Make Potty-Training FUN (& AFFORDABLE) with Dollar General


One huge milestone in a child’s life is potty-training. As daunting as it sounds, it is a process that can be made FUN & AFFORDABLE! How? Let’s discuss.

Before you dive head first into Pull-Ups training pants, make sure your child is completely ready! If your child shows interest in the big boy/girl potty and lets you know before they soil their diaper, chances are your child is ready! Before you rejoice, take a deep breath and realize your child will go through ups and downs and your patience is just as important as your child’s, and it definitely will be tested upon. They will depend on you to show them the way and require your encouragement and support. So, to make this process FUN & AFFORDABLE, here are a few of my tips!


Head to Dollar General’s Digital Coupon site and sign up to get over $200 in savings. You can also get a $2 OFF coupon for Pull-Ups.

Go to Dollar General and purchase the Pull-Ups of your child’s choice!

Pull Ups Face


  1. Parents of young kids have so many lovely, helpful gadgets! Where was this when my son was potty training? lol

    • I know what you mean! It just gets more helpful by the generation. I bet they’ll have them teaching themselves by the time the next generation comes LOL!

  2. Perfect timing for this blog post as I just switched my 2-year old son to Pull Ups 2 weekends ago. I know from previous experience that this will take a while and needed a refresher course!!!

    • Oh, that’s so good! I am sure he will do great! Best of luck, Mommy (and, of course, to your tot)! Feel free to sign up for coupons. It will make a pack of 25 only $8 + tax!!

  3. Dollar General truly does have everything!!!!

  4. My 2 1/2 year old granddaughter is just starting to go to the bathroom. Actually she just wants to sit on the toilet and then wipe herself and flush – but it’s the right step at least. I like the treat box idea. Pull-Ups can get expensive so the coupon is helpful.

    • Yes! This is extremely helpful because the Pull-Ups will be $2 off and they are $10. So it’s a great savings! Your granddaughter sounds like she’s on the right track! Good luck to her! ?

  5. I’m thankful I’m way past potty training 🙂

  6. I do NOT miss potty training stages! lol

  7. That’s a fun box of treats!

  8. The treat box is a great idea! Maybe you should devise one for the parents, too. Why should the kids have all the fun? 🙂

  9. Your son is so cute!

  10. Your little guy is SO CUTE! I have loved watching him grow on your blog <3

  11. Huggies did not work for either of my kids. Nor did incentives. I basically had to wait until they felt like doing it!

    • Yeah, every child is different. Pull-Ups and buying my son HIS choice of underwear really helped for me.

  12. I love the new designs that they have now. We didn’t do pull ups for very long with the twins or my eldest… after we purchased underwear, they boys all wanted to wear that and used that as incentive to potty train, so it was really easy. But, I really like that there is that option to have 😉

  13. Such great ideas. Your little guy is too adorable!

  14. Oh wow!! What a great idea! I wish I had thought of this when I was potty training my little ones.

    • Really helps! I use it for day-to-day behavior, as well. You can find a ton of cheap toys and books just about anywhere! 🙂

  15. Your son is such a cutie pie!

  16. OMG how cute is your son!? These are some good tips, I definitely used candy as incentive!
