Things I miss | Dollar General Shopping Sprees (Sponsored)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Dollar General for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


You know it is rough times
when your thoughts about "going home"
primarily revolve around
the stores you would shop in
and the restaurants you would eat at.

So is it a problem that when I think about
going home to El Paso, TX
most of my thoughts revolve around
eating at Chicos Tacos
and shopping at the Dollar General?

Back in the day,
the Dollar General
was where I would go
to stock up for the annual house move.

What? You didn't move apartments/homes
every year at tax time?
Overshare much?

In any event,
with $20 in your pocket,
you could set up your kitchen and your bathroom
and pick up a few really cool other things too.

What I never DID know
was that you could also get 
styled pretty there.

I mean, I knew you could buy toiletries and even makeup.
But I didn't know you could buy some of the hottest fashion trends around.

Dollar General Spring Apparel

I think I did create a baby basket
full of goods from Dollar General
so I think I knew that they had
cute baby goods.

But as summer comes around
and I find myself dressing in really simple
shifts and the like, I really don't feel like
I need to pay $50 for a jersey knit maxi dress.

And I definitely don't need to pay $90 for the cute bracelets and earrings
that would take that simple dress to simply stunning.

This, my friends, is where the Dollar General Apparel Book comes in.

(HInt, if you don't have a DG in your neck of the woods,
get a peek at the book by typing in 79924).

Leaving the short dress and the hat behind,
I'd totally buy everything else on this page.
I even have the perfect sweater to make that maxi dress work ready.
Those cute socks are to die for.

The rest of it would be great
for yoga class
or gardening.

Speaking of yoga class
(Hatha Hot Yoga and Yin Hot Yoga...that's a post for another time)

$8 Yoga capri pants
and $6 - $8 performance bras and tees
are prices I could layer on with abandon.

I have to layer my performance bras and tees.

But even those super cute
jean looking knit capris in fun colors.

Those would work with my curves AND the colors can not be beat.

I could stop there.
But why?

Before Yoga, I thought I was going to take up swimming again.
With a $16 swimsuit, I could totally afford some flippers and goggles.

And do you spy what I spy?
That $5 Missoni-ish iphone case?
It, alone, would ALMOST be worth 
spending the points to get home and buy it.

Just. Saying.

You should totally like Dollar General on Facebook and follow Dollar General on Twitter.

Clearly, they are splashing out with pops of color
and awesomeness
that can't be missed.
