  • We have a treat basket for our son that we fill with $1 items from the dollar store. When he does really well in school or earns a reward for exceptional behavior, he gets to pick something from the basket. We do this instead of an allowance since he is a young 4 yr old and has no concept of money or spending principles.

  • I shop there and I always leave with a basket full of crap...:D

    I love the dollar store, but know that it is junk that I am buying. I should stop buying there, because everything I end up buying there ends up in the dump.

  • cleaners, sodas, papergoods, little toys for 'good behavior' bribes, cheap shampoo for bubblebaths, candles (they don't usually smell long, but its candles nonetheless), seasonal items/decor.
