DOLLAR TREE STORE

The tip for today is find a Dollar Tree near you and shop.

I was on my way to the local mall for a meeting, broke a fingernail when I was at the dentist, so stopped in at the DT near the mall for clippers. The store is huge.

As I was standing in line waiting to make my one $1 purchase, I scanned the area visually. Here is what I saw:

New Testaments
party napkins
bunny ears
decorative flags
batteries
As Seen on TV gadgets
flower pots
balloons, filled already
bottled juices
baby items
thousands of items that would cost more than $1 at any other store

No coupons accepted, large sigh.


But.....I will be returning with dollars in hand. It's a buffet of savings!

Their markup probably isn't high enough to cover the discount of most coupons. They have to settle for a legitimate profit.

Yeah, I understand and I would rather pay the one dollar than what would be allowed for a coupon. I was being silly....normal....silly.
