Which is easier and cheaper and more accurate? need answer asap please!

i only have $14 and i need to buy a pregnancy test and some heart lolipops for the lil kids i work with. would a 3pack test for $10 and some lolipops for $2 plus tax be easier? or would going to the dollar store and buying 3test for $3 and some lolipops for $1 plus tax? would a test from walmart be more accurate or does it matter? i let my brother borrow money so im kinda low on cash and need it to atleast the rest of the week. also, last night i bought dinner for my family cause we didnt have anything for dinner.

  • BUY the cheap tests! I did a first response the DAY before my missed period and it was negative. A cheap dollar store one was positive.

  • I'd go to the dollar store, they are just as accurate as the expensive name brand tests

  • Honestly if it was me I would just skip the test for this week if you are that short on cash.

    If you feel like you must test dollar store test.

  • From my experience Dollar Tree ones work just as good as walmarts. I have used Dollar Trees only except one from walmart and they both read the same thing. Same goes for my family, we always buy them from Dollar Tree. So I would save your money and buy 3 from there and lollipops from there as well :) Good Question

  • I agree with kai. Skip the test. You will find out soon enough if you are or not.

  • First buy one pregnancy test at Walmart, a pregnancy test that has a result of positive is always right, you need just one to find out. So, you just need one test. And buy the 1 dollar lollipops for the kids at the dollar store! As for making it until the end of the week, after doing your shopping for all these you will maybe have 10 dollars left, if you are really hungry get some food at Mcdonalds from the dollar menu. And do not spend on anything else. Next time look out for number one, which is you. I have been thru some hard times myself, and I can relate to you. Sometimes I went to bed without dinner, it is good for the weight. LOL! Take care of your money. Set your priorities straight next time.
