Know it's late but people tend to say they don't trust in rudiments of dollar store brands. When they actually are such a giant industry they have tons of people watching them and checking to make sure it safe. If it wasn't it would be gone instantly. I'm not mad just wanted you to think about it 😊. Love the video by the way

I get the nite time liquid from the Dollar Tree all the time and it works absolutely great!. Knocks me out Cold and keeps me sleeping until the morning. Definitely worth it for that one at least

I actually agree with the cheese part. My dad and I went to our dollar tree & bought the cheese and when he wanted to broil cheese on bread it made a weird popping sound as if you popped a chips bag. Never again. We stick to buying the cheese from our regular grocery store.

I just don't get people being afraid to buy food or cleaning products from the dollar store. It's exactly the same as the one in stores. It's either - Reject stock sold to the store from an over order, independent brands (which brands like Dawn, Palmolive and others were "off" brands before Proctor and Gamble sold them to upmarkets. Nothing in the dollar store is "watered down." everything is tested and has a standard. A lot of the cleaning products you buy there are concentrated, and smaller in size which is why they can be sold at cheap. Of you're okay with buying cheap brands from the supermarket then you should be okay with Dollar Tree brands

The point of the name brand cereal is that it's travel friendly. I personally like the zip lock bag even the cups for the mini oreos. It's reusable. If you're on a road trip it's cheaper than a gas station for a quick snack. Not everything has to be based on what's the cheaper unit price or ounce. When you have $5 who gives a fuck about what the biggest value when all you want is a simple meal...chips, drink, candy etc.

Alright I know this video is old, but here's my thoughts on some of items she mentioned: 1. Gift wrap and bags are a definite go to. The bigger rolls of wrapping paper do feel cheaper, but i still would rather save my money. Same with the cards.. they're cheesy af, but most cards are. 2. The batteries are intended for "low drain" items. I've used them in my daughters toys and depending on how heavily she was using them they lasted anywhere from 1-6months (before needing changed; not the whole pack). So to me its worth it. 3. The cheese is gross. Don't do it. 4. Most of the cleaning products are just as good as the name brands. 5. Their make-up, lotion, other beauty products aren't poisoned lmao. The way she kept saying "we really don't know what's in these" threw me off. They're not deadly girl, the ingredients are on the back. You can find good things if you look hard enough. The hand soaps are fine too..even the "off brand". They always have the name brand ones too though. 6. All medicine HAS to be FDA approved or it wouldn't be sold. So again, its not poisoned. Its the same shit, just cheaper. 7. Vitamins are iffy since they aren't FDA approved. Research all vitamins before purchasing, not just dollar trees. Sorry for the novel lol. Figured i would give my opinion since ive used a lot of the items she mentioned.

Cheyenne Bamford (1 month ago)
I have to completely disagree with this. I buy batteries there all the time and they last just as long as any other brand. LAs totally awesome cleaner is the best; not sure why you claimed that it’s “watered down” when it literally tells you not to use it full concentration on anything. The makeup is great if they carry the colors you like. Off brand is usually just as good as name brand with most things in my experience

For a while my local Dollar Tree was getting shipments of name-brand whole wheat bread that typically costs about $4 in the grocery store. We stocked up every week and froze what we didn't use. It got us through some really lean times! Yay, Dollar Tree!

I have always gotten good paper and scissors there. I have also had mixed feelings from other youtubers. Some say yes some say no.

Idk. I have bought alot of stuff from Dollar Tree over the years.Stuff that I still have to this day..Dollar Tree rocks when you first move into a place and don't have stuff. Their Assured brand is good on alot of stuff. Really just the laundry detergent I dont buy from there because we buy the family size.

Read the product then you will know what's in it. Some cleaning products started in dollar store then moved to bigger stores Fabulosso and awesome orange.

Vitamins and supplements do not have to be regulated by the FDA and thus many brands don't hold up in consumer testing, name brands included. Medication however, IS regulated. Off brands and name brands must declare all ingredients accurately. Off brands Dollar Tree medication is no exception and therefore is just as effective as a name brand from a grocery store.

In office supplies, your video panned over a pen attached to a D ring. Those are awesome for anyone who has to wear a reflective vest at work! You have to take a little glue on the threads otherwise it will unscrew during a normal work week and you will be stuck with no pen. But a spot of superglue or similar will make a perfect tool for anyone that has to write things in an outdoors environment where carrying a normal pen can lead to loosing or forgetting.

LA Colors makeup is terrible. Horrible. The foundation? The texture is like wax. You put it on your face and it doesn't blend, it doesn't spread out. It gunks up in patches on your face.  You have to mix it in with moisturizer to even get it to actually go on your face. Dollar Tree sometimes has ELF and Wet N Wild stuff, and those brands are fine. The food is mostly awful except for the odd stuff you find that's actually name brand, like the microwave cinnabon bites, those are nice.

Wrapping paper, a dollar roll. You get what you pay for. Garbage paper that is see through and tears all too easily.

I disagree about the batteries. I buy their alkaline batteries and they work out well for me. Batteries at stores are expensive so I've saved lots of money buying them at the Dollar Tree. Otherwise her advice on most everything else is good.

That's funny because I just got finished watching a youtube video where a study was done and dollar store brand batteries are no different than the famous make brand batteries. I use dollar store brand batteries all of the time and they do last just as long.

LOL the vitamins at any store are questionable. The decongestants were recommended to me by a nurse practitioner. If unsure run it by your local pharmacist. The ingredients are the same and they fall under the same regulations.

I use Family Dollar which belongs to the Dol!at Tree Family. I purchased some off the wall type of macaroni and cheese dinner because the price was right. I no longer get it home, prepare it, and I got sick on it. I was blowing chunks that night! I got in bed, put on my radio and let it lull me to sleep when I started to blow chunks again because I had a little bit of Coca Cola. I was OK the following day but I had to take it easy for a little while

I found out that Name Brand Companies process and sell products under a second Brand Name label that many people wouldn't recognize. Just because you don't recognize the name on the product label doesn't mean that it's an inferior product. It may be a Named Brand product in another state or Canada and produced by a major Named Brand company in that State or Canada. Like you said read the label and check the ingredients. For a dollar ($1.00) why NOT give it a try. I've seen dollar store food in major markets selling at higher prices.
