In recent years, the country has experienced a wave of frugal storefronts selling everything from stationary to seafood. Stores like Dollar Tree, Family Dollar and Dollar General cater to the budget-conscious now outnumber Starbucks and McDonald's in the country. With all those stores there’s bound to be some secrets that we're dying to learn. So here is some insight on what employees of dollar stores has to say.  Although you can find practically anything at dollar stores, customers get the best deal sticking with paper products. At least, that's what employees buy most frequently. Toilet paper, paper towels, birthday cards, candy, balloons, plastic ware, paper plates, envelopes, stationary products. Employees know you won't linger to long in the store. Having limited space with easily accessible items is by design. Balloons are busting with profit. Most Dollar Tree and many other dollar store locations have a counter devoted to Mylar balloons intended for birthday parties and other events. Turns out they're very profitable for the store.
