When NOT to Shop the Dollar Store

Posted on May 9, 2013

I am ALL about saving money, and if there’s something at the dollar store, of all places, for $1 or less, I’m on it. But, thanks to a recent column, some things may not be that great to buy at our favorite money-saver hotspot.

Not Bad Purchases:

~Party Supplies

~Drawing Paper

~Notebook Paper

~Most cleaning products


Avoid if possible

~Electrical Cords (could be pretty un-safe)

~Children’s toys (unless you’re okay with them breaking very soon)

~Some food
