Dollar General Ad 10/18: Best Halloween Sales & Deals

Dollar General deals
Here are the best deals I spotted in the Dollar General ad for October 18 - 31, 2015.

This ad was not in the Sunday papers, but is available as an in-store circular or here if you want to see a full copy.
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.
