Do you shop at those stores where everything is a $1.00? I go there sometimes and I end up coming home with all kinds of crap that I don`t need!

  • I love those stores! Even if you end up with things you don't really need, you haven't spent an arm and a leg for them.

  • The Dollar store? lol yeah and I always come home with crap I don't need! lol Its a good place to do for halloween candy and birthday party items for treat bags though. And my kids like the cheap toys they are not picky so sometimes I'll take them in there and let them pick something out lol I figured they like it and they are just going to tear it up anyway! :)

  • Um, yeah. There is one within walking distance of my house, so we end up there a little too often!! LOL! (On the positive side, however, there are actually some things we used to get at Wal-Mart that we found are much cheaper at the dollar store...such as vitamins, toothpaste, etc and they have brands we like.) I love buying candles there, because I can stock up on a bunch of different ones without spending much money.

  • I love the dollar stores for the most part. I will find all kinds of stuff.. but I don't ever go in there alone. I usually go with one of my friends - we help each other decide if we really need this or that lol so we don't bring home too much junk!

  • I don't really go much, those everything's $1 doesn't really have much that's worth $1. The Dollar General has some good prices on cleaning stuff, but not good enough for a special trip.
