dollar general

I ran into my local Dollar General today to check a quick deal and was pleasantly surprised to find all the summer gear with huge markdowns.  They have everything summer related on clearance 50% off, plus they are now offering an additional 50% off the clearance price!!

If you need any pool or outside toys and gear, then head to your local store and see what they have left in stock.  There is a lot to pick from, everything from pool floats to bats and balls.

I didn’t have a lot of time to look through everything but quickly grabbing the following deals for us:

Bucket with shovel 25¢
Twin Pack of Nerf-like Guns $1.25
Glow-In-The-Dark Bracelets 10 pk., or Necklaces 2 pk., 30¢

While you are thinking about going, check out this week’s Dollar General ad.

      Not just summer, but all seasonal clearance and last chance merchandise is an additional 50% off the existing clearance. Garden is 25% off + the 50%…green dot 50% + 50%…red dot 25% + 50%…

      They will eventually go to 90% off. I am a teacher and I got a lot of things for my classroom last year. Most things were .10 cents! I hope I can find it again. please email me if you live near Warner Robins, GA and see it 90% off. I always spend a lot in my classroom for my students, Pre-K.

      If you have old toys, belts, bookbags, my students can definitely use it! We are a title 1, 100% free & reduce lunch school (very high poverty).
      anything and everything will help a child!
      Thank you!!!

      I may need to go for more diapers. Friend of mine found DG brand diapers in the last chance section and the most expensive after discounts was $4.25 (for a 60ct pack of 3’s). WooHoo!! Same friend also said it’s really hard to tell how much stuff is. So grab examples of everything that interests you & ask them for a price check.

      WOO-HOOO! Thank you Jenny. I *so* need goodies for my prize box at church. I went to the nearest DG this morning and racked up, and it’s not even the ‘good’ one I figured I would have to go to. So, I got lots of prize box stuff plus lots more. I mentor three low-income teens/preteens and found numerous nice things to include in the little gifts I give them on special occasions. They even had the little jewels that go on cell phones and electronics and it looks like they rang up for one cent! I found three nice metal water bottles for just a little over a dollar. I try to do SP shoeboxes for the much neglected oldest boys and it’s hard to do a quality box (a must for me) on a budget, especially when 3 out of 4 family members have size 13+ feet…it takes a lot to fill our shoe boxes, lol! I’ll feel good about adding those water bottles! I was praising the Lord all the way home.

      I hit all of the Dollar Generals in my town fri and sat total of 6 here. One store in Ethridge TN had all summer stuff and clearance 70% off. I was told it depends on their stock on if it was 50% or 70 %. Got some great deal with and without coupons.
