My Dollar General Obsession!!

Not to be confused with the Dollar Tree, Dollar General is AWESOME!!!! They have name brand and off brand items. It is the perfect place to go if you want to avoid Wal-mart. Their prices are very comparable to Wal-mart but I don't ever spend as much in there b/c there isn't all that other stuff screaming at me and taunting me to buy it:) For my cleaning products and some of our bathroom items, Dollar General is my place! I'm not much of a name brand girl so if it slightly compares to name brand items and is half the price, I'm all about it. I did not have any coupons for anything that I got at Dollar General. This is just their regular everyday prices.

Here's the list... Aluminum foil (40 sqft for $1.65), brawny trash bags($2.00), gallon freezer bags ($2.00), sandwich bags ($1.00), 3 bars dove soap($3.00), arm & hammer laundry detergent ($6.00), awesome cleaner($1.00), comet ($1.00), Clorox wipes ($2.50), dawn dish liquid ($1.45), ant killer ($1.75), 2 packs of clasp envelopes that I use constantly for my camera strap covers (2 @ $1 each), a bag of chips (not pictured b/c I was eating them)($1.50), sunny delight ($1.00) and a small wastebasket that Rylee has been begging me to get for her bedroom ($1.00).

The best item that I purchase at Dollar General is this stuff...

it is called Totally Awesome and the name FITS! It is only a $1 a bottle and you can use it for anything at all. I clean the bathrooms, toilets, kitchen and the best part is you can spray it on stains on clothing and they come right out. I love this stuff. It says on the bottle to dilute it but I haven't and it hasn't been to strong. I was worried about my color clothes the first time I used it but the only thing is did was take the stains out.
So here is the damage...all this for $28.85!
Had I went to Wal-mart I am sure it would have been over $100 b/c let's face it, I NEVER leave Wal-mart without spending at least a $100. I kind of have a love hate relationship with Wal-mart so I try to avoid it if it is at all possible.
There you have it....happy shopping!


  1. Oh I am so glad you put me onto Dollar General..they just opened a brand new one in the old drug store near my house- totally redid it...and it's huge!

  2. I tried to post earlier, but didn't work. I want to know more about Awesome! Do you feel like it's ok with your kids skins? Ashlyn has eczema, so I have to be careful with what touches her skin.
    Also, I love DG. In my Sunday inserts, I had seen a coupon for Sunny D and Clorox Wipes, so even more money saved! Also, DG will accept coupons from the Sunday papers, but they will no take internet coupons.
