When it comes to saving money, there are many ways people have thought of to stretch their budget. Some use coupons, others use thrift stores, others go to dollar stores. While I, too buy a lot of things from the dollar store, there are many things that you should avoid like the plague. They always seem like a good buy, but trust me, they’re not. There are also a lot of things that are actually a pretty good deal from the dollar store as well.
