This 10 Things You Can Buy At The Dollar Store Instead

What would you do with an extra 20.00 a month, 240.00 per year? Save yourself 20.00 or more by switching these 10 purchases to the Dollar Tree without sacrificing quality at all! The store even carries many of the brands you are already buying. You’ll just have to go to your local dollar store and see for yourself which products you can switch to purchasing at the dollar store. These are only some of the items I purchase at the Dollar Tree to save our family money.

1. Greetings Cards
Save yourself approximately 1.50 or more per card purchasing your cards from the dollar store rather than a Hallmark card retailer. The cards at Dollar Tree are just as beautiful or funny than at other stores. I have also purchased beautiful packs of 8-10 Thank You cards for times I’ve been interviewed for jobs or after my son’s baby shower. At this price, you can keep multiple cards for a variety of occasions on hand. Balloons, gift wrap, and other party supplies are also just as well.

2. Pens
Save yourself approximately 4.00 on a pack of pens at Dollar Tree and more if you have other office supplies to get. They carry almost anything you could want, including my usual purchases of poster board and bubble mailers.

3. No Show Socks
Save 1.50 on a pair of no show socks by buying them at the dollar store. I usually by my socks in packs of 8-10, but in the case of dress socks and nylon no show socks I’ve had luck with the quality at Dollar Tree.

4. Shaving Gel
Save another 1.50 on your shaving gel by switching to the dollar store. As a lady, I go through a lot of shaving gel. I do not like shaving cream, but the raspberry gel at Dollar Tree served me just as well as Skintimate or Pure Silk.

5. Pregnancy Tests
Save approximately 3.00 on each pregnancy test you purchase at Dollar Tree. I’m currently fertility charting and just feel comfortable having plenty of tests on hand in case I am nervous I might be pregnant or to give to a friend in need. I have taken identical tests in clinics and feel they are of the same caliber.

6. Tooth-care
Save almost 2.00 on identical toothbrushes and same name brands at Dollar Tree as competing stores. They carry disposable “flossies”, whitening products and toothpastes of well-known brands. I also don’t mind their Lavoris mouthwash.

7. Medicine
Save at least 5.00 on any over the counter medication you purchase from the Dollar Store vs. any other store. It’s been said on the internet before that Dollar Tree’s medication can closely compete and sometimes work even better. They carry a variety you’d have to see for yourself.

8. Gum
Save 1.00 or more on a pack of gum at checkout at the dollar store. For the car or office, to chew before meetings, interviews, or dates, having a pack of gum handy can be the difference between making a good impression or not.

9. Movie Candy
Save at least 1.00 visiting the Dollar Store before a movie instead of the gas station. Whatever your taste, their whole aisle dedicated to candy will provide you your fix.

10. Kitchen Utensils
Save more than a few dollars on anything kitchen related. Dollar Tree carries a lot of Betty Crocker utensils and a whole wall of others. Their baking pans have held up as well as the grocery store’s counterparts. They even carry quality plates, mugs, cups and wine glasses. You can also find Glad-ware and Reynolds wrap!
