It's not just for party supplies and beach noodle toys anymore. Yes our neighborhood dollar store I have found lately, is the 'go-to' spot for many of our household needs. Not only that, but when my kids visit their grandparents, they always look forward to their ride to this frugal establishment with Papi for their shopping spree- now that's just genius! I mean, my 19 year old just stays home and is obviously not as excited, but his 4 and 8 year old siblings go wild at the sheer thought of the candy and toys they'll grab inside this place!
As I stated before, The Dollar Store is where folks usually go for the last minute gift bag, party napkins, balloons, etc. But I have also picked up some fabulous nail polish colors, mail packaging and office materials, greeting cards (good ones too!), wine glasses, and cookbooks for four quarters a piece! What's more, brand name and off-brand comparable food stuffs are also found on the shelves. Everything from frozen fruits and vegetables to seasonings and condiments are found in these stores and make perfect 'cents' to your budget! (see how I did that, ha!)
