I live in a small community that has ONE grocery store (no lie), a 'one dollar' store, a hardware store, and a Dollar General. The closest mass-merchandiser is about 35 minutes away. When you have 3 kids and a huge SUV, driving that far to pick up a couple of items is just not feasible. Gas cost too much and, well, I'm not even going to talk about carrying all 3 kids to the store. Sometimes I need to just pop in somewhere local, and grab something quick.
Well, thank goodness, for Dollar General. The one where I live (and I assume they are all pretty much the same?) carries a little bit of everything. Everything from grocery items, school supples, and baby supplies to my favorite P&G brands, all at reasonable prices. Yep, my local Dollar General has saved me many a trip to wally world, not to mention time and money by not having to travel out-of-town.
The best part...they can save you money too! Dollar General accepts P&G brandSAVER coupons, which can save you over $50 dollars! You can find P&G brandSAVER coupons in the Sunday paper. Look for them on 01/27/13 for great offers valid through 2/28/13. Saving time and money is always a good thing in my book. It's like that Swiffer commercial, where the women realize they are all done cleaning and finally have time to read a book, or give themselves a facial! I love those commercials! What would you do if you found yourself with an extra $50 in the budget?!
