8 Dollar Store Deals

I'm al little late to the game but I've discovered the dollar stores; mainly for convenience as it's the closest store to my home. Besides having a unique smell (not bad, but unique) there are some real deals and savings. Here are 8 items that are steals at dollar stores
16-ounce bags of frozen vegetables, large baguettes, jars of spaghetti sauce and boxes of pasta: You can feed a family of four for under $5.
2. Office supplies.
High-quality notepads, desk calendars (themes included the New York Yankees, Disney characters , leather journals, steel-blade scissors, highlighters, an entire array of 3M Post-it products, all a dollar each. No joke, you can stock your office for a cool $10.
Welcome to candle central. You’ll find the same shapes and scents as those seen in high-end stores, plus holders in vintage-inspired colored glass, chic votive and mini Nambé-esque styles. And, yes, they’re 99 cents each. Candles, another buck. Plus, a set of 20 gift bags…you guessed it: one dollar.
Load up on one-dollar man gadgets, like pliers, hammers, tire gauges, screwdrivers, drill bits and the list goes on.
I’m not crafty but at the dollar store you can afford to unleash your financial stress onto a blank canvas or other potential work of art. For one dollar each, you’ll find bags of sequins, beads, shells, magnets, neon erasers, markers, chalk, faux feathers and wooden buttons. Not impressed? They also had kits to make your own wallets, spaceships, dog tags and costumes. Let the pop art begin!
Can you really put a price on beauty? The dollar store can. One-buck nail files, eyelash curlers, pedicure sets, tweezers, loofahs, aromatherapy soaps, bath oils, and back brushes mean you can bring your spa habit home for a ten spot. No tip required.
You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a wall of socks. Floor to ceiling, every color from black to neon, every length from footie to tube, and pattern including solids, stripes, argyle and herringbone. It’s a total trip. A quick online comparison found similar styles $8 and up.
Call them shot glasses, call them bud vases, call them dessert flutes—I found an array of multipurpose cylindrical beauties next to the mother load of cocktail steals, including glasses for martinis, wine, juice and [insert creative use here]. Plus, corkscrews, bottle openers, shakers and more…an intoxicating buck each. Read the rest of the story from MainStreet.com by clicking here.
However, I did find one item that costs more at the dollar store than at regular stores and that's charcoal. But hey, one overpriced item for several under priced? Not a bad deal!
