Dollar General Penny Items For December


Dollar General Penny Items December

Did you know you can penny shop at Dollar General? It isn’t for the faint of heart!

Look at what I found the last time I went penny shopping at Dollar General.

How to do it? Looks at the item’s tags or the descriptions I have for you below. Look in the store. Don’t ask for the penny items, they don’t know where they are. All penny items are supposed to be removed before they penny out, but sometimes things get left behind. So be prepared to do your due diligence. Look everywhere and keep things tidy. You don’t want to be that person that comes in the store and leaves it a mess. Why would that even be an option?

I haven’t penny shopped since March. You can see what I found here. But I’ve scoured the internet to find the latest penny deals. Check my last two posts for more. But mind you, sometimes the tags reset.

If the item you thought was a penny item turns out to not be, kindly let the cashier know you don’t want the item. Or buy it. It’s up to you! But be nice.

Ok, rant done. Ready for some penny items? Here’s the latest Dollar General penny items for December.

    White Dot clothing in Plus Size YOGA & STRETCH DEMIN have reset.. ????

    I’d stumbled across a slew of them and knew someone that could have used them. .. They all rang as full price.

    Just a head’s up for anyone that may run across the same thing. ????????

      Wow! I haven’t found anything like that. But I guess it can happen. I’d apologize for the inconvenience and see what they offer. They might sell it to you for a penny (if they know about pennying things), or they might sell you it at a discounted price. Possibly even full price. I’ve honestly no clue! But it sounds like you are great at the hunt!!

    Yellow dot clothes are not pennied here in Cocoa, Florida. They are S16 here.

      The only yellow, blue, grey & pink dots that I’ve found to be a penny are S13, S14, F13 & F14.
      S16 would be Spring & Summer of this year, meaning they’re new items.
      The only penny items you’ll find (from what I’ve read on this blog and seen myself) are the ones with previous years, excluding ’15. Once ’15 items are placed on clearance, we don’t have to worry about those at all…YET…
      It will be AFTER the clearance is over that they’ll become a penny.

      Hope that helps ????
