There are few You Tube channels that I watch or follow, but I love Do It On a Dime! Katherine’s channel is fun, inspiring and also full of brief videos. If you’re not following her, you need to check out her channel!

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!
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
Stickers for card making
Hot glue sticks
Package envelopes for the mail
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?
