Save More Money by Shopping Here FIRST!

Money Saving Tip of the Month (featured column)
submitted by Pamela Munro of Hollywood, California

Hopefully you already know that dollar stores can save you a lot of money. Now here is the way to maximize those savings.

*  *  *

Buy as much as you can at the dollar store FIRST!

Our local 99 cent store has great deals on everything from car additives to makeup, shampoo to spices, to gourmet canned goods. We always shop there FIRST to get whatever we can, as the selection varies.

THEN we go to the regular store to get whatever else we need.

We also store up on deals at the 99 cent store, like color shampoo conditioner ($7 a bottle at the drugstore) and eye cream (ditto).  I am still working on my shampoo/conditioner cache of last year, it's saved me oodles!
