The other day I stopped in to the dollar store to pick up a few things. As I was going up and down the aisles I noticed a few things that I would not be picking up.
10. Chicken Salad from a Can
Don’t get me wrong I don’t mind the Tuna in a can but chicken!! All I can think is that it must be packed in chicken grease to preserve it. Also it’s not much of a bargain at $1.50 for a small can of chicken and a few crackers.
9. Hair Removal Strips
I am going to say it, waxing sucks! But mostly because I suck at it. Even worse when the waxing equipment is bad. I just can’t imagine this stuff being any good.
8. Wrinkle Eye Cream
Some women will do anything to try and stop the aging process. But what most fail to realize is that you that goal isn’t a possibility.
7. Moisturizing Creams
I am not one to spend gobs of money on face cream but I think you need a little bit of balance. If nothing else get something that is oil free.
Let’s face it, being sick sucks. But being a sick kid sucks even more; out of school but not able to leave the bedroom. I am not a parent but I just would not feel comfortable using a cheap thermometer to determine my child’s fevers.
5. Handy Man Tools
This one made me laugh. It’s a lawsuit in the making I am sure. Imagine someone hammering away and the handle made of plastic cracks causing the head to fall off.
4. Children’s Toys
I am not saying that all Dollar store toys are dangers. What I am saying is that cheap toys can have poor safety standards. A few years ago many toys were recalled because of high levels of lead found in the toys. Check out Recall Owl
if you are unsure what toys have been recalled.
I saw condoms a while back at my local Dollar Store and didn’t think much of it. Until I noticed that the Dollar store expanded the family planning aisle. It’s the dynamic duo condoms and their clear gel, alcohol free Lubricant.
2. Ovulation Help
Maybe you didn’t need the condoms because you are trying to get pregnant. Make sure you pick up the new and improved Dollar store ovulation device.
So you bought the condoms and the lubricant and were not actively trying to get pregnant but the condom broke. Don’t worry kids the Dollar store has a solution to help you answer the age old question: am I pregnant or not? Despite being money wise sometimes it’s worth spending a little more, because it would suck if the $1.25 device got the answer wrong.
What do you think? Would you willingly buy any of the above products. Or did you see a prodict the last time you were at the Dollar store that you wondered about?
