My Favorite Things From Dollar Tree

What isn’t to love about a store that sells everything for $1?! We have a couple of really nice Dollar Tree Stores in our area (let’s face it, some aren’t so nice!).  The stores are well-stocked, clean and orderly.  Like any store, you have to know what items are great deals and what itmes are best to purchase elsewhere.  I thought you might like to know my favorite things I pick up when I’m there!

  • Books – I recently got two books about backyards and gardens that are full beautiful pictures, recipes and great ideas that I can’t wait to implement in my yard!
Can you believe this $20 book was at the Dollar Tree?!
  • Cotton Balls
  • Nail polish and polish remover
  • Elf Make-up (when available)
  • Puffs 2-pack purse tissues – these are never with the other purse size packages of tissues.  I usually find them with travel-size items.
  • Organizing bins – I love the colors and sizes
  • Greeting Cards
  • Craft items
    • Scissors
    • Craft sticks
    • Styrofoam balls
    • Stickers for card making
    • Glue sticks
    • Hot glue sticks
  • Package envelopes for the mail
  • Helium Balloons
  • Gift Bags – The ones I showed here came from Dollar Tree
  • Seasonal decor for decorating my children’s classroom at church

I’d say that’s a pretty good list of reasons to check out Dollar Tree, wouldn’t you?

What do you pick up at The Dollar Tree?

  1. Wait till you see my haul on Friday! 🙂 I saw those packs of Puffs in my DT yesterday – right where you said they’d be! 🙂 I’ve never found any good books like that one – what a fun find!


  2. I have Dollar Tree within walking distance of my house. WOO HOO! I am in there several times a week. I have never tried the ELF make-up put someone recommended it to me the other day. My new favorite find from the DT is the micro fiber cleaning cloths. I am going to look for those gardening books. They would be pretty to use as decor.


    1. I’ve heard about those cloths there; I’m going to have to give them a try! Their book selection can be quite random – some days there’s nothing, and other days I find good choices. I hope you find the books I got!


  3. I found a really nice organizing book there once. The book you found looks really good. Now I want to run to the Dollar Tree and see if they have them here!


  4. I have found some fantastic children’s books and a lot of fun educational games, books, charts and other fun items to supplement our homeschool curriculum. I taught a preschool class on bodies of water and water animals and most of our crafts and maps came from Dollar Tree! Recital season is coming up soon, too, and I always get Amy’s flowers (real flowers die and make her sad) and a few small prizes or glow sticks from Dollar Tree. It takes some searching sometimes, but it’s worth it. 🙂


  5. We LOVE the dollar tree! We pick up trinkets for the kids’ treasure chest, stuff for their classrooms, and often seasonal decor items.
