Non food cost big bucks!

I am reading a book Cut your Bills in Half I got it at the second hand store.
Grocery stores mark up nonfood items to compensate for low food prices. They suggest buying these at the discount store.
Here is the list:
Brushes, Paper napkins, Shampoo, dish detergent, tissue, garbage bags,
toilet paper, Laundry soap and toothpaste.

What are some thing's you've found cheaper at the discount store?

My problem with CVS is that the extra care bucks you get back are short-dated, and if you don't see a good sale on something you need before they expire, you wind up spending more (in ECB) than you would normally at a regular store.

Just my experience. With two young children, I do not need too many extra stops on my shopping route! I'm sure it works for some, though.
