When I was a kid, my mom used to take us into the local Family Dollar. I always forget how different this place is now than when I was a kid. This past weekend, I went in and was amazed at all they had. I left with 2 pairs of shoes, 2 shirts (for me), and a pack of socks, plus bronzer for $36. I should admit that the quality isn’t too shabby either. I would compare the quality to Walmart. Here are some ways to start saving at Family Dollar.
Actually look at the clearance
I have never seen clearance quite like Family Dollar. When they mark items down, they mark it down. There is no playing around at Family Dollar. They will mark anything and everything down to get rid of it. The signs can be a bit confusing, so make sure you pay attention to what it says exactly.
Everyday prices are cheap
What I love about the Family Dollar store is you can see that their everyday prices are cheap. You could really shop there without coupons and save a ton of money. Take the time to walk around and see what you can get for cheap.
Use coupons on everyday items
You will find that Family Dollar carries everyday items from popular brands. You can easily use coupons on these items. Look for online coupons or look through iBotta to see what you can save.
Save money with everyday things
When shopping at Family Dollar, you can save money on everyday things. For example, you can shop there for things like pet food, human food, toiletries, clothing, and so much more. When I need to do some light shopping, I just go here. Everything is cheaper, so there is no reason to not buy everything you need.
Buy seasonal leisure items
Summertime is a great time to shop at Family Dollar because you can buy a ton of simple stuff. When summer hits, I stock up on various outdoor fun items for the kids. Also, when Christmas and other holidays roll around, I can stock up dirt cheap.
Save time with Family Dollar
I have a Family Dollar close to me. What I have found that I love about this place is it’s the perfect “running store.” What does that mean? Well, when you run out of things like milk or bread, you run down to the store and grab it without breaking the bank.
