Sometimes you just need something small. Maybe something to compliment a gift. Or maybe you need to buy some holiday decorations or even better, you are looking for some DIY Crafts. I have found that the local dollar stores have great prices on foam balls, (great for cake pop holder) or glass bowls and vases, (great for spray painting fun colors). How about party gear, (plates, napkins, give-aways).
For the holiday, we had a tough time finding inexpensive Hanukkah Ornaments. A quick trip to the dollar store and we had blue and white feathers, glitter, stickers, foam for making Hanukkah themed cutouts all perfect to hang on our Hanukkah Bush!
My mom, again always with great advice in hand is a teacher. And as a teacher, she finds herself having to buy some school supplies, (yes schools do not supply everything). She loves to go to the "dollar" store, or Ocean State Job Lot to find some great but inexpensive goodies.
Here are some places that I have found that offer some options for those looking for a little something... keeping budget in mind...
Family Dollar Store
Ocean State Job Lot
Christmas Tree Shops
Happy Discount Shopping!
