Shopping and Saving at Dollar Tree! 

 
You don't always have to spend a ton of money to get what you need. A lot of the times you are just paying for brand names and not the item itself. I wanted to share a few things you should be buying from Dollar Tree. You can still get decent products but at a much lower cost.
 
Right now, we are in need of keeping a budget more than ever. If you've already cut extra costs, another extra step you can do is switch from a brand named products to store brands. For example, you can switch from a name brand bottle of soap to a just-as-effective bottle from the Dollar Tree! Seriously, you can save hundreds of dollars when you switch out some of your regularly bought essentials, and your pockets and bank account will thank you!
 
If you switch from brand names to the items I have listed below, you could save roughly $300 or more per month! 
 
1. SOAP
Dollar Tree is a great place to buy soap. Why pay more elsewhere when you can score a steal of a deal at Dollar Tree. I recently got a name brand Jergens Extra Moisturizing Hand Soap ($8.00 elsewhere) for ONE DOLLAR!
 
2. STATIONERY
If you’re anything like me, you cannot walk past a stationery aisle without checking it out. There’s just something about pens, pencils, post its, notebooks, and other office supplies that make me feel like I’ve got my life together. Ya know? And Dollar Tree has got it all!
 
3. TEACHING SUPPLIES
As a homeschool mom, I go crazy for the little Teachers Corner. But really, so many people can benefit from the teaching supplies from Dollar Tree. Teachers, homeschooling moms, and any parent who loves finding creative ways to teach their kids can use the teaching aids and instructional materials from Dollar Tree instead of other high price stores.
 
4. CALENDARS & PLANNERS
I love the calendars and planners at Dollar Tree! I am a total planner freak. I mean I love the planners, stickers, accessories – the whole deal. Planners and accessories can be quite expensive at other stores but the Dollar Store makes this habit a pretty affordable one!

5. STICKERS
STICKERS! Dollar Tree has so many stickers! Stickers for your planner, stickers for kids – Dollar Tree has ’em all!
 
6. PUZZLES
My kids absolutely love building puzzles. The great thing is that Dollar Tree has so many options – different characters, different sizes, a various range of difficulty levels, and for several ages.
 
7. BOOKS
You can also find storybooks, activity books, coloring books, and puzzle books such as crossword and word search. These books can keep kids occupied for hours at a time! And you have each for just one dollar!
 
8. TOYS
Dollar Tree carries a wide variety of toys for both girls and boys. Some of the toys you can get include dolls and dolls accessories, trucks, toy instruments, etc. Just make sure that the toy you choose is age-appropriate and does not contain little pieces that can be a choking hazard.
 
9. CRAFT ITEMS
Thrifty crafters LOVE Dollar Tree. You can make a ton of cool projects using cool Dollar Tree finds. For example, who knew you could make a lovely wreath using a pizza pan and a table mat?! From wire wreath frames to mod podge, to ribbons – Dollar Tree makes crafting quite affordable
 
 
10. PARTY SUPPLIES
Dollar Tree is the perfect place to get all your party supplies for upcoming parties, on a budget. Get party supplies for birthday parties, baby showers, bridal showers, graduation parties, and more! There’s everything from party favors to games, balloons, birthday candles, and more!  But wait! Got a party theme? No worries! Whether your theme is dinosaurs or unicorns, Dollar Tree has got it covered. You can throw your cheapest party yet… But still, have it look like a million bucks!
 
11. GIFTS
You can look around for a great gift item. There are so many things to choose from even though you’re on a budget. You can even choose to put together a package using a few different items from the store.
 
12. GREETING CARDS
Greeting Cards from Dollar Tree is another great buy. Greeting Cards can be pretty expensive in other stores but at Dollar Tree, you can get 2 cards for $1.00!
 
13. GIFT BAGS AND GIFT WRAP
After you grab your gifts, you can get gorgeous gift bags and gift wrap from the Dollar Tree too!
 
14. PAPERWARE AND PLASTICWARE
You can get all your paperware and plasticware for way cheaper at Dollar Tree than if you were to buy them elsewhere. Whether it’s for an event or to just keep at home, you can grab various colors, patterns, and styles. Plastic tablecloths are so versatile because they can be used to change up the feel of a room, for outdoor events, for picnics, and even for crafts such as a Plastic Tablecloth Wreath! 
 
Lighted Centerpieces
 
15. SNACKS
Dollar Tree can also satisfy all your snack needs without putting a strain on your wallet! Popcorn, cookies, chips, crackers, snack cakes, candy, gum and so much more – all just $1.00. Just check the expiry date and you’re good to go!
 
16. TOILETRIES
Lotion, shampoo & conditioner, shaving cream, feminine items, cotton balls, and swabs can all be bought from Dollar Tree to save money. Of course, I don’t recommend buying brands that you’ve never tried or heard of, but surprisingly, you can often find reputable brands for the usual $1.00! 
 
