SHOPPERS who are looking for household products can save on select items at dollar stores.
TikTok user Dealwithash, who describes herself as a “lazy couponer”, recently revealed a trick.
The couponer took advantage of savings in the store just by using her phone
Ash saved $3 on two shampoo products
This saving strategy will work when shopping at Dollar General, which she frequently visits, according to her recent TikTok videos.
In a recent video, Ash unveiled how she saved $8 at an unspecified store location.
How she saved money
The key to this savings trick is of course using coupons.
While Ash did not reveal exactly what she uses, Dollar General has its own coupon section on its mobile app.
You can also visit the discounted retailer’s website and add coupon deals to your wallet.
However, keep in mind that some coupons could vary by location.
Also, some of the coupons may have upcoming expiration dates, so you may need to act quickly to use them.
In particular, Ash bought a series of household products.
One of them was a Garnier Whole Blends shampoo, which was listed in the store for $3.75, but she used a coupon to get $3 off on two of them.
She also used a coupon on a Cloralen product, which allowed her to buy the product at $2 each.
It’s unclear what the original cost of that particular product was.
In total, Ash claims she only spent $5.75 on six-household products.
According to Ash, she saved $8, or 58% by using her coupon trick.
How else can you save money?
There are of course plenty of other ways you can save money while shopping.
Another way you can save at Dollar General is by taking advantage of in-store sales.
For example, Ash revealed in another video that one Dollar General store previously had a buy-two-get-one free sale on Fabuloso disinfectant wipes.
When it comes to general savings at retailers, buying store-branded products is also a great way to save money.
Using this strategy is said to save shoppers up to 30%.
And if you’re worried about sacrificing taste of store-brand products compared with prominent brands – you shouldn’t.
A market research study by IRi found that 75% of respondents think the quality of store brand items is just as good as major ones in the country, as cited by Ramsey Solutions.
Additionally, using third-party cash back apps is another great way to go.
Some of the top cash back apps out there include Rakuten and Ibotta.
