On a tight budget, it may seem impossible to afford anything, but one trip to the dollar store will leave you feeling like a millionaire. Ok, that's definitely an exaggeration, but the dollar store can certainly help out where you need it. Shop with care, however, some items are a bargain, while others are a complete waste of time.
Office and School Supplies (Good)
While some may advise you to avoid buying these at a dollar store, most office and school supplies still work at a discount price. Look for the brands that you trust. Some things aren’t worth the buy, like scissors and glue, but most others are.
For any fixing that needs to be done around the house, grab your tools anywhere but the dollar store. For something sturdy and reliable to handle any job, you need to pay more. Let your search begin, bargain hunters!
Party Supplies (Good)
It'll be a party once you bring in those lit savings from the dollar store. Most decorations wind up being thrown away, even if you pay a higher price. You may as well save on the colorful future trash you're paying for.
