CBC Marketplace recently went shopping at both Dollarama and Dollar Tree to compare which store came out on top for the same basket of items.
Personally, I wouldn’t have purchased any of the items they did their test with.
For deals, there are numerous Youtube channels and social media accounts dedicated to dollar store “finds”, which you may want to follow.
With that said, after watching the segment, I’m inclined to download a price-per-unit calculator app for my smartphone.
This would come in especially handy nowadays, since so many items in supermarkets have either increased in price or shrunk in package size.
Do you have additional tips or questions about anything in this post? Please leave a comment below.
