On more than several occasions last weekend, my house guest from California pointed at something in my house, asked where I got it and heard me reply, "Dollar Tree."
At first, I answered kind of sheepishly. By the third or fourth time, I was almost proudly exclaiming, "why, the dollar store, of course," as a look of amazement passed over her face. She obviously was astonished that such wonderful wares could be had at such a bargain price (I hope).
So, here's my current short list of favorite items recently bought at the Dollar Tree.
- Frying pan splatter screen: Cover up frying bacon, keep stovetop grease-free, pop in the dishwasher, buy another when this one falls apart.
- Ice cream cone bubbles. Scented bubbles in fun, colorful containers. Three bottles for a $1. Buy more when they run out.
- Little girl's high heels. Cute slides in fashionable shiny colors that complement any princess dress-up outfit. We bought two pairs - only $2! - so there's no fighting over them during playdates. One has already torn, guess we'll buy another pair
OK, 'fess up. What's your favorite Dollar Tree purchase?
