Today I'm talking about my new favorite store in the world - Dollar Tree. That's right, boys and girls, Dollar Tree.
I know that many of you have probably been shopping DT for years, but alas, I have not. Until six months ago, I'd probably been in Dollar Tree maybe two times, long ago. I don't recall it being that great back then, and in my mind, I'd lumped it in with all those 99 cent stores, which are crammed full of imported knick knacks and off-brand shampoo. I'll pass, thanks.
Recently, though, I decided to stop in at a Dollar Tree in our area, and HOLY SMOKES, is that a great store. It's not just knick-knacks any more, that's for sure. Oh, and in case you haven't shopped there, let me be clear - Everything There is $1.00. Here are some of the things I've bought or seen at DT in the past few months:
- Earbuds for Pooh's CD player
- Plug-in speakers for Pooh's CD player
- Jay Jay computer game
- Kid's clothes hangers
- Name-brand cereal
- Flip Flops
- Kids' craft kits
- Scrapbook stuff
- Photo paper
I know you don't need me to list everything in the entire store, but I just wanted to give an idea of the variety of GREAT crap they have there.
It's a great place to buy kids' birthday gifts, too. For less than $10, you can get a gift bag and fill it with several junky toys, which we all know are what the kids love best.
There you have it, internets. Shopping at Dollar Tree, Works For Me. Now be sure to go on over to Shannon's and see what else works!
