Cascade Action Pacs - Another Dollar General Find!

I'm definitely a brand-name snob when it comes to dishwasher liquid. Have you ever thought, "Oh, I'll just buy the generic this week - it'll get us by." Let me just tell you...no it won't. I mean, if you want to rewash your dishes and then have to hand wash some of them to try and chip off the stuck on crud, then by all means, go ahead and get the cheap stuff.

For the life of me, I can't remember where I acquired this coupon - $2 off Cascade Action Pacs or Action Pacs Complete. It's a stiff coupon that has perforations around the edges - I'm thinking it came in the mail with something or other. Anyway, if you have this coupon, take it to your local Dollar General. In my area, they have 15 pks. for $3.50 and 12 pks. for $3.00. After the coupon, you are only paying a dollar or buck fifty for dishwasher soap! That is my kind of deal.

From my experience, when you request samples online, they typically come with high value coupons. So, sometimes it's worth taking a few seconds to fill out a form. The next thing you know, you have a surprise in the mail...hey, anything that is NOT a bill is a surprise, right?

Right now, if you sign up for P & G Everyday Solutions, you can get a 2 ct. sample of Cascade Action Pacs in the mail. Also, every quarter, you can request a P & G Brand Sampler which is a whole box of goodies! I just received one a week or so ago and it was filled with Tide, Iams cat food, diapers, shampoo, coupons, etc.

Do you have any other great Dollar General finds? Comment and let us all know!

I am the SAME way about brand names, and if I can get them on sale, I'm happy to buy them. There are just some things you can't cheap out on.

Yes! And I used to be a total "off brand" person - because it was SO much cheaper. But, by using coupons/frugal shopping, I now get brand name everything for cheaper than I ever paid for the off brands LOL
