The video posted to Reddit included a series of products that the user reportedly found at Goodwill, including bags, candles, and signs, that were seemingly from Dollar Tree.

The items appeared to be 50 cents to $1.50 pricier than when bought at Dollar Tree, which is known for prices that hover around $1.

Users commented that they too have experienced this when shopping at Goodwill, a store that many flock to for discounted prices on second hand items.
