Actually I was coming here to let you guys know that I was talking to management and she knows I would never do anything to get them into trouble.I guess someone else was in the store last week before I was and got cart loads of penny items and gave the cashier a lot of grief about not being aloud to sell penny items.....so the cashier gave in.DM found out about it and fired the cashier :-(
I didn't know this and they let me go through with the few items I had last week and then again Monday.plus I found out that the reason they have been doing price checks on hand held is because DM is also coming down hard on price checks.
Same DM also said that this store and surrounding DGs that this person is DM of is no longer take manu coupons with $5/$30 or any other $5 off dollar general coupon.I felt really bad thinking I might have caused this but manager told me it wasn't me ,it was another couponer that is causing so much grief.plus she said "how the heck could it be you when you've been on your couponing break all summer ?" Haha that made me feel better knowing I wasn't the cause,but feeling bad that my fave DG has been getting hit so hard from the DM.
I was there today getting decorations for my bus for first day of school tomorrow and seen total work out kit (for use with wii fit) that was marked $20.I just got my physical for my CDL and doc said I gained 6 pounds so decided to put it in my cart...it rang up a penny.asked if it was ok for me to buy it and she said as long as I get only 1 or 2 things it would be ok but don't make a habit of it.so I think my penny hunting days are over.

That just sounds fishy to me. How come the DM that called me last weekend said its corp policy to sell it? Especially when everyone else is getting the same response but you.

From what I understood this DM is extremely hard on their employees ,she fired 3 employees in the last 2 months because of coupons and just last week because of the cart load of penny items.I guess this DM came in with a folder with copies she got of receipts and showed it to the employees and one of them was a receipt full of penny items.(this was before I new about penny items) and proceeded to fire the cashier.the manager says this DM reads the rules and interprits it the way she sees fit and is backed by corp.

Sorry meant to add that they were told 1 or 2 penny items and no more.no cart loads
I'm ok,this manager and employees are not saying this just to appease me.I would rather do what they want and keep my good rep with them than fight over penny items.

Once again everybody, it is the policy of Dollar General to sell penny items, and here's the rule: WHATEVER U BRING UP IN YOUR CART HAS TO BE SOLD. YOU'RE NOT ALLOWED TO GO BACK AND GET MORE, BUT WHATEVER YOU HAVE THEY HAVE TO ALLOW YOU TO PURCHASE IT!!! Of course they're gonna get mad and frustrated b/c it's their fault for still having it on the shelf, but it's store policy. I HAVE CALLED AND SPOKEN TO NOT ONLY DMS' BUT REGIONAL MANAGERS (higher authority) AS WELL. THEY HAVE TO SELL AND THEY KNOW IT. When we first started "penny shopping", we had some problems of course, but I familiarized myself with the managers of my district so whenever there was resistance from the employees or store mgrs., I just cut them short and called corporate. For our district the number is 1-800-678-9258.

Finally found Happy Nappers at two stores--all rang up as $20
It's only the small happy nappers that are a penny.

We live in Southeast Alabama, and some months ago in our local DG stores they clearanced all Yellow Star toys to .25!!! We might have had over $400 worth of toys and paid only $19 and some change. Now that's a deal b/c some of these toys were reg. priced at $50!!!!! They have since been pennied out b/c we've found a couple we left behind!

the dollar general store that i have is small so they dont get much stuff in as all the others. But I am also the only one that goes in there for the deals and penny items. Its been three years of going there, two employees let me walk around with their price checker. In exchange i help fix up the shelf...sort of do there work. Which i have to shorten my trips now because i have two children and cannot spend an hour anymore doing it. but i will try my best to update everyone on what i find. But i havent had to spend over 20.00 for christmas, ever in the past three years of doing this. I was also able to help a lot of families and donate.

I'm sorry, I should've been more specific. Only the ones w/ the bright looking yellow star. Some of the stars are dark like a mustard color and they're not.

The two disney table and chair sets (I posted pics of those), princess and the frog table and folding chair sets, lots of games such as: freddie the flying fish, meatball madness, shaking bacon, fuzzoodles, crazy pens, and sooooo many more. I'll try to post pics of everything. I'm still at work rite now so it's hard to think of everything.

Traci, you are silly. I'm lmbo, but I was shaking too when I went shopping and discovered they were on clearance. I like sharing b/c we're in different states and DG stores don't often carry the same items, so I'll try to keep current as I can and you do the same. Thanks
