Dollar General Clearance Event this Friday and Saturday!

Dollar General is having a Clearance Event this Friday and Saturday! According to the receipt, the "select" items will be an extra 50% off!
We use affiliate links and ads to help fund our site.

The receipt (as shown) states that the clearance will be and EXTRA 50% off of "Seasonal Clearance and more" ... and goes on to specify "select" of different categories such as:
  • Blue and /or gray dot apparel
  • Pink dot accessories
  • Easter
  • Yellow star toys 
  • Disney Infinity
  • Select ASOTV (I'm thinking these are the ones already marked down or in the clearance area.)
The receipt says nothing about core clearance ALTHOUGH the stores that I have talked to as well as signs that are being posting in the stores say that core clearance WILL be included.  This may or may NOT be everywhere!  Dollar General keeps their customers confused on sales and clearance ... I'm not sure if they do this on purpose ... but it sure seems like it sometimes.

So, anyway, I took some pictures in the store of what is considered "core" clearance and have matched them with coupons.  See below.

I am hoping to get more pictures later, but can't promise that I will have the time.

Free pretzels for National Pretzel Day!

Today is National Pretzel Day and no one loves pretzels more than I do! There are a couple businesses offering freebies for today, but you will need to download an app to get one of them.  See below for details.

  • First up is Auntie Anne's "pretzels" ... these are not my style, but a lot of people like them. I used to like one that they made that was covered in sesame seeds, but they no longer make them. Also, they aren't real pretzels to me. They are more like a cakey-bread shaped like a pretzel. If this is your thing ... you can download their app and get a free pretzel. You must download the app by tonight (4/26) to qualify though.  Link to My Pretzel Perks Mobile App.
  • Next is Philly Pretzel Factory - they are giving away one free pretzel to patrons.  Also, if you are one of the 1st 100 in line today, you will receive one free pretzel a day in May!
  • And finally Wetzels Pretzels is also participating in National Pretzel day by giving away a free original pretzel to it's guests.  Be sure to call ahead to be sure your location is participating.

Extra 15% off Back to the Roots Oyster Mushroom Farms!

Here is my kit from over a year ago.  It works perfectly if you follow the directions.  More pictures of my kit at the bottom of this page.  It was day 7 when I actually saw growth and they grew FAST after that!

Mushrooms here are so expensive and that is even IF I can find them fresh.  I have been buying a 4 oz pack of mixed mushrooms from Giant Eagle and only a small bit of that is oyster mushrooms, so I think I'm going to get another kit for me.  This is really a fun project for kids too, because they grow so fast!

The Mini Farm would be $11.08 with Subscribe and Save and the Original Farm would be $15.21 with Subscribe and Save!

New markdowns for Dollar General for today!

It's time to stock up on winter clothes and shoes for next year! There are even some clothing and shoes that can be worn year round! I picked up some cute little canvas shoes and sneakers for my granddaughter that are gray dot.

I'm not sure if Easter candy is also 70% or if it's trailing behind a bit.  You can always ask for a quick price check to see.

The Hostess Easter cakes MIGHT penny today as surprise pennies.  If I remember correctly, Valentine's Day and St Patrick's Day Hostess pennied the Tuesday of the week following the holidays.
