Here are the best deals I spotted in the Dollar General ad for May 31 - June 7, 2015.
If you plan to become a regular couponer here, I strongly recommend building a personal relationship with your store's general manager so the cashiers don't freak out at the sight of your coupon binder.
Bringing a copy of the Dollar General coupon policy is always a smart idea too! The policy updated in December 2014, so you might need to print yourself a new copy.

- Finally, give two $2 off Tresemme coupons from the 5/17 Red Plum inserts, the $1 off Caress coupon from the 5/17 Red Plum insert, and two 95 cents off coupons from the 3/29 Smartsource inserts.
- Those five coupons will take a total of $6.90 off your purchase.
- So that means you'll pay $2.55 out of pocket for all five items -- or just 51 cents apiece!
