I went to the 99 cent store for my monthly routine 'personal care' shopping, instead of where I usually go. I bought several items, and the total was a little over 8 dollars (usually my bill is between $30 and $40). Most of the items are of amazing quality, even though they have a generic brand. Do you regularly shop

3. People have been telling me to go to these stores, but I usually only go annually, because of lack of time, out of the way and not convenient, don't want to change my routine, and being plain ole stubborn. Are you also hesitant to shop at a new store, because of one of the reasons I listed?
