Procter & Gamble and Family Dollar Bring A Better Clean for Every Dollar {Family Dollar Prize Pack & Gift Card #Giveaway}

 sample

I hate spending money on certain things. Things like laundry detergent and cleaning products are high on that list. Problem is I like name brand products like Tide, Downy, & Febreze. Lucky for me there are coupons and stores like Family Dollar.

I haven’t really done much shopping with Family Dollar until recently but they just built a brand new store the next town over and I’ve finally been able to take advantage of all they have to offer. It’s no secret I love shopping for clothes these days- especially kids clothes!

Here are some tips for taking care of the clothing you buy:

  • Wash with like Fabrics – Don’t wash you super delicate blouse with your husband’s work jeans.
  • Hang Dry – The dryer isn’t always your friend. If you have delicates like bras, sweaters and thin fabrics the high heat can damage the clothing and even shrink it. Get a nice line rack and let them dry flat.
  • Buy Name Brand – I know it sounds crazy but I’ve bought the off label stuff and well, you get what you pay for. You use 3x as much and it doesn’t get it half as clean.

Now when I use the words name brand you probably cringe because you think of the amount you use and think you can’t afford that but that’s just because you’re shopping all wrong. You want to save your coupons and shop the right stores. Once a month brands like P&G put coupon inserts in the weekend paper giving you money off the regular store prices. Then visit stores like Family Dollar who sell these name brand products at lower prices and still let you use coupons. If you visit their website they even offer additional coupons off your grand total!
