Shopping at dollar stores can be a useful way to save money on household items, but we still need to pay attention to the unit prices while perusing the repriced selection. MSN Money did some shopping around and discovered that canned vegetables and fruit are often more expensive than at other stores, and the same can be said of trash bags, food-storage bags, and bottled water.
The test also came up with a bunch of stuff that was cheaper at the dollar store, like shampoo, school and office supplies, spices, candy, snack foods, and household cleaners. Are there certain items you always find are cheaper at the dollar store? Have your experiences been in line with MSN Money's test results?
