Savvy Shopping: 12 Things you should always get from the Dollar Store!

If you haven’t checked out your local dollar store yet, you are truly missing out on something special. These dollar shops give you a Savvy Shopping chance!

Today, chain dollar stores such as Dollar General, 99 Cents Only and Dollar Tree keep popping all around the country. And they generally became neater, organized better and their products’ quality got higher. While not all items sold at dollar stores are a dollar, many products are priced up to 70 percent less than the prices found in drugstores and supermarkets.

Here’s a tip, if you really want to save money through Savvy Shopping and make the most out of your cheap shopping trip at a dollar store – bring a list and stick onto it. Although most of their items just cost a dollar, overspending still happens without you even realizing it. So we’ve made a list of 12 great dollar store finds you should include into your list!

1- Seasonal Decorations

Christmas Decorations

First up on the list are seasonal decorations! Why will you spend more at a party supply or shopping store if you can save up to 70% at a dollar store for holiday items that will only be used once a year? You’d be surprised by the nice home and holiday decorations you can find in dollar stores. Christmas tree ornaments, candles, frames, and crafts. At only $1 each, you can afford decorating your entire house.

2- Bath and Beauty Products

 

Bath and Beauty Products

A good way to save money is by buying personal products like shampoos, conditioners, shaving creams, toothpastes and deodorants on your local dollar store. They often work as well as the branded and way expensive ones. You can save up to $2 a bottle on shampoo alone. According to Consumer Reports, expensive shampoos do not improve hair any better than store-brand shampoos. And for those who love to pamper themselves, there are also scented soaps, bath oils, and salts. List of more Savvy Shopping at $1 shops is at next page!

3- Cleaning Products

 

Cleaning Products

Feel free to stock up your household with cleaning products from the dollar store. The ingredients in most cleaning products are essentially the same so generic cleaning products are just as good as the branded ones. Though they may be slightly diluted, keep in mind that you’re still only spending $1 each item so you can afford to use an extra drop or two to compensate. While you’re in that aisle, pick up some sponges, dishcloths, towels, and brushes.
