Step 3: Understanding why the items are not in your store plus the latest markdowns to look for!!!

The first part of this video explains why you may not have the clearance items in your stores.  I posted pictures in the 2nd half that should help you find items - even some hidden items. Remember to look EVERYWHERE!  Sometimes an item is on an end cap or top shelf where it's just been missed by others.

Well, have fun shopping everyone!

Here are the current clearance that is going on:

Dollar General Penny Shopping - Step 2 "Why the items go to a penny, or dime, or quarter ..."

This is another very basic video to get you to understand the process behind the discounts and "penny shopping".

Here is the 1st Step if you missed it: Dollar General Penny Shopping: Step 1 to understanding the tags.

And then  here is the 2nd:  (Please view them all if you are new and want to penny shop, it really helps to understand the basics first.)  I hope you find this helpful!

Dollar General Penny Shopping: Step 1, A look at the tags ...

Since so many people seem to be having trouble understand penny shopping at Dollar General, I have decided to do a series of basic videos. They may seem silly to some, but to a new penny shopper, I am hoping it will clear up simple questions. If you want to ask questions AFTER watching the video, please comment on my Facebook page if possible. I'd really appreciate feedback as if this is helpful or not.

This weeks markdowns.

I just posted a quick post on my Facebook page yesterday about the newly discounted items.  I was really busy, so I have not done a video or pictures yet.  But, if you look at the last video with the purple dots and other items that discounted with the purple dots, they are now only 10¢!

The Amazing Values items (some items shown below) that were 25¢ are also now 10¢.  Most of the discounted ones have the circle design on the top of them so as not to confuse them with the newer batch of Amazing Values.

Seeds including starter sets (not grass seed) are 90¢ off.  I got some nice little herb kits that were originally $6 for only 60¢.  These will make really nice gifts.
