      I was there at 8 am when they opened along with a bunch of other shoppers. I got over $200 of items we use for $6. 

    • Gingiraffe

      I got a bunch of inflatible swim toys and swim goggles last week that were marked 90% off, making them 10-20 cents each.  I plan on using them for shoe-boxes and some for my kids next summer!

    • Mebrshpr25

      Mine had really nothing, and I was there at 8am, so I went down the road to another one and stocked up, Got 8 pictures for a dime a piece and even a bird bath :) And course other things but it AWESOME!!!

    • Lksoni23

      Well apparently one person bought all 10cent items at my local store once they opened. Oh well you snooze you lose!  I’ll be ready next time….

      • I had twenty clocks, but the ladies behind asked for what and I told them Fall Festival Prizes, I asked if they wanted some. Of course they did, so I gave anyone that one at the time one. I felt bad that they were missing out on this awesome deal…only bought ten. But karma is good, went to another DG (the one that obviously everyone forgets about, or could just be its location) and they plenty of everything!

    • Amanda Leach

      I told my husband to go early and he’s just now going. So hopefully he’ll find some goodies.

    • I just left my DG, it is Fall Festival time and these will make for great prizes for adults! Each store is different, I have been to 3!….Wall Clocks $0.10, Worded Picture Frames (“Family”, Live, Laugh, Love”, etc) $0.10, Fairy Dolls, Plastic bats w/balls, plus all yellow and pink dot apparel is $1….AWESOME!!!!!

    • Glueandglitter

      Mine in simpsonville, sc had really nothing in the 10 cent area. I did find 2 bottles of coppertone sunscreen for 10 cents each in the beauty ares that don’t expire until nov 2012 so I snagged those.

    • Gintay23

      I got to my store at lunch time…got can huggies, candles, sprinklers, plant holders, 4th of July decorations, bird feeders and garden hand tools all 10 cents each!  I wish I would have made it there when the store opened!

    • I went to 4 different DG’s.  They where all pretty picked over.  But I did manage to get few OC items and 3 cozies.

        I got 2 mens shirts, 2 boys shirts, 1 pair boys shorts, and a pair boys “track” pants..

      all in all, they were decent looking for only $1!  the button downs for the boys were actually pretty nice.

    • darbe

      i found rakes, hoes and shepards hooks at my palm bay fl store for 10cents. Also found some beach toys. i bought 13 items and paid 1.27, wooo hoooo!!!

    • coupons4kids

      Oh wow!  I am just now seeing this so I am sure by the time I get there that there won’t be much left but its worth a shot since I have to go out anyways.

      • CouponNERD

        Same here – I needed a birthday card, so I went. got the card for $1, a clock, some disposable grilling accessories, 2 baby floats, and some sidewalk chalk for the shoebox…It was pretty picked over, but I still got a few things we could use!

        • coupons4kids

          Well I went because I was going to be out anyways. There wasn’t much left at all.  I got a little pink basket for 10 cents I can use to fill with small things and make a gift out of it. But that was it. Can’t win them all! :)

    • Courtney

      I just ran out to my store to look for Operation Christmas child stuff. They didn’t have much in the 10 cent section but they did have boys character t’s for $1!

    • Vickie

      I just bought 10 pairs of water shoes for $1.07.   Regular 5.00 ea!  They considered them summer clearance, that is a $48.93 savings. I also got bluejean shorts for 1.00 pair!

    • Jenny T

      Roxboro, NC does not discount shoes to 10 cents…bummer cause we filled the cart with 2 pairs for everyone for next year….did great on getting trowel shovels…our Girl Scout Troop is participating in a green space project this weekend and it involves planting…so AWESOME deal. bought chalk, goggles, swim floats, patriotic stuff, out door plant decorations, and lots more…spent 7 bucks and well worth it!!!

    • My store didn’t have much. I got 8 red, white, blue checkered placemats, 1 set of sidewalk chalk and 1 patriotic ribbon all for 10 cents each.

