3. Pet Food

If you plan to restock on pet food, try shopping at Target next time. If your cat is a fan of Purina Kit & Kaboodle Dry Cat Food and you want to buy nine pounds of this food from Dollar Tree, you will need to pay $15 for it.

On the other hand, if you go to Target and look for the same brand and type of cat food, you will find a 16-pound bag for only $11.99. So, as you can see, Dollar Tree can sometimes be more expensive than regular stores.

Also, if you need some food for your pup and you want to buy a bag of Purina Beneful Healthy Weight Chicken, you can find a 12-pound one for $40. If you want to buy more food at a better price, try Target. Here you can purchase a 14-pound bag for $16.49.

Don’t go to Dollar Tree to buy the next item!

  1. In many examples this is the case. Understand your monthly budget, your need for the month in quantity of the product and then weigh the costs of each of the local stores. You’ll be surprised how many times big box stores win the price competition. However, I see the same faces at ALL of these stores so go figure! Dollar stores still hold their place in the shopping game. Play the game wisely and you will WIN! Happy shopping, RW, Florida.
