    I was wondering how many of you shop at dollar stores and if you do, what are you buying or looking for?

    I got my containters that I put my cookies in for gifts there..

    I also like to buy my wrapping paper there..

    and I know you get less but here is why.

    I always bought big rolls and had to use it for years strait..

    so I get smaller rolls and get to change it up.

    The wrapping thing is right. I already used up the rolls that I bought and now I have to go get more. But we have all kinds of difrent wrapping paper and I think that makes it all look better I think when it all doesn't match.

    I get my rubber gloves and a lot of my cleaning supplies there. All of my foil and zippy bags. Craft items. I got yarn that was selling for almost $4 at WalMart for $1....same brand, colors, amount. Gift bags, boxes, paper. One of the strangest I guess is microwave popcorn. Oh, and white rice and noodles. I save a LOT of money shopping there.

    Oh....I almost forgot one of the best things mine has done for me lately! I NEEDED black pepper but I couldn't find coarse ground anywhere. Dollar Tree has these wonderful disposable salt and pepper grinders. So, I now can fresh grind my pepper (even has an adjustable grinder) and it was onlyt $1!!!!!!!! [​IMG]

    I certainly do... I go there to get random things -- candles, gift bags, bubble bath, baskets, etc. Sometimes, I'll get off-brand cleaning supplies there (my favorite thing to grab is the all-powerful orange oil degreaser). When I was in college, I'd get plates and glasses there. The dollar store is also a great place to find snack foods.

    My favorite dollar stores are the Dollar Tree chain stores.

    Some items at the dollar store are a good value, and other things there are plain junk. It depends on what one is looking for.
