What is the problem with it? Why is it that some of you think it is low or trashy. I think it is good money management.
Family dollar has a sale right now buy one get 50% off. On Thanksgiving they will have a sale buy one get one 70% off. My mom is shopping for my kids. Come Thanksgiving my mom will get around 10 gifts for under $100.
a lot of you sound like complete snobs. I wonder how many of you have actually shopped at any dollar store. Family Dollar , Dollar General, Dollar tree? And not just judging by the name alone? In my area EVERYONE calls family dollar and Dollar General a Dollar store. Not just my family or friends EVERYONE .
They have a lot of name brand, good toys and other stuff especially around Christmas time. My kids got a few things last year from the family Dollar and they still have the stuff this year and still play with it as well. and they are not broken.
And no not all Dollar stores are in bad or trashy areas our is in the middle of town.
I think it is so sad that some of you are more about about price and where it comes from than the thought of the gift. That imo, is raising materialist, ungrateful kids. My kids will tell you that they are happy getting anything . My mom is shopping for my 10 year old and and is getting stuff for my 14 year old as well.
