There’s something about the holiday season that brings out the best of my money-saving abilities. I’m normally pretty good at finding a good deal, but at Christmas time? Oh, I pull out all of the tricks to stretch a dollar in order to buy gifts for my family and friends.
The most important part of my deal finding strategy used to be flipping through hundreds of pages of store circulars and going out shopping while it was still dark out on Black Friday. This year, though? I’m sleeping in thanks to some local intel I discovered about Dollar General.
Did you know that Dollar General has brand name toys? Well, I do now. They have LEGO, Disney, LOL Surprise, and more. You can take care of a HUGE chunk of your kids’ presents in one visit to Dollar General, and best of all, you won’t have to fight the swarming crowds at the bigger stores. You’re going to want to stroll through the store yourself, but here are some of the brands you’ll find at Dollar General:
1. Keep Kids Busy With LEGO
Sure, they hurt when you step on them but LEGO sets bring so much joy to kids, though. And they keep children occupied for hours. Totally worth a trip to Dollar General to pick some up.
2. Every Mom’s Favorite Brand
Is it even Christmas if there are no Fisher-Price toys under the tree? Fisher-Price has been the brand of choice for moms since I was a kid. As a matter of fact, I think buying your child the Chatter Telephone is one of the requirements of being a mom.
3. Buy Your Kid Their First Car
Some toys never go out of style, and Hot Wheels definitely fall into that category. Dollar General has a selection of every little kid’s favorite vehicle in stock.
4. Your Gamer Will Love You
Dollar General has PlayStation gaming consoles, y’all. This is a literal game-changer! Usually when a discount store has toys, it’s only for the little ones. Dollar General is really making sure you only have to make one stop during the holidays.
5. Take Family Movie Night Up a Notch
You know how movies are so expensive now? Well, you can get a GPX Mini Projector from Dollar General for a Christmas gift for a great price, and save all of that money you’d spend at the theater. Pop some popcorn and take family movie night to the next level!
6. Okay, This One Is For the Adults
I know an Energizer Video Door Bell isn’t a toy for kids, but as a parent, I totally can’t wait to play with this. The best part is it’s a fraction of the price of other video doorbells, and I can waltz into Dollar General and pick it up without having to wake up early on Black Friday.
7. Kids Love Surprises
My child loves L.O.L. Surprise, and I’m always on the lookout for new ones that she hasn’t seen. Dollar General has a wide variety of L.O.L. Surprise products, and I’m glad my wallet won’t be surprised when it’s time to check out.
8. Dollar General, like Paw Patrol, Saves
Paw Patrol saves the day, and Dollar General saves you money, so it makes sense that my son’s favorite pups are in stock. From action figurines to a control cruiser, you’ll want to be there on the double to pick up your Paw Patrol presents.
9. Let’s Go Party
Come on, Barbie, let’s go party! The iconic brand has been a favorite toy for kids for decades and you can buy them at your favorite store for a reasonable price. Sounds like a reason to party to me.
10. Why Not Go Retro?
Everything that we used to love as kids are coming back, and I’m here for it. Dollar General has the exact My Little Pony that I had when I was little, and now my kids will have it, too. Whether you want old-school toys or modern updates, Dollar General has it all.
11. Let’s Be Real — This One’s For the Mamas
While there are dozens of brand name toys at Dollar General, other well-known brands can be found throughout the store if you want to get a gift for you from you. Like, say, a limited edition Garth Brooks vinyl and CD collection featuring some of his best music. Bonus: the entire family can jam on your good taste, too.
Dollar General helps you shop for the brands you love for less. This holiday season, save time and money at Dollar General.
