Back to School Shopping With Dollar General - Review

Disclosure - free sample provided.

It usually takes me quite a while to get everything my kids need to be ready for back to school.  I hate running to a ton of stores for back to school shopping.  We start school at the end of August.  I recently stopped into my local Dollar General Store.  I wanted to check out all the items I have seen advertised for back to school.  I was really impressed.  Their selection of items makes shopping easy.  Their prices are reasonable.  I also like that they carry school supplies, school snacks, lunchboxes, and much more.  Are you ready for back to school season?  

I went into my local Dollar General and first picked up our basic school supply items.  We need things like crayons, glue, colored pencils, markers, and filler paper.  These items were all available at Dollar General for a really great price.   I stocked up on the crayons because they were 3 packages for $1 at our store.  These are items that we use at home, but also get sent to school for class use.  I also picked up rulers, dry erase markers, and mechanical pencils.  I was really impressed with the quality of all the items I purchased too!

We also picked up some other items for back to school.  I send my kids to school with a refillable bottle of water to keep in their backpacks.  We  are in Vegas, and this is a must because it is still very hot when we go back to school.  Dollar General also had items like juice boxes, and little bottled waters.  These are perfect for lunchboxes too.  My kids are always so hungry when I pick them up from school.  I picked up some microwave popcorn for my kids.  I like to pop the bag and have it ready for them to munch on when they get in the car after school.

These are just some of the many back to school items that you can find at Dollar General for really great prices.  You can visit their website to find out where a Dollar General Store is near you.  You can also view your local ad directly from their website.  

You can also connect with Dollar General on Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest.
