Have you ever been to Dollar Tree? I just love it there! For those of you that don’t know, the Dollar Tree is a store where everything is a dollar or sometimes less. I try not to go unless I need something. It is so easy to drop $20 even though everything is only a dollar. But there are some prices that can’t be beaten! Here are a few of my favorite bargains to buy at Dollar Tree!
Paper plates, napkins, cups, plastic forks, knives, and spoons in all colors are excellent bargains to buy at Dollar Tree, too. This is the best place to pick these up. The prices are the best. Many times they also have plastic serving bowls and platters. They even carry plastic wine and champagne glasses.
Child Themed Party Supplies
I have seen everything from generic pirate and princess themes to Barbie and Spiderman. And when you are on a budget, why blow it all on paper cups. There are enough small trinkets to fill up those loot bags, too!!
You cannot compare Dollar Tree cards to any place else. Seriously. The only way you can give a card to Aunt Peggy any cheaper is to make it yourself with printer paper and your kid’s crayons! All my cards come from Dollar Tree. With prices at a dollar each or even TWO FOR A DOLLAR, why would you spend $4 (or more) at Target? I mean, you know I love me some Target, but you also know I am tighter than bark to a tree!!
My husband loves their “scrubbies”. They are those round metal pot scrubbers that are fantastic for cleaning burnt on peppers and onions in a cast iron skillet that my husband scorched while cooking them outside on the grill. It took DAYS to get that pan clean. But hey, it didn’t heat up the kitchen so, win!!! I also buy all my scrub brushes of any kind there. Anything I need to wash dishes or scrub a floor, I get them from DT!
As I am not a chemical cleaning supply person, they sure do have a huge section of cleaning supplies. For me, old fashioned baking soda and white vinegar is also a great price at Dollar Tree! Add some reusable cloths and you are my kind of cleaner!!
I love organizing containers! Each season, Dollar Tree brings out new colors. If you find a specific color, snag more than you think you might need because you never know if that color will disappear. You can always return them. Just double check your store’s return policy first. They also often have a beautiful collection of the clear acrylic drawer organizers as well. I found almost an exact match to the organizer in my utility drawer for a LOT less than I bought it.
Purse Size Tissues
I know. Yes, I said purse size tissues. I am a fan of those small travel size pouches of tissues. And I am not beneath Frozen or Spiderman themed ones, either. Sometimes they have a ten pack for a dollar. Those are the BEST! And it doesn’t matter if it is that cute cartoon girl who wants to be a vet!!
I also like to grab flossers and dental floss, too. Always a good price.
A lot of the stuff for car organizing are some of my favorite things to buy at the Dollar Tree. I got my pen cup, dental floss, the water bottle, and my little clear flip top boxes that I use for hair accessories. These used to hold cotton swabs, but I took them out and put them in the bathroom because I just wanted the box.
Travel Size Toiletries
If you are heading on a trip, I suggest stopping into the DT for some dollar tree bargains on travel size shampoos, conditioners, toothpaste and an assortment of other smaller size travel companions. I was in Target last time I was going on a trip and they wanted $3 for a little bottle of shampoo. Two more dollars and I could have gotten a full size with four times as many ounces. They also have the little clear bottles that you can refill yourself.
Pens, Notebooks, Printer Paper
Any type of office supply products including staplers, paper clips, and rubber bands are some of my favorite dollar tree items. Printer paper is not always there but if you can find it, stock up. because you won’t find a better deal than at Dollar Tree!
Craft and School Supplies
When I was the Assistant Director of our preschool, I was in charge of a lot of shopping. I can’t tell you the loot I would find at DT! We would get printing notebooks every year for students there and all the craft supplies we could. Popcycle sticks and pom poms were among our favorite things from Dollar Tree.
Wrapping Paper, Gift Bags, and Bows
These items are in the top five favorites. it always amazes me how much other places want to charge for wrapping paper! Thin paper with a little design on it that people will rip off and throw away. I have seen it for up to ten dollars!! Nope. Not for me. I buy mine at Dollar Tree. And they have the cutest gift bags, too! From the card to the tissue paper, bows, bags, and even boxes. Anything you need for gift giving, you can find for a steal at DT!
Flashlights and Headlamps
I have noticed some great flashlights and headlamps lately at the Dollar Tree. These make great gifts for any occasion. Perfect for camping!! The LED flashlights are my husbands favorite. We have more flashlights than a family possibly needs.
