I was about 10 years old when the first Dollar Store came to my home town ( it was a $.99 store). I remember thinking it was the best store on earth, no more looking at price tags. It was if I was instantly wealthy and could have what ever I wanted, tossed it in the cart because after all it was only a dollar. But soon found it was easy to rack up quite a bill of those “only a dollar” deals. I am still a fan of the dollar store but have also learned that there are lots of hidden bargains to be found… but also tons of not so good deals.
One of my frugal friends recommended the site Learn Vest, they send out a daily email with money tips, crafts, decorating ideas… frugal living. I have to say I really enjoy their articles and find them useful… best part they are not spammy or filled with ads.
This week they wrote a great guide of Hot items to be found at the dollar store, and items to pass up or leave at the store. I found it very useful and thought you may enjoy it as well. But I can not cut and paste the list so If you want to take a peek at it you will need to head over to Learn Vest. Their site is free to join, but does require an email (you can always use your coupon email, if you want to keep you inbox clear..but I rather enjoy their updates) In the search bar, in the top right type in:Dollar Store Deals: Which Ones Are Worth It?
Do you like the dollar store? What do you like to buy there?
