Dollar Tree is the store where EVERYTHING is a dollar. I love this store. My kids think it is great to take a dollar and buy a ninja mask, police officer kit or a bag of those little green army men. I, on the other hand, actually purchase items that won’t end up in the Goodwill pile next week!
Yet, not everything is a great deal for $1. Here are a few tips to consider when shopping at Dollar Tree.
1. Look for name brand items you can match with a coupon.
Barilla Pasta (1 lb) $1
*Oftentimes the Sunday paper gets $1/2 coupons.
Softsoap Hand Liquid Soap (8 oz) $1
Use $.35/1 coupon from 1/19 SS insert
$.65 after coupon
Reach Floss (55 yd) $1
*Anytime a $1/2 printable shows up for Reach Floss, we post it!
2. Some name brand items are a great price without a coupon.
Hunts Ketchup (24 oz) $1
Kraft Recipe Makers $1
Yardley Soap $1
*These smell wonderful and would make a great little thank-you for a teacher.
Michelina’s Frozen Entrees $1
3. Birthday supplies are a must buy at Dollar Tree.
Gift Bags $1
4. Books, coloring books, and activity books are a steal at a dollar
Novel Books $1
Activity Books $1
5. Items priced much higher at Walmart or Target
Pregnancy Tests $1
Kids’ Hair Accessories $1
Every Dollar Tree does not carry the exact same items. Here is what I was able to get on my trip this week for only $4.75!
Now it’s your turn. What items do you get at Dollar Tree on a regular basis?
