The Dollar General, or any dollar store really, has always been one of my favorite little guilty pleasures, since there is a laundry list of things to buy at Dollar General that can save you time and money. Some of these items might not come as a surprise, but a few others may. Recently, I was at the Dollar General while running errands, and noticed how much cheaper name brand items were than at the supermarket. I also noticed a few of my favorite household staples were also noticeably cheaper. So, of course, I thought I would share them with you! Next time you pass a Dollar Store, consider heading inside to save money, and time, all in one trip.
If you like tuna like I do, it’s one of the best things to buy at Dollar General. You can find name brands of tuna and other fish, for almost 50 cents less than at supermarkets that aren’t running a special. Canned or pouch tuna makes for a cheap, easy snack or part of a healthy meal. If you’re concerned with mercury content, choose chunk light varieties which are low in mercury, instead of albacore tuna, which is higher in mercury.
