature-inspired magnets for your refrigerator or filing cabinet. This is a very easy DIY project that simply involves gluing magnets to a relatively flat spot on the back side of the driftwood.
Slightly larger pieces of driftwood can be used to make candle holders that will hold either a single votive or tea light candle, or a row of them. For this project, you will need a piece of driftwood that will balance flat against a tabletop surface. Depending on the length of your wood, use a drill to make holes in the driftwood that are large enough to hold a glass votive candle holder then place the candle holders and candles into your finished project. As long as you can use a drill, this is another DIY project that won’t take you much time and is very easy to complete. I do not recommend placing candles directly into the hole, as this will increase the risk of fire.
Very large pieces of driftwood can be used both inside and outside as benches or plant holders. If the piece is large enough, well balanced and relatively flat, it can be placed as is to provide extra seating or to display plants. If you have a great piece of driftwood that is large enough, but does not lend itself to balanced bench sitting, you can still use it as a bench by leveling it with natural stone supports (like legs), anchoring it in sand (depending on your landscaping), or adding wooden legs that will compensate for height and balance differences along the piece.
If you are particularly crafty, or know a woodcarver, driftwood can also be carved into sculptures and used as interior décor or in landscaping.
