Frugal Fresh Start Purchase 2 – Dollar General

Frugal Fresh Start Purchase 2 – Dollar General

This changes everything. As I have been doing my research; visiting store and taking pictures of products I want to furnish our new place I had my second purchase all planned out between items from Wal-mart and Dollar Tree.

But then all of a sudden Dollar General sends me this incredible coupon for 50% off Housewares, etc.

I had to remap my entire purchase to maximize my savings. I’m sure you are thinking that Dollar General products are not always better and I agree so there are some items I will refrain from getting but remember I am looking for basic needs, I need the items to do the job and I know fully well that over time they will need to be replaced just like everything else.

Before our financial downfall we had Dollar Store and Wal-mart items and they lasted a pretty long time for us.

I am being frugal minded as well as realistic. The more I can save the more I can put towards our car or to our future place.

So with that I ended up getting on my second purchase using the Dollar General coupon. I ended up saving over $40 that I would have spent buying these items elsewhere even at their cheapest cost.
