I love dollar stores, the ones where everything truly costs 1 dollar, or better yet, 99 cents. Every once in a while I'll find something fabulous at the dollar store that I totally didn't expect to find.
Okay, fine. So you don't have gas. Well, some people do. I found little bottles of 15-count Beano Meltaways at the 99 cent store recently! These puppies retail for $6 or more!
This is Sudoku for kids. Instead of all that annoying addition, Sudoko sticker books have stickers instead. These books are hard to find first of all, and second, I only paid 99 cents each! Diego and Backyardigans--a couple of my grandkids' favorites! Sudoku sticker books retail for $5 or more!
Dollar stores sell remainders. These are books that regular bookstores no longer sell for whatever reason. I found a craft book called Pewter Plus recently, and I can't wait to try my hand at some pewter work. Retail price: $22.99.
I like to buy things at dollar stores that are the same no matter where you buy it. Honey fits this bill, because honey is honey is honey. I don't use a lot of honey, so the small bear-shaped honey container from the dollar store is perfect for me. Retail price of honey at the grocery store: Not sure, at least a couple of bucks.
I find name brand bath products like shampoo and body wash at the dollar store all the time. These things aren't cheap at the grocery store so I often buy them at the dollar store. Retail price: More than $1.
Gotta love the dollar store -- especially the truly-a-dollar store. These are great finds. Let's go shopping together!
Penelope, I like Dollar Tree best too. They seem to have good quality stuff more often than some others.
Great finds at the Dollar Store!
4 and 5 are really true. I think my favorite is the Dollar Tree. They truly have unique things that snobs who don't go to these stores, have no idea they would come from such a store. These are great alternatives to the much missed Woolworth's stores. H5
Yes, I've found some good books there. They had a bunch of biographies there a couple of months ago.
I too love the dollar store but hate the ones where I don't realize that not everything is a buck. You can get taken in those stores! I love your finds though.
I love the Dollar Store around the time school starts---tons of paper and pen choices! The Dollar Store in the Midwest and the 99 Cent Store in CA are the very best!
I love my local dollar store. :)
