Penny Shopping

Before grabbing a new Dollar General penny list, you really should know a little about the basics.  This is a good place to start!

I would like to start out by saying that Penny Shopping takes a bit of work. There are many items that look similar or are exactly the same as the penny items, you need to figure out which ones they are. This is accomplished by going through the lists, studying other people's hauls, reading comments, taking screen shots, and so forth.  If an items does NOT ring up a penny, then it is NOT a penny.  Just because you saw it somewhere on the internet or in the app does not mean they have to give it to you for a penny ... items reset to full price sometimes!!!

The items that are pennied, are supposed to be pulled from the shelves, but the employees sometimes miss items. If the item is on the shelf and you take it to the register, they are supposed to sell it to you though. They do not, however, let you go back to get more.

Please be polite and considerate to the store employees. Do not tear up a store looking for penny items. If you are just starting out, I ask that you watch this one video which is a bit of the basics to help you get started:

Basics Video - please note that this is older and many of these items have reset back to full price.  This video is still helpful as it gives you the basics of what to look for on the tags.

Please remember this is an older video and is not indicitive of what is pennied or clearance right now, but showing you HOW to identify tags and learning the basics.  

Old lists can be found  here: Penny Puss Penny List

We also have an app availabe in the app stores for help while you are in-store.

Feel free to watch videos of my past hauls on YouTube here:

Personally, I prefer the deep discount sales, because you get a better selection and the employees don't seem to mind as much.  You may run into employees who don't want to sell you penny stuff and you may run into cashiers who are really nice.  There are all sorts of people out there!

So, good luck and happy shopping!
