Usually, a liquid detergent that can be found in dollar stores is sitting on the shelf for a longer period than you’d thought. Avoid buying it from dollar stores if you don’t want to have a busy day of doing laundry and finding that your liquid detergent is expired.

“Skip liquid detergents, unless there is an expiration date.”

“Liquid detergents tend to lose their efficacy over time so if the product has been on the shelf for over a year, it won’t be as effective,” says Shelton.

    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.
