I used to never shop at dollar stores, then when we were in ca I went into 99 Cents Only. Wow!! I was changed!! We have a little local dollar store about a mile from my house, and then another local one in the next town. In that same town is a local one that gets a lot of organics!! And then, a Dollar Tree just opened nearby to me.
I am addicted, esp to Dollar Tree!! It is always a challenge to find stuff not made in China there. I do occasionally buy stuff made in CHina at the dollar store, though, bc it is after all, only a dollar. Only when I am desperate though!!
So, some of my Dollar Tree finds:
I got Made in the Usa Cookie sheets!! They also had muffin tins, pie plates, cake pans, square pans, ou name it. Really nice buckets, shampoo, candles, picture frames, light bulbs, lotions, cereal, salsa, mascara, baskets, cleaning supplies. They right now have sweaters and adorable hats for kids. We buy all of our pla dough from there. It is made in CHina, but so is Play DOh, and my ds goes through way more than I can make, plus we forget about the playdough and it goes bad when i make it.
At the local ones, I buy candy bars(4 for a dollar), gardening gloves, hair bands, sponges, spaghetti, food coloring. I just saw they have a three pound bag of unpopped popcorn there for a dollar. They also carry Snapple Beans, which are jeppy beans with NO food coloring! Two packs for a dollar. Last year, I bought my seeds there. 10 packs for a dollar.
Any other dollar store addicts?
