You can use coupons at the Dollar General and Family Dollar too.
Since I've started mega-couponing and stockpiling I seldom shop at the Dollar Tree. i generally get things like toothpaste, toothbrushes, bodywash, razors, dish liquid, shampoo, conditioner, and the like for free afte coupons and a great sale. Sometimes, they pay me to take it out of the store.

hotcouponworld.com is a great (free) site to get started.
They have forums for most major stores.
I love couponing/stockpiling and will never go back to the way I used to shop.

Ummm no. It's a stockpile, neatly organized.
I shop from my stockpile instead of running out to the store and paying whatever they're charging for the item. I know I have it on hand, and it was bought for the lowest price, or free.

Dog food from the dollar store? Might as well feed your pet garbage. If you love your pet, you should take the time to research quality foods and select one that is nutritious, not one full of fillers and crap.

They sell Alpo canned dog food 2/$1.00. Maybe you should check your facts before responding.

Um, you just confirmed my response. Alpo is some of the worst food out there. The cheaper the food, the cruddier it is.

Read the ingredients.

Of course price doesn't always have much to do with it. Nutro isn't all that cheap and it's pretty cruddy too.
Talk to your vet and do research...those are key. you can actually make your own dog food and fairly inexpensively too.

Who said you hvae to buy S.D?
If you have a computer and you so choose, you can research what foods are lousy and what's good, or how to make your own...it's up to the individual what they feel is best.

Who says an individual can't make his own purchasing decisions without you telling him what you think of his choices?

As you so eloquently put it:

I'm not saying anything about anybody's choices...I'm not the one who said anything about Alpo...I just said that Nutro isn't exactly cheap either.
Also, if I'm not mistaken, it was on the recall list as well.
BTW, you should practice what you preach and butt out.
