I like to buy Tupperware and pet food when I go to the dollar store. It's the exact same quality as buying them from a bigger store, and cheaper. Sometimes I'll get treats for my family, like little notepads and candies, or sparkly pens. I don't mind buying chips and other snacks from the dollar store, either, but I'd stay away just about any other foodstuffs. I've not heard anything bad about them, but something about it makes me feel strange.
