The Best Things to buy at the Dollar Store

The dollar store is a great resource to get everyday items without breaking the budget. Here are the items I love (and recommend) to get at the dollar store.

School/Office Supplies

Regardless of the time of year, you can always find a crazy amount of school and office supplies. Most stores have at least one entire aisle dedicated to these supplies. Everything from writing utensils to notebooks to project materials, you are sure to find exactly what you need. writing utensils to notebooks to project materials, you are sure to find exactly what you need.

Arts & Crafts Supplies

Just like the office supplies, dollar stores are full of great arts and craft supplies. They mostly have basic stuff like washi tape, glue, and some cardstock, but the variety depends on the actual dollar store itself. So before you head to your local arts and crafts store, check out the dollar store first to see if they have just what you are looking for.

Holiday Decorations

There are always really cute and affordable decorations for pretty much all holidays and seasons. Funny enough, most stores have decorations months before the actual holiday. Much of the decorations actually lasts a few years as long as you take care of them.

Kitchen Supplies

For anyone moving into their first place or even away for school, the dollar store is a great place to get your first batch of kitchen supplies such as cutlery, or places or even sandwich and freezer bags. You'll be able to easily stock upon the supplies needed to get your culinary sources started, within reason.

Gift Wrap

I'm always surprised to see the amount and variety of gift wrap at dollar stores. Just like office and school supplies, most dollar stores usually have an entire wall dedicated just to gift wrap. Everything from cards to bags to wrapping paper and everything in between can be found there.


If you have a case of the munchies, going to the movies, or about to go on a road trip, you should head to the dollar store to get some goodies. Often, the dollar store carries brand names. You can find gum, chips, chocolate, and gummies to satisfy your most intense snack craving.
