10 Things You Should Get at Dollar Tree

On my most recent trip to Dollar Tree I decided to take a few pictures. This way everyone can see all the great stuff the dollar store has to offer. After a long hiatus from dollar store shopping I was amazed at how much good stuff was there. So I've compiled a list of 10 things you can get at the dollar store.

#1 Party Supplies

Dollar Tree was stocked with party supplies galore. Whether you need them for a birthday party, bridal shower, baby shower, or festive holiday, they had it. Why pay all that money at Party City? I would advise though that you pick and choose the items you get for your party, because too much matchy matchy can be a little tacky and boring.

#2 Children's Books

They had plenty of children's books, both for reading, drawing, and activities. I'd say stop by before you head on a road trip with the kids to purchase them a few distractions. All the kiddie's favorite characters were present from Elmo to Dora the Explorer.

#3 Kleenex

Who doesn't need Kleenex? Nuff said.

#4 Mouth Care. From your lips to your gums, Dollar Tree's got you covered. (sidenote: Has anyone else noticed how the price of lip moisturizer has skyrocketed?)

#5 Loofas

#6 iPhone Cases

No need to spend a fortune on a new iPhone case. That's right, you can get one for a buck.

#7 Dishwashing liquid

I personally make my own dishwashing liquid from scratch (which I will tell you about some other time), but for those of you who purchase yours, they have it for a dollar.

#8 Water

You need it to live, it's good for you, get some.

#9 Travel Cups

For those on-the-go cups of tea or coffee.

 #10 Gift Bags

They had quite the assortment of gift bags, including these plain ones, and nicely decorated ones for special occasions. The decorated ones were on the caliber of the kind you'd pay $4 for at Target.

And cuz I love you like that I'm throwing in a surprise 11th item, soap! They have multi-packs of Zest, Caress, and Irish Springs for much less than you'd pay at the grocery store,  plus individual bars of my personal favorite, Yardley.

  3. This is great! I never thought of getting mouth care and kleenex at a dollar store. I can definitely save some money doing that :)

  4. tissue paper, brown kraft paper, ribbons! which one do you go to?

  5. Thanks, I actually picked up tissue paper on my visit and forgot to add it to the list. I must have overlooked the kraft paper, but will be on the lookout the next time I go, that stuff is so useful. I go to the one in Towson on Joppa Road.
