  • I got these really pretty butterflies for my daughters room. They're wire with different colored mesh wrapped around them with glitter. It was at the dollar tree. I bought them before she was born. She's 2 now and they're still there. It's my favorite piece of wall decor in her room and they were only a dollar. :)

  • I love shop at the dollar tree for scrapbooking items. You can find stuff that there for $1 that would cost 5-10 dollars at walmart. Also, I threw a baby shower for my cousin last year and I bought practically everything I needed there, it ended up costing me a fraction of the price that I had originally planned. I go there atleast once a week.
