For years I’ve heard the word “probiotic” but never really thought about it or if I needed it. I knew that a lot of yogurt brands advertised they contained probiotics but again, I didn’t necessarily ask myself if my body needed them.

I’ve read a lot of articles that talk about how junky and poorly made items are that you can pick up at dollar stores and while I agree that you have to double-check expiration dates (like I do even at the grocery store) and that toys can easily break (just like at any other store), for the most part, I enjoy shopping there and find great buys.
