Dollar Tree – A New Favorite – Who Knew?

I like a good deal, but I always thought dollar stores were a little dirty and full of junk. But I’ve since learned some dollar stores are full of good deals and very entertaining for my 4 and 2 year old.

For Brooke’s last birthday, I purchased a pile of Elmo gear at Party City for about a million dollars.   Soon after, my mom called to say she found Elmo plates and cups at Dollar Tree for, yes, $1. And then, at the party, my sister-in-law showed up with a car full of helium filled foil Elmo balloons from Dollar Tree. I then decided I loved Dollar Tree.

By the time Joe’s birthday rolled around, we had discovered the Dollar Tree in the River Oaks shopping center. It is very clean and the staff is friendly. They have a ton of gift bags, party gear and foil balloons. All for $1.

My kids like it so much that we sometimes go to find one special treasure as a little reward.   Last week we selected (after searching through the entire store) the “robot arm” (as we call it).

This made for some happy kids.

Do you have any good dollar stores around you?
