$5 off a $25 Purchase Scenario

I wanted to show y’all what $5 off $25 scenario at Dollar General could look like tomorrow!  What I like to do is combine sale items with coupons to get even more value.  You can mix and match from this list depending on what you need for your family.    I’ve also included a video from my last shopping trip.  I mentioned in the video I like to wait until the new ad starts (the prices change at 7pm the night before the new ad, not the case with all stores), but this week there is NOT a new ad so it wouldn’t matter what time you went.  While you can not combine any other DG store coupons into the $5 off $25, you should be able to throw in some clearance items!  You can also view scenarios from previous weeks as many deals are still available:
