    I buy random items at dollar stores. It depends on the deals. I love looking!

    I don't really go to the dollar stores here in Canada, but I can tell you that the ones I have been to haven't had much anything for a dollar. I find that you get better deals on things like toilet paper, paper towels, etc from the drug stores (Shoppers Drug Mart had paper towels for 49 cents a roll last week - wish I had gone ).

    Dollar Tree does sell everything for a dollar, except for the items that are 2 for $1 or 3 for $1. Most items are a good deal there, but the stores generally get trashed by frantic customers by the end of the day. It can't be a fun place to work. There are occasional inexplicable finds ... one time they had 8 copies of Stephen King's book "On Writing", I couldn't resist at $1 each -- I gave 4 as Xmas presents and sold the others for about $8 each. I don't do sudoku, but if my wife wants a word search puzzle book, why pay $6.95 at the book store when they're $1 here?

    Dollar Tree, everything is a dollar. I usually go there about once a month. Mostly just for various little things.

    I've gotten some containers and garbage cans there. I mainly like browsing. As for cleaning products, it's so much cheaper and safer to use baking soda and vinegar around the house.

    I shop at the dollar Tree. I buy cards, gift bags, stocking stuffers, cooking utensils, their Mylar balloons are a great deal I always buy four balloons and a small toy or stuffed animal as a balloon weight so for $5 I get a nice bunch of balloons where as at the other stores you can't get two balloons for that price. I also buy my children's coloring books there. They are HUGE with lots of nice pictures. I refuse to pay $5 for a wimpy coloring book at other stores! I've also found many really nice books there for $1. I love the Dollar Tree!

    Oh I forgot to mention batteries, which are a great deal. I stopped there last night because my smoke detector started chirping at me.

    Here too. I always buy my greeting cards there--can't beat 50 cents LOL

    I don't know why I never buy cleaning stuff there. I'll have to look next time.

    You can go online to the Dollar Tree website and buy stuff by the case, and have it shipped free to your local Dollar Tree.....then you just pick it up at the store....I buy some stuff for my business that way....they usually don't have enough in stock on the shelves.
