What I always buy at the dollar tree

Here is a list of things I buy at The Dollar Tree. Before I was a mom, I hardly ever shopped at this store but once I realized I really need to watch how much I’m spending on things I started shopping there! There are so many things that aren’t necessary to spend a lot of money on. For example, cards, wrapping supplies and more! Read on to find out what I buy at The Dollar Tree.

Party Supplies

Do you have a birthday party to plan, or a party to attend? You are probably going to need something to wrap a gift in, or some balloons for that special birthday boy! I always go to the dollar store for stuff like this. Have you ever noticed how insanely expensive these items are at other stores? I’m sorry, but I don’t have to pay $4 for a card and like $5 for a gift bag and tissue paper. Yes, there are really cute bags out there but it is unnecessary and I would rather spend that money on the gift itself. When my daughter had her 1st birthday, I went to a party store and purchased all of her decorations. I realized that I had spent $80 and I didn’t even get that much. A friend told me to check out the dollar store so I went there and I think I spent only about $20. That’s a huge difference! Especially if everything is just going to end up in the garbage. Here are some other great finds…

$1 Craft Supplies at Dollar Tree!


The Dollar Tree has a ton of holiday items. I try to save as much money as I can during the holidays, so the dollar store is one of my favorite places to shop.

For the home

They have a ton of things for your home at the Dollar Tree. I personally don’t buy a lot of the cleaning supplies because I like more natural products, but if you don’t mind then it’s a great deals. Also, I haven’t exactly done the math but it seems like some items would be a better deal if you bought it in bulk. Again, I could be wrong so don’t quote me on that but there are things I would rather buy and places like Costco or Sams Club. Mainly because I don’t want to be going back to the store every week when I run out. Here are some items that I will buy for things around the house.


Sponges and other utensils


Hair accessories and combs
