Most of you know that I get my sunglasses at the Dollar Tree. I lose them and break them at record pace, so it helps that they only cost a dollar.
The Dollar Tree is an amazing place of happiness. At least it is for me….don’t judge! Mom and I were recently in the store and took the time to walk up and down the aisles and see what they have to offer. And yes, if you must know, I needed to get another pair of sunglasses…
Tons of School and Office Supplies
Dollar Tree has entire rows devoted to school/office supplies. Pens, pencils, markers, highlighters, sticky notes (in all shapes and sizes), and even scissors and tape and such. When I think about the fact that sticky notes at regular stores can be more than $4 a pack – it just makes sense to take a look at the dollar store first.
Books, Coloring and Activity Books
Hardback books for a buck! I think that I see some resale possibilities here! Anyway – they have a huge selection of books plus all sorts of coloring books for kids. You could make a great gift basket for a child’s birthday with coloring and activity books and crayons from Dollar Tree for way less than $10. And that includes a great gift bag and everything!
I know, I know. Wedding stuff from the dollar store? YES! They have so many glass containers that could be used for small centerpieces. All you have to do is google search for ideas or check out Pinterest. They even have the colored glass beads to fill the jars up! They also have all sorts of other wedding items including those cute little bottles of bubbles that you can give your guests so that you don’t end up getting plastered with bird seed.
They have the neatest things for decorating your house. I really loved those decals that you can stick to the walls. They had a large selection and so many adorable stickers for baby and kids rooms. ONE DOLLAR!!! And I am aware that plastic fruit may not be down everyone’s decorating alley. However, these could be really cute in a kitchen with the right basket or even used in a bowl as a centerpiece for your table. And it never goes bad or attracts those annoying little flies…
Who doesn’t need, or know someone who needs, Spiderman or Ironman body wash? And a Hello Kitty toothbrush? I was surprised that they had Colgate brand toothbrushes for only a dollar. They have makeup and lip gloss as well. I got a few things so I will have to let you know what I think. I sure do like lip gloss for a dollar though considering what the last tube cost me elsewhere.

Hope that you think to stop by your local Dollar Tree sometime soon. Be sure to pick up a pair of these! Everyone needs margarita shaped sunglasses!
