Stock Up on Toilet Paper Elsewhere
Toilet paper is not one of the many best buys available at Dollar Tree. Although it might seem like a good deal at $1.25, the cost per roll is higher than at Walmart.
Soap Isn’t a Steal
Costco is the place to go if you want to stock up on soap. A 16-bar pack (3.75 ounces) costs $17.99 online. Just 30 cents an ounce, then.
Pain Relievers Are Pricier
At Dollar Tree, a bottle of 40 200 mg ibuprofen caplets costs 3.1 cents each caplet. On the other hand, Walmart's $1.98 bottle of 100 tablets costs just 2 cents each caplet.
You Won’t Save on Cereal
The business sells 3.5-ounce packages of Honey Nut Cheerios and Cinnamon Toast Crunch for $1.25, or almost 36 cents per ounce.
Treats Aren’t So Sweet
The largest version costs $1.74 at Walmart, or 10.9 cents each. The Dollar Tree find has an ounce price of 12.5 cents.
Canned Vegetable Prices Can’t Compete
You're overspending if you pay $1.25 for a can of vegetables at Dollar Tree. Del Monte green beans and Green Giant corn are both available at Dollar Tree.
You Won’t Save on Rice and Pasta
A 14-ounce box of Minute White Rice is available there for $2.85; at Target, it costs $2.59. The price of Pasta Roni Angel Hair Pasta with Herbs at Walmart is $1.22.
Juice Prices Will Squeeze You
While it would be easy to keep the 25-ounce bottle of Ocean Spray cranberry juice in the fridge at work, it is not economical for meals at home.
Brand-Name Laundry Detergent Isn’t a Bargain
Although buying name-brand laundry detergent at Dollar Tree for just $1.25 looks like a great deal, if you do a lot of laundry, it isn't a good purchase.
