Texas shoppers, remember that Tax Free weekend is August 7 - 9 this year! So I recommend shopping these deals on either Friday or Saturday for the best prices.
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.
