BUT - the ONLY way I'll admit to shopping is at Dollar General.
I hate shopping in general....I loathe the mall. I do most my holiday shopping online. I hate crowds and I abhor stupid women shopping with the taste of blood elbowing their way through crowds.
BUT - and this is about the only BUT in shopping for me - I love Dollar General. Because I'm a cheap bitch and I love a good bargain. When I see something in stores or something that someone shows me, I'm the annoying cow that says, "Meh, I could make that myself." or "I can get the same thing at Dollar General for CHEAP!"
Come on, people. Don't be idiots. If you're a dollar store snob, you need a reality check.
Dollar General carries name brands at cheap prices. They also carry their own brand called 'DG'...get it...for Dollar General. They compete with dollar stores and places like Walmart - but Dollar General always gets my business. Walmart - I won't turn my nose up at them, but Dollar General is sometimes just more convenient.
They carry shampoos like Pantene, TRESemme, Pert, Garnier and Suave. Prices run up to $5.00. FIVE BUCKS! Try getting that at other stores. Make up by Cover Girl and LA Colors. Nail polishes and accessories and even glue on false nails. I can get a pack of acrylic nails either in plain (to paint) or French Manicure for roughly 99 cents! CVS sells the same for over $6.00. Glue is separate at Dollar General, but come on, you're saving a bundle!
Deodorant, toilet paper, paper towels, cards and wrapping paper, toys, shoes, clothes, seasonal, gardening, cleaning supplies, pet food and supplies, rugs, decor, school supplies, groceries....and more. I can't say it enough...if you haven't tried out a Dollar General - do it.
I also love that when I went yesterday, I was able to pretend for a second that it was holiday season. For that, it made the trip worth it.
Here's a 'for instance'. I colored my hair this weekend - after the grays coming in scared the snot out of me. Normally you would go to a Sally's or Target, CVS or Walmart and purchase Clairol Balsam Hair Color for $2.75. If I had a coupon, it would have been about .25 cents. And in case you're wondering, my hair is shiny and healthy so buying at Dollar General VS any other store is only a factor of saving money.
Don't be douchebag - try out a Dollar General.