    • Christy

      I went today and got my daughter a pair of shoes for $1, but the .10 cent stuff was nothing but little kid floats. Sorta bummed,but shoes were great.

    • Couponrolanda

      I got 9 packages of swimmers diapers size M and L for the grandchildren, trowels, little rakes, kites,extra line for the kites. big bottles to make lots of bubbles, chalk, bird fountain, sunscreen, aloe gel with the pain stuff in it, goggles, swimming vests, patriotic stuff, Dora the explorer plates, toy story little bowls, cup cakes place mats, vinyl tablecloths, soft wire for plants, potting soil at one Dollar general, went to two others and they didn’t have a lot of stuff. So I was lucky to find such good stuff at the one here in town. I spend about 15 dollar on all this .10 cent stuff. Make the grandchildren happy. I’m a school bus driver, so tomorrow I can donate some things for the treasure chest. Makes me feel good, and my wallet too :) 

    • sue

      I would love to get some of these items but we make it a policy in my house to buy “Made in the USA” as much as possible. Most of Dollar General is “made in China’ or some place else.

      • Well Sue it depends on what you are looking for, all of the wall clocks, decorative frames, and wall art ALL have the “Made in the USA” flag sticker on them. Prodects of Goodlettsville, TN….Many of the stores do not have these items marked as $0.10. I have been to four stores and at each one the Mgrs have stated they didnt even know the items I had were included….

    • Soph

      I think it was the area I was in, because I went to DG around 11:30am this morning and all that was left was inflatable balls, baby floats & some really random july 4th stuff. Passed on those.

      Then I went across the street to the Walgreens to get that deal on Welch’s Jam but they were out too..

      Later in the day I popped into another Walgreens on the way to event I was volunteering at and they were fully stocked on Welch’s Jam.. so today wasn’t a total lost :]

    • Anonymous

      I checked one DG in Asheville & saw no sign of .10 items…some marked down items on a table outside, but nothing for .10. Maybe it’s not in all areas?

      • 2 of the four stores I went to knew nothing about it, mgrs included! Four out of four stores didnt have everything marked as $0.10….

    • Just FYI to all, in reading these posts it seems tha everyone is looking at the items that were in buggies at most stores…Look on the aisles too. ALL swimsuits are $0.10 too!!!!!  The decorative art is $0.10 and so are the solid colored wall clocks….

    • lmousa

      Thanks for the tip! I got a few 10 cent stocking stuffers, and 3 outfits for a dollar each! Also I used my $8 off 2 Cover Girl products here since Wal-Mart was sold out of the blushes. I had 3 coupons so I got 6 blushes for free. More stocking stuffers :)

    • Missbronze47

      Yesterday was my birthday and Dollar General  made it a great one !

    • Faith_serene

      FYI-There is also “As Seen on TV” items that are 10 cents, even if they are not labeled as being 10 cents, they are.  The ones I am certain of and purchased myself include: Shoes under, sliding susie, The Perfect Slice, Perfect Chopper Deluxe, and Fashion Magnets. Also, the $2 glass watering shere, and can coozies.

      Thanks for posting this. I am new to getting help with deals. I live in a rural area and the first dollar store had a table up from with about 20 items on it, no sign or anything to show it was marked down to .10cents. I think on the website it said anything with a green dot. I saw a cute double flower pot kit, included soil and seed marked $6 I took it and the tray up to the register and asked her to see what this is ringing up for. I told her I saw a .10 summer sale on their website today. She said tray is .10cents but flower kit is $6 then she went to the manager. Manager said give it to her for .10cents. So I bought two kits, two trays, two cit. candles etc. When she rang it up she said wow three bags for .98cents. I have never in my life experienced savings like that. So I drove the next dollar general and bought a few more items. I love to garden and we just moved. I sold all my gardening supplies to move. So this was super fun. So does Dollar General have .10 sales more than once per year?

      • JENNY T

        This is the first time Dollar General ran the unadvertised 10 cent items in our area. We usually get 90% off sales. Good luck on getting settled in your new home. Keep your eye out for more deals. This site is the BEST!!!
