Save money by shopping Dollar General for Back to School & Dorm supplies
On Friday, Malik will be leaving to begin his 3rd year at Bowie State University, so last Saturday he and I did his annual “Back to the Dorm” shopping.
I can still remember his first year at college and how we practically broke the bank buying supplies that he really didn’t need nor want and wasted a lot of money.
Last year we made sure to only purchase items that he absolutely needed or items that we didn’t already have in the linen closet. No more new sheets and towels because we had plenty at home, “strip the bed not your savings”!
Dorm life is not for living in the lap of luxury, therefore, it is not necessary to purchase new dorm sheets, towels and pillow cases every year!
Our first stop was to Dollar General where he was able to purchase most if not all of his dorm supplies. Dollar General has a large selection of name brand items including Tide, Gain, Dove, Brut and Hanes all at everyday low prices.
Malik worked hard during the summer at Amazon so he understands the value of a dollar, therefore, he was very conscience about his purchases and only put in the cart what he absolutely needed.
However, he couldn’t pass up the automotive supplies even though his car will remain parked at home.
Dollar General carries a large selection of cleaning supplies, health and beauty products, toiletries, storage containers, small appliances, clothing, beverages and snacks.
If you have a son or daughter entering college and have received a list of must needed items, make sure to scrub that list to ensure your student will actually use the items.
Not everyone drinks coffee so pass up on that appliance!
You can save even more money by shopping at a local Dollar General to purchase the most needed items.
Dollar General accepts manufacturer’s’ coupons and they also have online digital coupons, just text JOIN to 34898 to sign up.
Whether you have a college bound student or one that will be entering elementary or high school I am sure Dollar General will have many of the supplies on their list.
Start the year off right by saving on school and dorm supplies at Dollar General.
Tip – purchase Detergent Pods as they are easier to transport to the dorm’s laundry room as opposed to large bottles of detergent and fabric softeners.
