It was actually this week last year when we received word back that our offer was accepted on our dream home. That meant that our entire Christmas was primarily spent packing and getting ready for our big move. It was well worth it though, we were moving across town to the outskirts of our town and to the country.
At first our home did not seem too far from stores until we actually moved here. At our old home we were within a mile distance of a variety of stores and restaurants, plus entertainment too. Now, we are about 20 miles away from stores and restaurants. The one store that we have nearby though is Dollar General.
When we first moved in and had our first night in our new home, I woke up to discover that my coffee had been tossed or misplaced during our move. Do you know the tragedy this can cause? My husband hopped in his truck and headed to Dollar General to pick up some coffee. Of course, unlike before it still took us 10 minutes or more to get there, that was quite a change from our walking distance to the grocery store.
When he came back, I discovered that he bought Dollar General’s Clover Valley brand. It is one of Dollar General’s store brands. I was surprised to find out how good the coffee taste, I actually buy it now fairly regularly. On top of that, we visit Dollar General a few times a week now and pick up on a variety of their brands.
I personally love the Clover Valley brand. It’s a great, affordable brand found at Dollar General. I stock up on a lot of baking supplies with Clover Valley. Most recently, I picked up pie filling for a few pastries I am planning to make, then I grabbed a bag of marshmallows for a party we are having this weekend.
I also plan to make pizza this week for my daughter’s birthday, so we also needed some black olives. I have found really no difference between their brands and the name brand.
I even buy the Dollar General diapers regularly too, and I love them!
Now, the real kicker, almost every window treatment in my home is done with curtains purchased there too. They are actually some of the best curtains I have ever bought.
To say that I’m a Dollar General addict would probably be an understatement, but when it’s the closest store to you it just sort of happens that way.
Have you tried out Dollar General brands? What do you think? Be sure to learn more about Dollar General Brands! I am certain you will love them too!
Now, I’m back in the kitchen to start baking some pie!
