Question Everything

What I’m questioning today is the assumed value of the goods at dollar stores. Recently, a Dollar Tree opened near me. At Dollar Tree, everything really is a dollar. I went looking for witch hazel. It was a dollar, but it was six ounces. At WalMart it’s $1.44 for sixTEEN ounces, a far better per-ounce price.

I suspect that inflation has made it very hard to sell a wide selection of goods for just one dollar. Stores like Dollar General that will set a price above one dollar are more likely to have items I need that are a good value for the price.
