Dollar store items are not all ways saving money. Here why? Like the dish soap in the photo to me it feels water down so I have to use more to get the dishes clean. Same thing with bathroom tissue. The dollar store brand cost me more money then if I bought the name brand from the store. One dollar store item I am doing good on is tooth paste. OK have fun.

It is better to buy the good stuff for certain items.

Not all things you get from a cheaper store are not always cheaper than somewhere else. That is too bad that things were more expensive for you when you bought them at the dollar store.

I have to agree completely with you on the dish wash and the toilet paper, they are not made the same. The long envelops are a good deal but they are .03 cheaper at Walmart. The dish towels are awesome and only $1.00

Yes, I agree! Some items at the Dollar Store isn't that great quality or worth the price either. Some items I purchase at the Dollar Store that I believe is worth the prices are: (just to name a few): books, balloons, cards, birthday decorations, wedding decorations, containers, etc.

There are certain things that I won't buy there. I buy candles there alot, almost weekly. Hygeine products are a huge no go. I would rather get those at the grocery store. I do buy batteries there for my battery operated tea lights and candles. I also buy ramen there all the time.

I like those dollar stores for some things, but not everything. For certain things like cleaning supplies, I tend to only use known brands (yep, I've wasted plenty of money on off brands in the past).
