Here are the best deals I spotted in the Dollar General ad for May 15 - 21, 2016.
If you plan to become a regular couponer at Dollar General, 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 back in December 2014, so you might need to print yourself a new copy.
Best deals in the 5/15 Dollar General ad

Next, submit your receipt here for a coupon for another FREE 32 oz bottle of Gatorade. So that's like two bottles for a final price of 75 cents, or just 38 cents apiece!
