Hi. I figured I hadn’t posted in a while (sorry, life has been busy) and almost every post I have in the queue requires a photo or something to finish it.
So, instead I decided to start randomly writing ‘Life hints’. You are probably wondering what I mean by a ‘Life hint’. Well, our daughter is in college and we have some other friends that ask my how I find my deals, etc. I figured it was time to write some of them down. (I will figure out how to make a page to list them, but that will be another day.)
So, today is the topic of the local dollar store. If you know me I rarely go into a dollar store, but there are some products that I look at /buy when I do go in.
So, here are the ones I recently purchased:
– Toothbrushes: I haven’t been able to find many (if any) coupons on manual toothbrushes lately and my local store that doubled coupons closed last fall (still sad about that). So, I was very happy when I found Name Brand toothbrushes (3 to a pack) for $1.00. Score! A couple of those went in my hand basket.
– Greeting Cards: Our local dollar store has greeting cards 2 for $1.00. I was able to find some I liked and needed in the next couple of months – Easter, Thank You, Birthday, etc.
Spray Starch – Someone in the local Quilt Guild suggested I buy the cans of Spray Starch so I could starch the material before I cut it out. For $1.00 a can I bought a couple and they worked just fine.
So, what are your favorite products at the dollar store?
Later – H
