When it comes to makeup you should pay attention to what goes on your skin, because cheap ingredients might cause you allergies and inflammation. Yes, dollar store makeup products may be cheaper but they can contain harmful chemicals.

It’s better to spend a little extra on makeup products because your skin’s health is very important.

“They may use harsher alcohols, or the refinement of some of the materials into things like makeup is processed on a low budget, so they’re not refined as well for your skin,” says Shelton.

Also, make a habit out of checking the expiration date and ingredient list before you buy something, then test it on a small area to make sure your skin tolerates those ingredients.

    You are correct on most of the items. I have bought batteries they are name brand but if used a lot will die in 24 hours. The cereal is only enough for 1 or 2 bowls of cereal, and the packages are getting smaller too.
    Some times or should I say once in a blue moon you can get a regular size small box of cereal.
    Vegetables in a regular store you can get your 1can a lot cheaper then dollar tree. I love the small pkgs of Cheetos that use to cost 2.00 in a store. The stores raised the price to 2.29 and reduced the pkg size. Dollar tree has a snack Cheetos which was a good deal for a 1.00 now that package has shrunk to 1/2 the size. Some candies the pkgs have shrunk as well. The glass dishes are an excellent buy. Be aware and look at your package and price check. You can get deals, but the quality isn’t there.

    totally disagree..I make $11 Grand a Year. Extreme Poverty..Can’t afford to pay triple the price of things at regular store. Batteries are not good, tho..We can read, if something is expired WE DO NOT BUY IT. Sheesh..

    Expiration dates should be checked at all stores. Not everything at a 99 is cheaper, but some items are a lot cheaper. As the Supremes sang…’You gotta shop around’. in 20 years in Las Vegas, l saved a lot of $, mostly at the 99 cent plus store.
