I hit the motherload today when I stopped into my local Dollar General! I was there for a big pack of styrofoam plates, when I got the urge to go to the back where the clearance was. On the way there, I noticed a cart full of cheese balls. I decided to keep going and check it out on the way back. Probably just an employee stocking the shelf and left them there, right? WRONG. More about that in a bit…
I found a huge cart of Febreeze bedroom scents, Glade room sprays, those jelly room deodorizers and more marked down like crazy!!! I didn’t get much from here since the scents were ones I wasn’t too familiar with. But I did get these:
The 2 air fresheners are the Dollar General brand and they come in a 2 pack. They were marked down to $.75. So was the Renuzit. I think they are regularly $1.
Ok, back to the cheese balls! How about they’d been marked down to $1.50! I think they’re regularly $2-$3, so I decided to grab one. But to my surprise & delight, when it rang up, it was only 50 CENTS!!! So I ran and grabbed 2 more (I was planning on spending $1.50 initially anyway, right? May as well get 3 times as much for the same price). The checkout lady was shocked. They’d just been $1 the day before!
So what did I do with them? I grabbed a big dipping spoon, some zip top sandwich bags and went to work! By the time I was done with one container, I’d had 17 bags of cheese balls! I stowed some of them away in a large container (another old Dollar General find) and left about 7 bags on the counter for the kids to have a quick little snack. I know they’ll love them!
So, head on down to your Dollar General! Who knows what discounted goodies you’ll find.
Until next time, try NOT to kill your kids!
