That's a great one! Mystery shoppers obviously can't say they are a mystery shopper, but it does change their tone rather quickly.


On another note, my DG just opened about 3 weeks ago. What are the chances that they have penny items??

I will say that it will probably be less likely, however one of our stores just relocated and we thought it could be possible that they simply transfer the old store's items to the new, and if they had any pennied items out on the shelves that it could be possible that they would be in the new building. I'm not sure how the inventory will be if its brand new, but if it's close enough you could give it a walk through.

We have several DG within a 5 mile radius and the hubby and I went to just about all of them that we hadn't been to this past Saturday. We found some clothes and really cheap forever cuddlee. The first store had mostly men's t-shirts and men's and boy's sleep pants. We did find a few boy's dinosaur t shirts and a lego ninja one and some Bobbie brooks girl's/women's long sleeved shirts too.

The cashier wanted to play dumb to the penny items but she was quick to go get her store manager. My husband took the cart up front (not in line) and went to add a few snacks to the cart while I was finishing up grabbing the last few bobbie brooks shirts. The store manager approached me in the isle and said "ma'am I'm not going to be able to sell those items to you If they weren't in your cart before you got to the check out. I can let you have what you got in your cart but that is it."

She expected me to hand over to her what I had in my hands. I said "ma'am I'm not through shopping and I have not been to the register to check out I only had gone for a price check" She proceeded to get an attitude with me and said "well I will let you get what you got right there but I won't let you go get more." I replied with "You wont let me? So you're telling me that you're not going to let me finish shopping in the store because you're worried that I might find something else that could ring up a penny?" She opened her mouth to say something but didn't. She walked away.

I was waiting to have to correct her on the procedures, but I let it go and finished shopping. I got a few other items from the clearance isle too. When I was checking out finally (a good 15 minutes later) the cashier said "what do yall do, do you just go around?" Im assuming she meant if we go searching for these. I said no, but couldn't pass up one a good price like that. I paid her my $0.39 and left. The manager sure did look pretty mad when we was stocking the shelves.

The other store I found two baby outfits and two kid's shirts. There was no issue there but the manager said as we were leaving "they must be reading those blogs, but this isn't that many compared to what I sent back to corporate." While there an employee from another store came in looking for happy nappers the small ones. She said the stores were pennying them out and she wanted to find some. So that is something else to look for small happy nappers. Supposedly those are a penny too.

Funniest thing just happened.....


I went to a dollar general and was searching through the items to find Penny stuff. The manager comes up to me and asks what I am doing and then looks at my cart. He asks I I do this often and I say yes. He then leaves and while I am walking around the store looking at other things he comes back and says " make you a deal... You get all of these things for free and I also want you to come back every month around this time and search for more things. Anything you find you get 90% of it free and the other 10% you get a 90% discount. I said deal. You may want to ask your stores about it. Having penny items on there floor isn't good for them. They may work something out and stop all the hassle.

Yeah you are right and I agreed to it because I hate being hassled. I would rather pay then getting it free without coupons.

They're the same as I stated in a previous post but you need to think about what looks new. Are there a crap ton on the shelf? If so you know its not a penny unless you're just incredibly lucky.
