Buying junk and saying you got a bargain from the Dollar Tree, is NOT being frugal!
Dollar Tree, is the worst place to shop at, fake bargains of practically trial sized products…The very idea, that you’d run out of product and return, to BUY MORE…A perpetual cycle of poverty!
Here are examples of being frugal, as you can see my money buys QUALITY, for pennies on the dollar!
Jewelry Box, from Goodwill Thrift Shop, $5.24, a concious purchase, as I own my own diamond jewelry. No man has ever bought me diamonds!
Krave Beef Jerky, CVS sells them for $7.99 each! From Big Lots, $1.25 each. I carry snacks in my purse, to nibble on, to keep from splurging on junk food, in the stores.
Another conscious purchase, from Goodwill Thrift Shop, a $249.95 Knitting Machine, for $12.00! This purchase funds programs to help those to get jobs! I’m a Lifetime Agricultural Center Member, who judged the Arts, Crafts and Photography Department.
Cake Mixes, .49 cents each
Cooked Chicken Breast Cuts, $1.00 each
Lotions from BigLots, $1.00 each!
Cherry picking my groceries, oyster crackers, corn on the cob, broccoli crowns, Roma tomatoes and sugar.
Tomato Juices, .74 cents each from CVS. Liquid potassium! Without potassium, your heart stops beating!
$32.99 Revitalift Moisturizer, for $4.29…L’Oréal Paris, the drugstore beauty line, owns Lancôme, the high end beauty line!
My recent grocery store trip, $42.00 worth, for $27.00! No junk!
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Nail Polish, retails for $10.49, paid $2.49!
Double hearts bracelet, $1.00
Today’s cherry picking grocery haul, $13.15 worth, for $6.49! No junk!
This is being FRUGAL…QUALITY for pennies on the dollar, conscious spending…Not buying junk at the price gouging Dollar Tree!
Being FRUGAL, means you live a QUALITY life, on pennies on the dollar and you eat better, too!
No cereals for breakfast, no eating out, no Starbucks and you avoid the price gouging stores, like the Dollar Tree!
