The Best Things To Buy At The Dollar Store

Get me in a dollar store and magically the money disappears from my wallet.  Even if I go in for one thing, I end up buying other things because they’re only a dollar.  Have you done that too?  What are the best  things to buy at the dollar store?Some things aren’t worth buying at the dollar store, even if they’re only a buck, because they’re not great quality or a good value.  That being said, there are some things you should buy at the dollar store.  Think of the money you’ll save for something else…like another trip to the dollar store!

Gift Wrap:

I used to pay an arm and a leg for pricey gift wrap at other stores.  No more.  The gift wrap at the dollar store works just as well and even has lines on the back to help cut the paper in a straight line.  Whoever came up with that idea was brilliant.  No more jagged wrapping paper.

Greeting Cards:

Have you priced greeting cards recently?  $4 and $5 for a card?  Overpriced.   At the dollar store, they often sell them two for a dollar.  Put the money you would’ve spent on a pricey card toward the gift.

Drinking Glasses:

The drinking glasses I’ve bought at the dollar store are great.  They’re cute and functional and they were only a buck.  Who cares if you break one?  It was only a buck.

Cleaning Supplies:

Sponges, buckets, soap and similar cleaning supplies are necessary items which you can’t beat for a dollar.  I’ve even seen name brands too, which is great if you’re brand/product loyal.

Hand Soap:

The same brand name hand soap I buy at the dollar store sells for $1. 50 or more in the big box stores.  Why pay more when you don’t have to?

Holiday Decorations:

Halloween, Christmas, Easter, Thanksgiving.  Whatever the holiday, I always find cute decorations at the dollar store.  Since they’re only a dollar, I buy more than one and save it for next year.  Many of the decorations I hang on my door are from the dollar store and people can’t believe it when I tell them that.  If it looks more expensive, that’s just an added bonus.

Books, balloons, coloring books and some kid’s toys:

A buck for a new book, even a hardcover one?  Now that’s a good deal.  I’ve found dozens of books for kids, coloring books and they feature a huge selection of balloons which they’ll blow up for you.  Great for any occasion.

I’m sure I’ve forgotten some other items that I’d recommend buying at the dollar store.  As you can see, it doesn’t take long to fill up a cart.  See you at the dollar store!
