Dollar store

February 21st, 2016 at 06:16 pm

Last year, a new dollare General store was built just right down the road from me.
I don't know if you like dollar stores or not, but I am finding this one so handy.
First of all, I hate paying $5 for a birthday card and they have them for 50 cents or $1. Most people just throw their cards away after a few days and it seems like a waste of money.
For valentine's day, my husband bought me an expensive chocolate bar costing $4. (Sort of like a hershey's candy bar.) I find that the dollar general own brand of chocolate bar is just as good. (and all proceeds go to charity)
I am sometimes amazed at how much cheaper I can often find things at the dollar store.
I just got back from buying a birthday card for a little girl. I noticed that Miracle Whip was $3.50. I had planned to pick some up this week and noticed that it is $6 at the grocery store.
When I really need something, I often try the dollar store!

    That's great, Julie. I like that dollar stores are small, so quick to walk through.

    We have found the Dollar General has some great bargains and they accept coupons as well.

    We have a Dollar Tree in our town and it's amazing that there's any profit margin at all on some items. The kids love it too because they can buy more with their allowances. I use it for some household items.

    I love the Dollar Tree and the other dollar stores. Smile

    Dollar General is technically NOT a dollar store. Nor is Family Dollar. Dollar Tree is the only true dollar store. If/when some if not a lot of your items are more than a dollar, you're not a dollar store.

    Hey, Kaycee, Julie and I remember dime stores! Heck, some were still called five and dime though by the time I was shopping in them, I don't think anything was a nickle anymore. There were probably still some dime candy bars and pencils.

    Yes, we do remember five and dime stores. At the lunch counter, you could get a coke for 5 cents.
