dollar-general-tripI was in a pinch today. I was completely out of canned dog food. Luckily, we have this great $5/$25 Dollar General printable store coupon that is valid today only (5/1/15.) I also had a few Alpo printable coupons from a few weeks ago. I also wanted to pick up this Hefty Trash Bag deal anyways. Note that I estimated the regular price on the Hefty products, since the price wasn’t listed on my receipt.

  1. I just got back from dollar general and they were almost out of the green garbage bags. So I could only get 3 of those and 1 kitchen garbage bag so I am glad I had the 1.00 off coupon for the kitchen bags with me and 3 of the 1.50 off for the others. I got a table cloth on the sale table and thought it was 1.00 but it rang up .10. I also got 40ct advil for 1.00 (store brand) and the hamburger for 3.50. It came up a little less than 25.00 so I had to grab a candy bar. It threw me off because nothing was marked on sale so I thought the meat may have been 5.00 at my store but it rang up right. So it was 14.95 before tax.
