Subscribe in a reader

These days, the economy is not doing so good, and gas prices are rising sky high. To beat all these economy blues, many folks are re-discovering Dollar Stores.

Good old Dollar Stores are discount stores which sell many items for a dollar or a few dollars. Some of them are "pure" dollar stores, where everything is only a dollar. In good times, many people kept away from dollar stores as they associated it with shame, poverty, etc. But when you have to pay $4 for a gallon of gas, you can't be so choosy. And many items in Dollar stores are just as good as regular chains. Do note that, you shouldn't buy cosmetics, food, or toothpaste from Dollar stores, as often they carry cheap imported makeup, food, toothpaste that are not safe. But for things like paper plates, mugs, and many other small items, dollar store provides the best price.
