Tools

Buying cheap tools won’t help you get the job done, because they are more likely to break and you’ll have to replace them with new ones. Leaving aside the fact that you’ll end up giving even more money, you could also be putting your safety at risk.

“If you have a cheap clamp that’s holding something in the air above your head and it breaks because it’s poor quality, that could injure you,” says Shelton.
Choose quality tools that will last you for years and many products bought from hardware stores offer a lifetime guarantee. This means you can replace everything that wears out or gets broken.

    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.

    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.
