Shopping at Dollar Tree is a great way to build up your preps and stockpiles for very little money 🙂
When you combine that with couponing then wow it is really a great way to prep!! 🙂
Dollar tree takes manufacturer coupons plus up to 2 internet printable coupons say from coupons.com per day 🙂
Here is my latest haul. 🙂
The Colgate toothpaste and the Loreal eye makeup were bought using coupons.
The toothpaste was 25 cents each and the eye makeup was free 🙂
Except for tax. Dang tax man.
I love to shop for preps at the Dollar tree.
A few tips for shopping there.
1. Be patient with the cashiers, They do not have a coupon scanner so they must hand read each coupon. My cashier forgot her reader glasses today so I read the coupon to her 🙂
2. Remember only 2 internet printable coupons per day from coupons.com.
3. Make sure your item is for the right size and quantity since the Dollar tree often has unique sizes.
If you have patience you can get yourself some really good deals.
Remember to save items for gifts, donations or SHTF barterables (trading items) if you have no current need for the items 🙂 I have posted their coupon policy below for easy reference 🙂
