Bring a list to the dollar store
The trick to saving money sometimes is not spending money. Just because it costs a dollar doesn’t mean that it is a bargain
especially if you don't need it. Stick to the list!
Overspending without thinking is easy at dollar stores, so before you toss an item into your cart, ask yourself whether it’s on your list– and, if it’s perishable, whether you will consume it before it spoils.