17. MAKEUP & COSMETICS
I love some name brand makeup products, but I still buy makeup from Dollar Tree. I don’t buy things like foundations and powders that can aggravate my skin but I do grab mascaras, eyeliners, lip liners, etc. And they work great!  Some of my prettiest nail polishes have also come from Dollar Tree (and they were 70% cheaper than other stores).
 
18. ORAL CARE ITEMS
Oral care items such as toothpaste, toothbrushes, floss, and mouthwash can also be bought from Dollar Tree to save money! 
 
19. HAIR BRUSHES AND HAIR ACCESSORIES
Need a new hairbrush or comb? What about hair accessories? Get all these and more at Dollar Tree. Why pay higher prices in other stores, right?! Get styling gels, hair colors, styling tools, headbands, hair elastics, scrunchies, clips, trimming scissors, and all your other hair needs for just $1.00!
 
20. FIRST AID SUPPLIES
You can even build or top up your First Aid Kit, on a budget, using items from Dollar Tree! 
 
 
21. KITCHEN ITEMS
Utensils, cookware, bakeware, towels, mittens, and more can all be bought from Dollar Tree! Some of these items will be 2 or 3 times the Dollar Tree price when you check other stores. 
 
22. PLASTIC CONTAINERS
You can never have enough plastic containers! Dollar Tree makes it really easy to stock up though! Plastic containers are great for storing leftovers or marinating meats and storing cut-up veggies when meal planning!
 
23. FOOD
Food can also be a great buy from Dollar Tree. I know that everyone will have their own opinion on this. But you can often find awesome choices for breakfast such as cereals, canned goods, pasta, condiments, spices, sauces, drinks and so much more! Combine this with other budget grocery shopping tips and your savings will quadruple in no time! Just be sure to check expiry dates as usual. 
 
BONUS TIP: You can even get cash back (which means even GREATER SAVINGS) by shopping at Dollar Tree Online and cashing in on huge deals with Rakuten). Imagine huge deals on top of prices that are already so low!
Here’s what members have earned so far from Dollar Tree: $7,990 in Total Cash Back to date.
I use Rakuten for my very own savings and cash back too! 
 
24. COFFEE FILTERS
As a coffee lover, this had to be its own point. I drink A LOT of coffee and coffee filters can be an unnecessary additional cost. Most times I skip the coffee filters altogether but for those of you who can’t, you can always grab a pack at Dollar Tree. 
 
25. HOME DECOR
Dollar Tree has a wide variety of home decor pieces such as frames, candles, vases, decorative storage cubes, etc. Whether you choose to change them up is totally up to you. I mean, a Dollar Tree frame paired with a printable quote from online can make your home look like a million bucks.
 
26. SEASONAL DECOR
If you’re looking for seasonal decor for any occasion whatsoever, Dollar Tree is your place! For Christmas, Thanksgiving, Easter, 4th of July, or for Summer as a whole, you can find cheap decor to help you spruce up your home. 
 
 
27. STORAGE BINS & PLASTIC BASKETS
Aside from decoration storage cubes, if you’re looking for storage bins and baskets to store toys, out-of-season clothes, or anything else really, the storage bins from Dollar Tree will help you do so easily on a budget!
 
28. CLEANING SUPPLIES
Cleaning Supplies is another must-buy from Dollar Tree. They have everything from all-purpose cleaners to floor cleaners. By now, you may have realized that you might as well schedule a monthly Dollar Tree run, with your usual grocery run!
 
29. PAPER PRODUCTS
And while you’re making your Dollar Tree run, be sure to grab your much-needed paper products such as napkins, paper towels, and toilet paper. You will save so much from getting them there!
 
30. LIGHT  BULBS
Light bulbs are yet another good buy from Dollar Tree that can end up saving you huge bucks!
 
31. READING GLASSES
You can grab a pair or two of reading glasses from Dollar Tree if this is something you usually use. With glasses being kinda in these days, you can just pick it up to make a fashion statement. Hey, it’s just a dollar!  
 
 
32. PREGNANCY TESTS
Pregnancy (and ovulation) tests can be super expensive - especially when you’re trying to conceive and you’re a compulsive tester. Dollar tree eases the burden a bit with cheaper but just as effective tests! 
 
33. SOCKS
I love socksI live in my PJs and socks at home. We get the cutest socks at Dollar Tree – without spending a ton! 
 

FINAL THOUGHTS

Obviously, some of the things on this list may not be absolutely necessary but remember that sometimes you need to spend a little to save a lot! Don’t go crazy every single time. But give yourself a little wiggle room and have fun with it! At the same time, don’t buy things just because you can. If you don’t want it and you wouldn’t use it, don’t waste your money!
 
Definitely take advantage of the good deals that you can get on the things that you NEED. Things like cleaning products, toilet paper, and food can help you save a lot!  Some of these items can actually save you up to 75%!
