    I always buy my mops and brooms there. Anything else is just by chance.

    Can't say I do, but I do like the bowl covers they have. They are like saran wrap with elastic.

    We purchase most of our cleaning supplies from the dollar type stores. I watch of good sales on shower gels, shampoos and conditioners threre also. I try to stock up when I find a good Dollar Tree deal, enough to hold me until the next deal comes along .

    I get most of my cleaning supplies there. Dollar General is usually pretty reasonably priced. Of course dollar tree is $1.

    I get suave shampoo from our grocery store. They usually have it on sale a few times a year for .69. I stock up and buy again when it's on sale. It's usually a few pennies cheaper at walmart. But if you're buying the bigger name brands, dollar general is almost always a better deal.

    I always go there for cards and gift wrapping supplies, especially gift bags. Always a $1 at dollar tree, no matter the size.

    we buy all our gift bags, cards, plastic storage containers, and stocking stuffers there. Sometimes I will buy cleaners and HBA, but usually sales + coupons make those cheaper for me elsewhere.

    I wish I could find a dollar store that actually sold things for a dollar.

    I've poked around a so-called dollar store and saw prices that were like.. $5. I was so confused and distrustful.. I left the store.

    Sudoku books! And cleaning supplies and toiletries and ziploc bags and giftwrap stuff. I can do better on food prices elsewhere, but I'm definitely into Dollar Tree for those items.

    Dollar General I get cat litter and certain foods at routinely. Occasionally I get some clothing items and household stuff there.

    I buy shampoo, soap, cleaning supplies, and other things at Dollar Tree. You can often find bonus sizes there and at my house bonus is always a plus. Last month they had Aim toothpaste, two full size tubes plus a travel size tube {for only a dollar of course}.
