I love it because I can spend 40 dollars and I'm stocked up on staples for a long time!

Not really. I cook every day and use "real" ingrediants "from scratch". I cook dried beans for my chili, rather than open a can of beans...

At the 99 cent store all items are 99 cents or less! Some are 2 or 3 for 99 cents!

I love 99 cent stores. Most of the times they have the samething you can buy at Walmart for 99 cent. They are geat, especially when you have no money. You can rake together some pennies and go buy you something.

Same here. I buy snacks and sodas there, mostly. I also get my toothpaste and other tolietries there. I say, why spend more money than you have to!

we dont have a 99 cent store, but we have a dollar tree, but it sounds like we need a 99 cent store, everything at the dollar tree is $1 and some stuff I will go there to get, and some stuff I wont. They have cute what-nots, and candles, candle holders and such, and sometimes Ill buy gift bags there depending on how big i need it, sometimes I can get the cheaper at walmart or kmart, i usually only buy the medium sized to large and xxlarge gift bags there because walmart/kmart/target wants to charge $4 & $5 for those things. But I don't buy food and stuff there, it doesn't have name brand stuff and Ive never even heard of the brands they carry, I just don't want to risk it, but I do buy some foods at the dollar general, but its more or less like a mini walmart.

Those stores are great around the holiday season if you already spent a lot of money on gifts and want some cheap bags and space-fillers to make your gift look nicer. It's also a great place to get stuff to fill those fun-bags for birthday parties, etc. Cheap utensils as well.

$1 - $1
I love the Dollar Store. I don't know of any 99 cent stores around here! LOL But, the thing that bothers me about the Dollar Store is it isn't really a dollar. It may be 99 cents or a dollar...but after tax it is more than a dollar!!!

The great thing about the store I shop in is that some items don't have tax!
