How to figure out the extra 50% off plus "cheat" charts for Dollar General extra 50% off this weekend!

Some people are getting confused on how to figure out the percentage off.  I added this to my last post, but I made a separate post in case anyone is still confused.

Let's take white dot clothes for example.  They are (most places) 40% off.  Then with the weekend sale, they are an extra 50% off.  You do NOT add the 40% and 50% to get 90%.  It does not work that way.

Most phones have a calculator.  So, get your phone out if you cannot do this in your head.  Some prices, like a $10 item will be easy to figure the price in your head.  So,  here is a breakdown.

A $10 item at 40% off would be $6.  (10 x 0.4 = $4, so your discount is $4 off of the $10 leaving you with $6).  Your extra 50% off makes the $6 price half - so $3 is  your final price.

I have made "cheat sheets" for you all, screen shot them to use in store!  These charts are for items that are already marked down plus the extra clearance this weekend.

10%, 25%, 40%, and 50% plus the extra 50%.
Items that are marked with an ORANGE clearance sticker should ring just 50% off the marked price.  The charts are for items that are clearance of a percentage and then the extra 50% off.

Updated.  I went ahead and made charts for the 70 and 90% too.  Some stores (YMMV) have the Q4 electronics at 70% and I even went to one store where the summer BBQ foods were 70%.  Plus, seeds are 90% at some stores!
