Have you heard of Dollar General? Who knew they had more than 10,000 stores in 39 states and counting. I didn’t. Just this year alone they will be opening approximately 50 new stores in California.
Last week I went to check it out to satisfy my curiosity and see what they have. Before my trip, as I always do before my shopping trips, I looked for offers and coupons. I was happy to see Dollar General offers different ways to get even more for your money through specials, deals, and coupons. I immediately signed up for DG text alerts, which was easy! I just texted JOIN to DGTXT and I was set, I started getting messages for coupons right away on my phone. You can also sign up through email or DG’s Facebook Page.
But enough talking, let me show you a few pics from my shopping experience:
Here is the first thing I saw and it brought lots of memories from México! I love Marinela products!
Then I saw my favorite Hunt’s Tomato Sauce. Did you see the 65 cent tomato paste, too?!! Wow!
Check this out! There is a Dollar aisle.
Then I found this clearance aisle with great prices.
As you can see, Dollar General has more than food. Getting ready for grilling season?
I couldn’t believe they had these bags! I was actually looking for affordable storage bags like these, so I got some.
What? Food, grilling equipment, storage bags, and shoes? Yep, they also have shoes.
Here is what I got, my kids were a little sad I didn’t take them shopping with me, but they were happy when they saw their favorite ice cream…mint chocolate chip!
Fun, don’t you think?
