School, Office and Craft Supplies
Party Supplies and Gift Wrap
Plastic Wrap and Sandwich Bags — The wrap is cheap and they put fewer bags in each box.
Anything With An Electrical Cord — Lack of quality can make these items dangerous.
Cookware and Utensils — These junky tools don’t last.
Jarred Spices –Who knows how long they’ve been on the shelf.
Batteries — For a dollar, you just don’t get a lot of juice out of them.
My last trip to the dollar store was for a few hand towels for the barbeque grill. I got them plus a 3-pack of Big Red gum and a set of plastic drinking glasses. I guess I just couldn’t pass up a bargain! Check out his fun song about the dollar store shopping experience.
