>>7257664 I hardly buy brand name anything, because most of what I buy doesn't really come branded. Vegetables, dried beans and bulk grains generally don't have brand names on them. Most brand name stuff is convenience products and luxury products. I don't buy much of either aside from coffee. >hasn't shopped cheap I feed two people lunch and dinner five or six days a week for about $35.
>>7257703 at least malt o meal used to be able to afford to have commercials. I guess it doesn't come in bags anymore?
the commercials were great because of how they weren't so much presenting their product to make you aware of it as they were trying to convince you to buy it and justify is existence
>l-look here [opens box of popular cereal] see theres a bag in here, all cereal comes in bags guys! ours is f-fine too! just because it doesn't have a box doesn't mean anything! please buy our cereal....please
>>7257652 They sell some items much cheaper than other stores, but some items are more expensive. The catch is while you're there, you're likely to buy enough of the things they make a higher profit margin on that they remain in the black.

>>7257652 Most of it is garbage like pic related. And most of the items that are name brand actually cost more at the dollar store than they would at walmart. Poor people can't do math so they only think they're getting a good deal.
People are confusing 99cent Only Stores with generic "dollar" stores. You can buy good fresh produce at the 99cent store. I avoid most pre-packaged food there but sometimes good name brand stuff shows up. Pretty good store overall but some stuff is cheaper per weight/quantity at real grocery stores
