The Real Difference Between Dollar Tree and Dollar General


The dollar store is the perfect place to go to pick up some cheap party supplies or that other roll of paper towels. Chances are, you’ll leave the store having spent less than ten dollars. If you find yourself spending a little more than expected, it might be because you’re not actually at a “true” dollar store. Find out the items you should have been buying from the dollar store this whole time.

That’s right, despite the name, not all dollar stores sell every item in the store for just a dollar or less. Dollar Tree is a “true” dollar store, but Dollar General is not. Even though Dollar General has the word “dollar” in its name, everything in the store doesn’t go for a buck; their merchandise is just low priced. Family Dollar is another chain that sells items for over a dollar. Even though the price tag is tempting, make sure you never, ever buy these items from the dollar store.

Whichever store you choose to shop at, you’ll still be getting a deal than you would for the same items at Walmart or Target. Just remember to look for “Tree” on the storefront before you go in expecting to snag those dollar deals. Next, check out these 32 things you should never, ever buy at a garage sale.
