I wouldn’t say that I feel beautiful when I’m in sweats, a t-shirt, with no makeup on and with my hair piled up on top of my head in a messy ponytail. Nope. But now my husband tells me that I’m just as beautiful then as I am when I’m dolled up.

Pffffft. Whatever. Right?!

I do feel beautiful though, even in sweats — because he tells me I am.

A girl still likes to doll up though. We all have our favorite beauty products that we just can’t live without. Stuff that makes us feel all “girly girly”. The stuff that we actually HUG when we pick it up off the shelf in the store! Surely I’m not the only one who hugs my shampoo, right?!

I love me some Dove and I love to save money so Dollar General is one of my fave places to shop for hair and body care goodies. You can actually save $2 instantly when you spend $7 on any Dove or Vaseline products in-store at Dollar General right now. That means you’re only paying $5 ($2.50 each) for the good stuff, folks!! This offer ends 10/19 though — so don’t dilly dally!!

Back to School on a Budget with Dollar General

Back to School on a Budget with Dollar General


This post brought to you by Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

I was recently given the challenge of shopping for back to school with Dollar General with just $35.  I am not a frequent shopper at Dollar General but I do love a good challenge!  Seriously, I love it.  Since we homeschool, I am always on the lookout for great deals to help me stock up on supplies for the year.  I have to say, I was pleasantly surprised by the school supply selection at our local Dollar General store.  I knew this challenge would be a BREEZE! Back to School on a Budget with Dollar General The first thing I did was head over to the Dollar General site to see what the latest sale ad contained.  There were some AMAZING prices on things like pencils, notebooks, erasers and even Kleenex!  I also spied, with my little eye, a coupon for $5 off a purchase of $25 or more.  Yep.  Easy peasy for this challenge.  So, of course, I scoured the ad and made a list of all the items we needed.  I kept a tally of the price (rounding up for tax) as I went.  I was satisfied with my list and headed to the store! When I arrived, I was pleased to see that most of the items in the sale ad were readily available in the school supplies section of Dollar General.  There were a few things that were a little different and some had slightly different prices than I had planned for.  That’s ok though because I still had that nice $5 off coupon.  I did some quick figuring in my head and went to loading my cart with everything that was on my list! Back to School with Dollar General Collage Here’s my list:

  • 4 boxes of Kleenex (75 Count)
  • 6 packs of filler paper (125 sheets each)
  • 9 One subject spiral notebooks
  • 2 Three subject spiral notebooks
  • 1 pack of 4 mechanical pencils (I threw these in extra.  They weren’t on my original list.)
  • 2 packs of  fashion pencils (8 per pack)
  • 2 packs of fashion erasers (rectangular 2 per pack)
  • 4 Three ring binders with clear view covers
  • 8 Capri Sun big pouch drinks
  • 1 Fashion journal (I threw this in extra.  It wasn’t on my original list.)

That is a total of 39 items!!  Do you think I met the challenge? Here’s my receipt: Back to School on a Budget Dollar General Receipt So I was over by $6.34!  That was pretty much the cost + tax for the 2 extras that I added at the last minute.  Had I not bought the journal and mechanical pencils, I would have come in right at my budget!  Not too shabby considering I am not a regular shopper at Dollar General and the few price differences I was met with.  I am pretty proud of how it turned out! Now…what will you be stocking up on for back to school?  Whatever it is, I recommend visiting your local Dollar General to stock up on savings!

Spring Fashion for Less at Dollar General

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General. All opinions are 100% mine.

 

Dollar General Spring Apparel


Spring finally arrived around here and I’ve been eager to get to cleaning! My little guy grows out of his clothes so quickly, part of my spring cleaning includes going through his closet and drawers and bagging up outgrown clothes and shoes. Ohh yeah, and getting rid of some of his toys! Replacing those clothes though – isn’t cheap! Since I’m such a frugal shopper, I usually take some hand me downs from my niece who’s little boy is older than mine. I also shop where I can get the best deals – including Dollar General!!

If you’re looking for ways to cut costs on clothing, you should check out Dollar General too. Over the past few years, they’ve really went up a few notches in their clothing and accessories departments adding lots of style and flair! They have clothing for men, women and kids (including babies)! I was just checking out the Dollar General Apparel Book and saw this super cute spring/summer dress and these cute kids outfits! For the style, their prices are unbeatable!!

Dollar General Clothing

You can scope out the Dollar General Apparel Book yourself and see if you like the new styles for this spring. Luckily, I have 3 Dollar General Stores that are close by so I’ll definitely be picking up a few spring/summer outfits for the family. Kids are so rough on clothes, especially in the summer months and I’m happy that his new outfits won’t “break the bank!”. Another really awesome thing I love about Dollar General is that they always have such great coupons.

Libby's Canned Vegetables

WOOT!  It’s stock up time!!  I don’t know about you but I get tired of paying high prices for canned veggies!  They’re ridiculously high sometimes!!  But guess what?! Starting 11/18, Dollar General will have Libby’s Canned Veggies on sale for $0.45.  That’s a decent price already, but guess what ELSE?!  We have a nice $1/4 Libby’s coupon valid on canned vegetables from the 11/11 Red Plum insert!!

That makes these babies only $0.20 each after coupon!  We can get them in time for Thanksgiving Dinner plus extras to add to your stockpile, depending on how many insert coupons you have.

If by chance your Dollar Store doesn’t have much in stock, you can always price match at Walmart.  That’s probably what I’ll do anyway.  Who cares about Black Friday shopping…I’ll be in line for cheap veggies ;)! Be sure to check out some other Stockpile Deals while you’re at it.
