A Better Deal Than Free Shipping Is...


I love shopping at my neighborhood grocery store, but while I was volunteering at a local food pantry, I heard something disturbing. The grocery store where I shop keeps dozens of bread-loaves to increase sales because nobody wants to buy the last loaf of bread.

 Little behold, if the grocery store sells just one loaf of bread, they still make a profit even if they throw the other 11 away!

As a millennial, I am always trying to find different ways to save money……..so I went on an adventure to the Dollar Store!

 Here are items that you can find at your local dollar store to help you save money!

Sunscreen - Sunscreen is sunscreen, why pay over $3 for the cheapest sunscreen I could find, when you can pay $1?

Cleaning Supplies - Searching large corporate online stores, I was only able to find a few products that were less than $1

Spices - You won’t find anything fancy, but who uses salt and considers themselves high class?

Greeting Cards - Go ahead and keep paying a minimum of $3 for that last minute card you recently bought

Party Supplies:

  • I either do the following with my party supplies

  • Throw away the perishable items

  • Recycle the remaining items

Happy Slacking,
