With some products, it's easy to see that they're not worth one dollar just by looking at them. On the other hand, sometimes I'll buy a product for one dollar and think I'm getting a great deal. Sometimes I do, but other times, I wonder what I was thinking. This happened just the other day when my sister and I was in the Dollar Store. She happened to remember that we needed clothespins. I found a bag of clothespins in the laundry aisle and thought I'd snagged the deal of the day. A bag of 50 wooden clothespins for the low, low price of a one dollar bill. The next day, after I had washed some clothes, I grabbed my new bag of wooden clothespins, my laundry and headed to the clothesline. The second clothespin I took out of the bag came apart before I could even get the thing on the clothesline. Since then and after several more loads of laundry, I've probably pitched a third (so far) of my new clothespins. The wooden part seems sturdy enough, but the metal bracket that holds the wooden pieces together are total junk. So I've learned my lesson with dollar clothespins. Next time, I'll splurge a little and get some that are made better. So are there any dollar items that you thought you were getting a good deal on that weren't that good of a deal after all?
