  1. What I want to know is how do you know that the pregnancy test won't work until the 2nd trimester. Do you know that from personal experience?

  2. i was wondering about that too.??? Some things aren't cheaper to buy at the dollar store. Last time we went to Honks I was going to buy containers to organize my pantry with and they were SO tiny and a dollar each! So I went to walmart and got a 2 pack of pretty big containers for 3 dollars! (caitlin)

  3. I used the pregnancy test from the dollar store and it detected I was pregnant. I was only 3 weeks pregnant (or so). It worked for me so I will definitely buy it next time.

  5. (cristin's mom) I think you need to give us disclaimers on ALL the products; I wouldn't want to spend my money on something that didn't work the way I thought it would. (i.e. glue gun only works if you plug it in to an electrical outlet, windex only sprays if you twist the cap to "on", paint brushes only work if you dip them in paint, candles only burn if you light them with a match, and Catholic figurines are only Catholic figurines if you add the appropriate accessories---They can easily be Pilgrims or Muslims, etc. By the way, how much will I save buying those figurines at the dollar store versus Neiman Marcus?

  7. I'm all about the catholic figurines.

    I love the $1 store pregnancy tests. They may have weird things, i.e. one has a dropper. So you have to pee in a little cup and then use a dropper to put 4 drops on the stick. I thought that that was totally lame so I just peed on the stick and it didn't even work! But you can buy like 6 pregnancy tests for the price of one generic cheapo test at regular stores. Pretty cool I think.

    This is a good post. I always forget that I should go to the $1 store first to see what I can get cheaper.

  8. My sister bought a few digital pregnancy test from target but they came up with errors. Then I suggested the 99 cent store test because a friend of mine had the same problem with the digital kind. 5 minuets later we knew she was going to have 3 kids. They work, I used 2 for Chloe and both were positive. It was right when I should have started my period.

  9. I have never had a dollar store pregnancy test work. I think I tried about 6 when I was pregnant with my 2nd...I will stick to the Target brand from now on :). I can't believe everyone else is having good luck with them...maybe I peed on it wrong ;)
