Money Saving Wednesday

Love the Dollar Stores? I know I do, but have you ever bought something, got it home, and found out it was not as good as quality as you might had thought or it broke within seconds? I know your thinking its a dollar, so you get what you pay for. But us frugal folk can walk into a grocery store and get something for free that is much better quality. I am not hating on the Dollar stores (like I said I love them), my sister-in-law, Dani, emailed me this list of Dollar Store Dos and Dont's from LearnVest a Financial Service (more details to come later). I have been wanting to share this with you all for a while but keep forgetting. So here is the break down








What To buy at the Dollar Stores:

Do Buy                                                       Don't Buy
