Now I'm used to the dollar store places...like Dollar tree....but DH and I never really had a need to save back on items so I would just get everything at walmart due to ease. Well we have a HUGE new dollar tree and I had to go in really quick today to pick up some vinyl gloves to stain some trim. Well since we really have to watch it I looked around and OMG they have EVERYTHING! I went ahead and got some things we needed anyway:

I got 2 laundry baskets

2 large packs of photo paper---I take a lot of pics and this is SOOO cheap!

4 or 5 rolls of that spongy stuff you line shelves with

2 garland greenery things for my new cabinets

a roll of plastic drop cloth

the gloves

a pack of sponges

2 of their brand anywhere sanitizing spray

for 18.02! I was so happy lol! I couldn't have gotten the baskets and 1 thing of paper for that at walmart! The SAME paper at walmart is 8.95!

Thanks to Maitri for my wonderful siggy!

I LOVE dollar tree. I always walk out with a basket full of stuff for $20! I get all my toothbrushes there. Why pay $3 for 1 toothbrush when you can get 5 toothbrushes for $1!!!!

oooohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Welcome to the SSDTS! (that's, secret society of dollar tree sisters)

I love love love dollar tree! Sometimes I find really cool treasures like 4 packs of gerber baby food for a buck, boxes of betty crocker fruit treats (afterschool snacks for the kids), etc. I also discovered their fabulous line of party supplies (even the MYLAR BALLOONS!) when I was trying to give my oldest a decent but cheap party!

Yes; Dollar Tree rawks.

I LOVE the Dollar Tree. It's like Christmas everytime I go in there. All the time I find items that are either name brand and still $1 or would usually cost $20 and are there anyway. I love finding books there especially. Oooo, and medicine cabinet stuff ... and oh gee how I love that place!

Let's all do the Dollar Tree Dance!!
