What TO BUY at a Dollar Store!

Postby open2life » Sun Jan 30, 2011 12:05 am

After reading Life Learner's thread on "What NOT to buy at a Dollar Store", I thought we could share what we DO BUY when at the Dollar Store?

We always buy our sponges for washing dishes/pots and pans with, there.

And they've got a good selection of cards, not forgetting their great selection of gift bags! Whoo yeah!

I agree with you on the cards and gift bags. I also like their winter gloves. :D

Thanks for starting this Open2life. I buy their round face pads, bandaids, zipperlock baggies & cinnamon/sugar spice. :P

Oh, oh, oh - any one love brownies out there? Believe it or not, Dollarama's Brownie Mix (just add eggs and water) is delicious!

People have asked me for the recipe, after I've baked this :o

Last one, I promise - their bristol board!

Makes a great background for our "art wall".

Painting supplies such as paint trays, brushes, tape are cheap at the dollar store and work great. For such a low price, I don't feel guilty throwing them out when i'm done.

Yeah I like some of the art supplies. Especially the cheepy white acrylic. I can use it with water colour. I use it to block out some spots like liquid paper and paint over those spots again with my water colour so that you don't have undesirable colour seeping though.

We just painted our new baby's room and we used the expensive painter's tape and then we ran out :cry: . So, I used 'dollar store' tape and it actually worked way better. I highly recommend the green paint tape at the dollar store.
